Young geotechnical engineers from 50 countries converged on Southampton University in September to attend the first International Young Geotechnical Engineers' conference. More than 100 engineers attended the event, which was co-sponsored by the British Geotechnical Association and the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. The young geotechnical engineer concept was started in 1981, but this is the first time it has taken place internationally. Keynote speakers included ISSMGE president Professor Kenji Ishihara from Tokyo's Science University, Norwegian Geotechnical Institute director Dr Suzanne Lacasse and Dr Kerry Rowe of Queen's University, Canada.
