Update on the ISRM Specialized Conference - VI Brazilian Rock Mechanics Symposium, Goiania, Brazil, September 9-13, 2014

The VI Brazilian Rock Mechanics Symposium, a Specialized ISRM Conference, is way under preparation. The Technical Committee has accepted 92 papers distributed amongst the four themes of the event: - Laboratory and Field Tests, - Numerical Modeling in Rock Engineering, - Open Pit and Underground Mining Applications of Rock Mechanics - Rock Mechanics for the Petroleum Industry. The Preliminary Technical Program includes two short courses, one Workshop on Rock Mechanics Challenges from Petroleum Applications, two Keynote Speakers, nine parallel technical sessions. The venue will happen in parallel to three other events: the Brazilian Soil Mechanics Conference, the Brazil-Portugal Geotechnical Symposium and the Young Geotechnical Professionals Symposium. The organizers are expecting over 1200 participants and about 50 exhibitors for what is promising to be a great opportunity to exchange technical knowledge and establishing new contacts and renewing old ones. A fun question and answer type of competition (RockBowl) amongst student teams from Brazilian Universities will be held: the winner team will receive funds to attend the 2015 ISRM Congress in Montreal, Canada. Sérgio Fountoura Chairman of the Organising Committee
