- Deadline for abstracts is extended: January 15, 2019

- Nearly 250 abstracts from 28 countries have already been submitted after November 30, 2018 



Since 2010, with the great success of all four consecutive events, CIGOS (Congrès International de Géotechnique - Ouvrages - Structures) has firmly established its international reputation and gradually become an important forum for promoting both academic and professional high-quality exchanges in Geotechnical, Structural and Construction Engineering. 

CIGOS 2019, which will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam from October 31 to November 1, 2019, is co-organized by the Association of Vietnamese Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global) in collaboration with the University of Transport Technology (UTT) and in partnership with the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris-Saclay. This 5th International Conference focuses on the theme of "Innovation for Sustainable Infrastructure", which aims to not only raise awareness of the vital importance of sustainability in infrastructure development but also highlight the essential roles of innovation and technology in helping to plan and build sustainable infrastructure.

CIGOS 2019 will continue the objectives of the previous CIGOS events. It will provide an international platform where researchers, practitioners, policymakers and entrepreneurs could present their recent advances as well as exchange knowledge and experience on various topics related to the theme of “Innovation for Sustainable Infrastructure". Moreover, CIGOS 2019 will also place particular focus on promoting beneficial economic partnership, technological transfers within enterprises as well as on developing the institutional cooperation on research and higher education.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two relevant experts in the international scientific committee. Similar to the previous 2017-Edition, the CIGOS 2019 proceedings will be submitted to the book series “Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering” published by Springer and indexed in Scopus.
