Wish you all a Merry X'mas and a Happy New Year 2016.




This is the first conference of its kind to cover both geo-energy and geo-environment areas that are highly relevant and essential to maintaining the sustainability of the society. Researchers from these areas are most welcome to join, to contribute and share new ideas and information, and to advance scientific knowledge for the benefit of mankind.

Format of Conference

This conference will be featured by two IAS distinguished lectures and several invited keynotes, which will be delivered by prominent professors and researchers around the world.  Moreover, two-page extended abstracts will be invited and all extended abstracts will be included in the 2015 Geo-Energy and Geo-Environment Conference Proceedings.  Authors will be notified whether their extended abstract is selected for an oral presentation or a poster presentation. 

Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to extend their work to be revised and published in either of the following journals (special issues):

1.  Canadian Geotechnical Journal (expected to be published in early 2017)
2.  Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment  (expected to be published in March 2017)
3.  Journal of Zhejiang University-Science A (Applied Physics & Engineering) (expected to be published in July 2016).
