The International Society for Soil Mechanics, Geotechnical Engineering Technical Committee TC102, and the Australian Geomechanics Society invite participation in ISC’5, the 5th International Conference on Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterisation.

We are very excited to announce that the venue for ISC’5 is Jupiters Gold Coast, minutes from the world famous Gold Coast beaches, and surrounded by accommodation, some of which will be offered with special conference rates.

The organizing committee have assembled a stellar line up of international keynote presenters; and this will be supported by contributed presentations from industry professionals from around the globe.

ISC’5 will span the first week of September 2016; and we encourage those travelling from other parts of the world to consider extending their stay; to either further explore Queensland, or to see other sites within Australia. Check out the information that we have available for you on under our Location tab. Tourism Australia have some amazing suggested itineraries for visitors to Australia; and September is a beautiful time of the year in Australia to explore the country.

We look forward to welcoming colleagues to Australia in September 2016; and to your engagement in the coming months with ISC’5.
