a) Development of design codes, guidance, policy etc

b) Planning, site classification and investigation

c) Design and construction of natural disaster mitigation solutions

d) Design and construction of structures / infrastructure that are resilient to natural disasters

e) Project and case histories

f) Field and laboratory testing

g) Advance in design and analysis methods

h) Research and development


The Geotechnical Engineering Technical Division (GETD), IEM invites engineers registered with IEM to submit a suitable abstract and a brief CV for the HKIE-IEM-CIE Tripartite Seminar. Three candidates will be selected to represent IEM to present technical papers in this seminar. The selection process will be based on abstracts submitted, and decision made by the Committee of the GETD will be final. 

The selected candidates will be provided with two nights’ accommodation at the hotel where the seminar is to be held and waived of the seminar registration fee. Transportation costs for attending the seminar for the candidates will be reimbursed by IEM.
