ECPMG 2020 will take place 6th to 8th September 2020
Due to the recent developments of the spread of the COVID-19 in Sweden, subsequent travel restrictions and the overall conference agendas, the organising committee has decided to held the conference ECPMG 2020 between 6th to 8th September.
The conference will be held as a “hybrid” conference taking into account the constantly changing travelling rules for each individual countries. Hybrid refers to delegates able to participate physically joined by delegates who will present their contributions online and can actively take part in discussions.
The program will be adopted for the special requirements for online participations with more and shorter sessions and more short breaks to adjust to the challenges of full day webcam presentation. Authors and presenters are asked to indicate if they want to present their contribution. A decision of joining physically can be done till end of August to react to the individual travel restrictions.
The conference fee for physical participitation will remain at 3500 SEK. Participation online will be 750 SEK and will be a little surprise. Printed conference proceedings are available for 500 SEK. Refund, difference between online and physical registration fees and all other financial issues will be dealt after the conference.
The 4th European Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics, ECPMG 2020, is organised by the Soil Mechanics reasearh group at Luleå University of Technology, under the auspices of the TC104 Technical Committee of Physical Modelling of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE).
