The Transportation Geotechnics International Conference series began under the auspices of ISSMGE-TC3 and was initiated in 2008 at the University of Nottingham, UK, as an International event designed to address the growing requirements of infrastructure for societies.
The 2nd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics took place in 2012, at Sapporo, Japan, under the ISSMGE-TC202 that follows the TC3 activities for the period 2009-2013. To continue the success of these conferences and the output of ISSMGE-TC202, the 3rd was scheduled for 2016, at Guimarães, Portugal. Following the previous one, the challenges addressed by this conference will include a better understanding of the interactions of geotechnics on roads, rails, airports, harbours and other ground transportation infrastructure with the goal of providing safe, economic, environmental, reliable and sustainable infrastructures.
The 3rd ICTG will be composed of workshops and several types of sessions (including one dedicated to Young Transportations Geotechnics Engineers), as well as a technical exhibition, for a better dissemination of findings and best practices. A special attention will be paid to the publication of all the peer review papers that will be submited to be indexed by Scopus and ISI Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index. On behalf of the organizing committee I am honoured to invite you to the 3rd ICTG in the City of Guimarães, UNESCO World Heritage (September 4-7, 2016).
