ISC-4 (201) Recife Brazil

The 4th International Site Characterization (1SC-4) will be held 18-21 September 2012 near Recife, Brazil and hosted by Universidade de Pernambuco and the Brasilian Society on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.  The conference is a sequel and follows the successful ISC-1 (1998, Atlanta), ISC-2 (2004, Porto), and ISC-3 (2008, Taipei). 

Our host for ISC-4 is Professor Roberto Quental Coutinho.   For additional details, see:
