The organizing committee of the 9th International Congress on Environmental Geotechnics (ICEG) is pleased to announce that selected papers that have been submitted to the conference will be invited for submission to two prestigious journals of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
In coordination with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Journal of Hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste (JHTRW), the committee will plan to incorporate on the order of 10 to 15 novel conference papers into a Special Issue for the 9 ICEG conference. Practice papers and/or case studies are welcome, and the paper length requirements can be adjusted on merit basis by the Guest Editor. The invited papers will be selected based on a review of the abstracts and/or conference papers to fit with the themes of the journal. The papers will then be expanded for the Special Issue, but subject to the full peer review process of the journal to ensure innovation and quality.
The Guest Editor of the Special Issue will be Dennis Grubb, PHD, PE, F.ASCE who is an editorial member for ASCE JHTRW and 9 ICEG committee member.
Papers focusing on the practice of geoenvironmental engineering and Case Histories will be invited to the ISSMGE International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories.
