Geoenvironmental engineering and behaviour of unsaturated soils


Soil dynamics and earthquake geotechnical engineering


Stability of earth and earth retaining structures


Rock engineering, tunneling and underground constructions


Analytical and numerical modeling in geomechanics


Geohazards: Analysis, mitigation and management


Forensic investigations and case histories


Reliability in geotechnical engineering


Special topics: Offshore geotechnics, remote sensing and GIS, geotechnical education, Codes & standards

To begin with, prepare the one-page abstract in a new sheet without any formatting. This shall include the title, author
names, affiliations, abstract text, etc. It shall also have a list of keywords (not less than 3 and not more than 5) at the end.
The abstract can have one table, or one figure. The total number of words in the abstract shall be limited to 400. If table or
figure is included, the number of words shall suitably be reduced.
This template can then be used for formatting the abstract. Save this template as a new document file with the name as
described above. Delete all the content. Copy and paste your entire unformatted material into the blank template.
Keep the cursor at any place within the title. Go to Styles. Then click the style IGC2016-Title. It will be formatted as title.
Then keep the cursor anywhere over the author name. Select the style IGC2016-author. Formatting can be completed by
placing the cursor at appropriate locations and selecting the appropriate style. Do not select the entire title, or name or text
while formatting. You may have to individually format later the symbols, subscripts, superscripts, etc.
