Iraqi Scientific Society of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering (ISSSMFE) was established by Iraqi pioneer academics and engineers with experience in the fields of geotechnical engineering in 2001. The society is an active member of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and participated in the international conferences and summit meetings organized by ISSMGE. The ISSSMFE provides a forum for academics and engineers working in the geotechnical field to understand soil behavior and solve problems related to the stability and sustainability of structures founded on/within all types of soils. Since its establishment, many symposiums and workshops in geotechnical engineering were organized to achieve the main aims of society. One of these important activities is organizing international conferences on geotechnical engineering.
