VII South American Congress on Rock Mechanics - Lima, Peru, 2-4 December 2010: Call for Papers|
Following the success achieved in the Seminar on Geo-engineering Applied to Mining and Construction, which was held in Lima, Peru, in February 2010, the Peruvian Society of Geo-engineering is pleased to announce that is currently organizing the 7th South American Congress on Rock Mechanics, which will take place in Lima, Peru, from December 2 to 4, 2010 and will be co-sponsored by the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM) and the Peruvian Institute of Mining Engineers (IIMP).
The aim of this forthcoming congress is to offer a space where the world's most respected experts in the field of rock mechanics can share their experiences with their South American colleagues and discuss with them the most recent advances in this important discipline of engineering.
Most South American countries share the challenge of having to design and build a variety of complex engineering works (roads, tunnels and hydro-power stations) within the Andes, as well as mining the vast mineral resources hosted by this important mountain range, which means that civil and mining engineers working in this part of the world have been able to accumulate a rich and valuable technical experience in surface and underground engineering in rugged and difficult rock environments.
Call for technical papers has already been launched, the deadline for submission of abstracts having been set at May 30, 2010.
If you are interested in participating in the Congress and/or in submitting a technical paper, you are kindly invited to download the attached document and/or to contact the Organizing Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
