5th International Conference on Geotechnical Research and Engineering (ICGRE’20)

October 18, 2020 - October 20, 2020 | Lisbon , Portugal


IMPORTANT: As the health and safety of our participants is our top priority, we have been carefully monitoring the likely situation for our upcoming conference regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Although we are currently planning to hold the conference on postponed schedule which is October 18 – 20, 2020, we will update our website and inform all attendees if there are any changes.

Please note that we will publish the proceedings of the conference including all accepted papers and extension abstracts around the mid of September, 2020 which will potentially be before the conference is held. This is to make sure that we can meet the expectation of the authors regarding the publication of their papers in the conference proceedings.

Please also note that for authors with extended abstract only, we have decided to extend our paper submission deadline to July 24, 2020. The deadline for short and full papers are same as announced previously, July 1, 2020.

In the case of external factors outside of the author’s control (ex. Visa rejection, coronavirus, family emergency, etc.), we will provide the option for registered authors to present via a 10-15 minutes video that will be shown at the conference. Thank you for your patience during these uncertain times and for more information about this option, please email info@icgre.org


The Conference Proceedings will be published with an ISSN and ISBN, indexed in Scopus and Google Scholar, and archived permanently in Portico.
