Proceedings of Conference Papers

 Conference reports that have been approved by the Program Committee will be recommended for publication in the international “Journal of Rock Mechanics & Geotechnical Engineering”, indexed by Scopus and WoS. In addition, the publication of reports is possible in the journal “E3S Web of Conferences”, also indexed by the Scopus and WoS. Texts of reports in hardcopy (1 pic) and e-copy (.docx, .doc, .pdf) should be submitted both before the last day of the Conference. The rules for submitting articles are set out on the journal’s sites https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-rock-mechanics-and-geotechnical-engineering/, https://www.e3s-conferences.org/. Payment for the publication, if necessary, is made at the expense of the authors of the report.

Deadline for submission of reports is August 1, 2019. Please, e-mail the e-copy to conf_ru_cn@mail.ru.


Participation in conference events

There are some event planned during the Conference, including a visit to the Laboratory on “Geomechanics of Highly Compressed Rock & Rock Massifs” FEFU, a visit to a deep Geodynamic Test Ground at the Nikolayevsky mine, Dalnegorsk City and a cultural program.

Participation in all events is at the expense of participants and it is not included in the registration fee. A visit to the Laboratory does not require any expenses; visit the geodynamic test ground is including flight Vladivostok City – Dalnegorsk City in the business trip plan and back by flight or by bus with accommodation in a hotel. Details of the trip and the program will be sent to all comers.

The cultural program includes visiting memorials of Vladivostok (Vladivostok Fortress, City Aquarium, Opera and Ballet Theater, boat trips, etc.).
