Following the unprecedented changes in our personal and professional lives due to Covid-19 and after careful consideration and evaluation of the risks and alternatives, the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering Education (GEE 2020), in consultation with paper authors and presenters, opted for a "Virtual Conference" with features that can become in the future staples of regular conferences.
The online conference was streamed from Athens from June 23 to 25 2020 and included:
- the 2nd John Burland Lecture, delivered by Mark Jaksa
- two keynote lectures, delivered by Susan Ambrose and Rodrigo Salgado
- three invited lectures, delivered by Ton de Jong, Minna Karstunen and Vassilia Christidou
- 7 thematic sessions, including 23 original research papers, as well as 2 panel discussions that can be accessed in the GEE2020 GeoWorld group
