2019 will be a special year for the ISRM South America National Groups when the region welcomes the ISRM family for its 14th Congress. Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay will be the host countries for the event that is to be held in Foz do Iguassu, city that marks the common border amongst these countries.
The central theme of the Congress is Rock Mechanics for Natural Resources and Infrastructure Development, a theme much relevant and needed for the current stage of most of the countries. All ISRM regions are invited to share their experience in the theme. The technical program is being established by an International Scientific Committee in order to attract different categories of geotechnical professionals as academics, consultants, contractors, public companies and should incorporate issues of ISRM Technical Commissions.
