Conference Aims and Objectives

The ICGMSSR 2018: 20th International Conference on Geotechnical Mapping of Soils and Sedimentary Rocks aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Geotechnical Mapping of Soils and Sedimentary Rocks. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Geotechnical Mapping of Soils and Sedimentary Rocks.

Call for Contributions

All honorable authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Geotechnical Mapping of Soils and Sedimentary Rocks are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research materials.WASET

Federated Conference

Federated conference series is an event that brings together significant number of recurring events; academic conferences, symposia, workshops, special sessions, and plenary talks in the field of science and technology since inception in 1999. Each event may run over any span of time within the conference days.

Conference Proceedings

All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The peer-reviewed conference proceedings are indexed in the International Science Index (ISI), Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar, Zenedo, OpenAIRE, BASE, WorldCAT, Sherpa/RoMEO, and other index databases. The conference abstracts and proceedings book, CD and certificate of presentation will be distributed to participants at the conference registration desk. Impact Factor Indicators.

Special Journal Issues

ICGMSSR 2018 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Geotechnical Mapping of Soils and Sedimentary Rocks. A number of selected high-impact full text papers will also be considered for the special journal issues. All submitted papers will have the opportunity to be considered for this Special Journal Issue. The paper selection will be carried out during the peer review process as well as at the conference presentation stage. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journal or publication. The final decision for paper selection will be made based on peer review reports by the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief jointly. Selected full-text papers will be published online free of charge.
