8th international conference on earthquake geotechnical engineering (8ICEGE)

Calls for abstracts and special session proposals

The 8 ICEGE organizing committee invites an abstract of 200-400 words.

The abstracts should be submitted via the online conference submission system. Please select the two related topics and the preferred session when submitting your abstract.

The deadline for abstract submission is 10th March 2023.
The deadline for abstract submission is extended to 10th April 2023 

Notification of acceptance of your abstract and an invitation to submit a full paper will be sent around May 2023. Only one abstract/full paper can be submitted under one account; if you wish to submit more than one abstract/full paper, please create a new account.

Please note that there is no discount on the registration fee for multiple submissions. Any questions regarding the abstract submission should be addressed to the 8 ICEGE Organizing Committee at Submission8ICEGE@gmail.com.

Abstract Submission

Full-Paper Template
  The organizing committee of the 8th ICEGE invites proposals for special sessions to be organized at the conference. Special sessions provide an opportunity to focus on emerging topics that are not reflected in the general sessions. A special session could address a particular theme, report a certain earthquake or consist of work of an international research project that involves contributions of the earthquake geotechnical engineering community. Specific areas of earthquake geotechnical engineering can be also a special session topic, in which authors of accepted papers would like to gather together to discuss the topic and their papers. Special sessions include presentations of not too many papers to allow for adequate discussion.

Proposal Content
Prospective organizers of special sessions should send their proposals by email to the Special Session Committee (email: SpecialSession8ICEGE@gmail.com). It is important to include the proposals of the expected speakers and papers when proposing a special session. In addition, prospective speakers should have their abstracts submitted by the same date as general presentation speakers.

The proposal should include the following information:
  • Title of the special session.
  • Organizers of the special session.
  • Brief session description with 2-3 paragraphs, explaining the goal of the special session.
  • Expected speakers and papers (List of possible presentation titles and speakers is also needed. All expected speakers should submit their abstract by selecting “Special Session” by the deadline for the abstract submission) and the possibility to accept papers that deal with a similar topic but are submitted to a general session.
  • 3-5 keywords.
N.B. Time allocation to the special session has not been determined yet, but assume that the length of the session is 90/120 min.
Deadline for submissions of special session proposals: March 10, 2023
