19th International Conference - ICSMGE
19th International Conference - ICSMGE
17.09.2017 - 22.09.2017
Coex (Convention and Exhibition Center) - Seoul


The theme of the 19th ICSMGE is “Unearth the Future, Connect Beyond”. It is about bridging the gaps between past and future, between young and senior engineers, and between developing and developed nations among others. Making these connections is the key to greater innovations. The logo for the 19th ICSMGE symbolizes our vision where the  colours represent how well and harmoniously living organisms, groundwater and strata coexist- the way we hope different regions can coexist in harmony- while the waves represent the Han River, which is the heart of Korea’s economic growth.

The 19th ICSMGE will prepare various programs, including a Plenary Session, Parallel Sessions, ISSMGE Honour Lectures, iYGEC, Technical visits, and exhibitions. The Local Organizing Committee would like to invite you all and share our experiences with member societies. We are ready to reach out and listen to various and valuable voices from member societies and are willing to reflect their wishes into the program, serving as a rainbow bridge between member societies in ISSMGE and beyond.
