The conference topics are related to constitutive modelling of creep mechanisms in natural soils and granular media on the continuum and particulate level, as well as the application of those models in real world boundary value problems. Finally, a session is devoted to cover other engineering materials and states, such as frozen soil, steel or polymers. The following key topics are identified:

  • Constitutive modelling of creep and deformations in geomaterials
  • Numerical analysis of creep in geotechnical engineering
  • Physics of creep in granular media
  • Creep in other materials


The following keynotes speakers have been confirmed to give a keynote presentation:

  • Prof. Efraín Ovando-Shelley (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico)
  • Prof. Itai Einav (The University of Sydney, Australia)
  • Prof. Pierre-Yves Hicher (École Centrale de Nantes, France)
  • Prof. Kenneth Runesson (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden)
