ISRM International Symposium - EUROCK 2016Rock Mechanics & Rock Engineering: From the Past to the Future
The symposium intends to cover all aspects of rock mechanics and rock engineering from theories to engineering practices, emphasizing the future direction of rock engineering technologies. The symposium program contains eight keynote lectures, the 2016 ISRM Franklin Lecture, the 2016 ISRM Rocha Medal Lecture, and 204 papers which were reviewed by the members of the International Scientific and Advisory Committees, who paid prime attention to their eligibility for publication in the Symposium Proceedings and presentation in the Symposium.
This event will be an excellent opportunity to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences in various areas of the rock mechanics and rock engineering, as well as to visit many historical sites including old and modern rock structures caved in the soft tuffs of Cappadocia.
