High point of anniversary celebrations

Imperial's predictions symposium is one of the highlights of the college's Geotechnics in the New Millennium event which runs from 15-17 September to mark the 50th anniversary of the Soil Mechanics DIC/MSc.

The three day symposium, which is open to all, will celebrate the achievements of the past 50 years and will review the state-of-the-art in analytical methods, laboratory and field techniques and also in postgraduate education. Other highlights include the predictions symposium and a dinner on 16 September

The event coincides with new staff appointments and the opening of the department's Bishop research laboratory. International experts (including 10 former Rankine lecturers), mid-career consultants and academics and recent PhD and MSc graduates (including Cooling Prize winners) are expected to attend.

As well as expert keynote addresses and specialist briefings, two intentionally controversial propositions will be debated. Speculation on the future of geotechnics and on the practical impact of research will be a central theme. Further information can be found at :
