International Conference on
"Innovative Solutions for Geotechnical Problems" in Honour of Prof. Erol Guler

2021 / Bogazici University, Istanbul - Turkey
IGS Turkish Chapter
In Honour of Prof. Erol Güler


Dear Colleaques,

As the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to the International Conference on "Innovative Solutions for Geotechnical Problems” in Honour of Prof.Erol Guler (ISGPEG2021)" at the Bogazici University in Istanbul-Turkey. This conference aims to gather a broad range of recent innovations in geotechnical engineering; testing, modelling, monitoring, field applications and risk analysis under the main topics of geotechnical engineering, geosynthetics, geotechnical earthquake engineering, and environmental geotechnics.

During this conference we will be happy to honor the distinguished professor of civil engineering - Prof. Erol Guler which is known as the leading geosynthetics scientist in Turkey. Professor Guler has made valuable contributions to geotechnical engineering in general and to the use of geosynthetics specifically in Turkey and throughout the World. He was instrumented in both research and also in the design of many geotechnical projects.

We are looking forward to seeing academicians, students, manufacturers, practitioners and designers in the geotechnical field at the ISGPEG2021 Conference. We want to extend a special invitation to engineers in general contracting firms, who will widely benefit from the Conference by learning more about the innovative solutions in geotechnical engineering to provide extraordinary financial and technical advantages.

We can guarantee that the ISGPEG2021 Conference will be an opportunity for all who attend to experience a valuable technical program, a magnificent city, and the essence of warm Turkish hospitality. The ISGPEG2021 will be valuable to geotechnical researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of geotechnical engineering.

We are looking forward to meet you in Istanbul to discuss creative and cost effective innovative solutions to geotechnical problems.
