INVITATION 

You are invited to reunite with your colleagues on solid bedrock at the EUROCK 2022 - Rock and Fracture Mechanics in Rock Engineering and Mining in Espoo, Helsinki-region, Finland, 12 to 15 September 2022. The conference themes include but are not limited to latest advances in rock mechanics, interesting mining and rock engineering cases, and engineering education. The call for papers is now open.

The conference will feature two main tracks: the scientific track and the industrial track. The presentations will be arranged in general and parallel sessions over two days. There will be short courses and workshops on the day preceding the conference and excursions to sites of interest on the day following the conference.  

Should the COVID-19 situation allow, the conference will be held in the Dipoli conference center in Espoo near the Aalto University campus in the Helsinki region. The touristic city of Helsinki will be at your disposal with its underground and above ground marvels. Virtual participation with networking possibilities may be offered in parallel. 

 

See you in Finland in 2022!
