15th International Conference of the International Association for Computer Methods and Advances in Geomechanics

      It is my greatest pleasure to invite you to attend the 15th International Conference of the International Association for Computer Methods and Advances in Geomechanics (15th IACMAG) on October 19-23, 2017 in Wuhan, China.

      The 15th IACMAG aims to provide a forum for exchanging new experiences and discussing future developments of computer methods in Geomechanics and geotechnical engineering and other important and related topics like constitutive modeling and wide applications. The main theme is “Advance of Computer Methods in Geomechanics” to emphasize the critical role of computer methods in meeting geotechnical engineering requirements for development and the need to protect and preserve our environment. The conference will cover the entire scope of computer methods and current research topics in Geomechanics and geotechnical engineering. In addition to the 4-day technical program, we will also organize technical visits, exhibitions, social programs, and programs for accompanying persons. Pre-conference workshops and short courses will also be organized.

      The host city-Wuhan-is the capital of Hubei Province in central China and is situated on Jianghan Plain, a river-crossed fertile land created by the Hanjiang River joining the Yangtze River. Wuhan is a routine port for a Yangtze River cruise. Divided by the Yangtze, the city is known as the Three Towns of Wuhan with Hankou and Hanyang on the west bank, and Wuchang on the east.

      Not only does Wuhan offer very convenient transportation for attendees, but also she is the place with both history and natural wonders such as Hubei Provincial Museum, Yellow Crane Tower, Yangtze River Bridge, East Lake, Three Gorges Dam located at Yichang where it is only 2 hours by train from Wuhan, and so on, all which make Wuhan a top destination for all travelers. Meanwhile, with her numerous research institutes, universities and colleges, Wuhan is also the scientific and educational center in central China. The website www.hubeitour.gov.cn may help you to prepare for your travel. Put Wuhan on your itinerary; you will not be disappointed.

      We are looking forward to your kind support and attending 15th IACMAG held in Wuhan in 2017.


      Sincerely yours,

      Xia-Ting Feng
