Call for Papers: CPT'14 Symposium



The 3rd International Symposium on Cone Penetration Testing (CPT’14) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA in May, 2014: www.cpt14.com Technical Committee TC-102 of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE: www.webforum.com/tc16) in collaboration with California State Polytechnic University are pleased to announce the 3rd International Symposium on Cone Penetration Testing, CPT'14. This event will build on the success of CPT'95 and CPT'10 that were held respectively in Linkoping, Sweden in 1995 and Huntington Beach, California in 2010: www.cpt10.com


The theme of the Symposium is the solution of geotechnical and geo-environmental problems using the Cone Penetration Test (CPT). Particular emphasis will be placed on the exchange of practical experience and the application of research results through keynote lectures and panel lead discussion sessions. The technical and social program will provide an opportunity to meet new contacts and an exchange of ideas and experience.

Call for Papers/Abstracts

The main theme of CPT’14 is the solution of geotechnical problems using the CPT, with particular emphasis on practical experience and application of research results. You are invited to submit a 1-page abstract on one of the CPT’14 Symposium main themes:

1. Equipment, testing and procedures

Any aspect regarding CPT equipment, testing and procedures including standards, new

equipment, testing techniques and procedures, innovative aspects including T-bar testing.

2. Interpretation of test results

Any aspect of interpretation from theoretical to empirical, including case histories.

3. Solution of practical problems

Any aspect of applications of CPT results, including shallow and deep foundations,

embankments, slopes, geoenvironmental and seismic design.


Please submit your abstract to:

P.K. Robertson at: probertson@greggdrilling.com

Abstracts should be no more than 1-page (approx. 500 words) and contain the title, authors, and email contact address. The lead author will receive a confirmation of receipt of abstract by return email and confirmation of acceptance by mid-June, 2013
