First ISRM online lecture by Prof. Wulf Schubert, "50 years NATM - from a construction method to a system", 19 Feb. 2013, 10 a.m. GMT

The ISRM Board decided to start an ISRM Online Lectures Series. Experts in different fields of rock mechanics will be invited to give a lecture on a specific topic. Each lecture will be broadcast from the ISRM website at a predefined date and time, and the attendees will be able to ask questions to the lecturer by e-mail, on the topic of the lecture, during the subsequent 48 hours. The ISRM Online Lectures will remain available on the ISRM website in a dedicated webpage.

Our plans are to organise four Online Lectures per year. The first one will be broadcast on 19 February, at 10 a.m. GMT, and it will remain online so that those those unable to attend at this time will be able to do it later. In order to know what is the correspondence between GMT and your local time, just look for GMT in your Internet search engine.

For the first Online Lecture the ISRM President decided that it would be a good opportunity to listen to the developments in the well-known New Austrian Tunnelling Method, now that it formally completed 50 years of existence. The invited speaker will be Prof. Wulf Schubert from Austria, and the title of his lecture will be "50 years NATM - from a construction method to a system".
