The annual Geomechanics Colloquium in Salzburg has developed as an important meeting point for experts in Central Europe. The event with the associated exhibition usually attracts over 900 participants annually, making it one of the largest annual events in the field of geomechanics worldwide. On October 7th–9th, 2020 the 69th Geomechanics Colloquium/Johann Golser Colloquium will take place virtually this year for the first time, due to the Corona crisis. The tunnel day 2020 was cancelled and will be postponed to 2021.
The sessions topics are:
NATM – highlights and challenges
Service and maintenance works
Geotechnical relevant natural hazards
International large projects
All lectures will be held as a live stream. Lecturers, participants and session chairs are live. Questions of participants can be asked via chat. These are coordinated by the session chairmen and passed on orally to the lecturer, to be able to respond them after the presentation.
