Technical Committee TC102 of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and Delft University of Technology are pleased to announce the 4th International Symposium on Cone Penetration Testing, CPT’18.

CPT’18 will be held on 21-22 June 2018 in Delft, the Netherlands, following the successful symposia in Linköping, Sweden (1995), Huntington Beach, California (2010) and Las Vegas, Nevada (2014).

CPT’18 will focus on the solution of geotechnical challenges using the cone penetration test (CPT), CPT add-on measurements and companion in-situ penetration tools (such as full flow and free fall penetrometers), with particular emphasis on practical experience and application of research findings. As CPTs play a major role in geo-engineering, CPT’18 will bring together the world’s experts who are working to improve the quality and reduce the difficulties involved. The symposium will be attended by academics, researchers, consultants, practitioners, hardware/software suppliers, certifiers and students. It will be a unique opportunity for meeting people and sharing high-level knowledge.

The CPT’18 organizers encourage to submit contributions on research, achievements and innovations related to:

  • equipment, Testing and Procedures
  • interpretation of Test Results
  • solution of Practical Problems

We are glad to report that over 180 abstracts have been accepted for full paper submission.
