The Association of Geohazard Professionals (AGHP) was created to support the development of standards, specifications, and best practices concerning the design and implementation of geohazard-related technologies and products; and to support and provide education to the Geohazard Community and those it serves. Manufacturers, engineers, agency personnel, contractors and all others interacting with geohazards design, installation and implementation are invited to join the association and contribute to the achievement of our goals.
Field Monitoring in Geomechanics deals with assessing the performance of engineering structures using instrumentation and other related information. The applications include dams and embankments, structures and foundations, transport infrastructure including tunnels and other underground openings, open cut and underground mines, natural slopes, land reclamation, repositories for industrial or nuclear waste and offshore structures.
The principal aims of TC220 are:
– To organise specialty conferences, symposiums, workshops and short courses dedicated to the subject of field monitoring in geomechanics. To encourage the involvement of a wide range of geo-professionals in these events.
– To encourage the preparation of keynote lectures, state-of-the-art lectures including on new technologies, general reports for conferences organised by the International Society, regional conferences and conferences organized by Member Societies.
– To promote the inclusion of structural and geotechnical monitoring in universities and at conferences and meetings of other international bodies, thereby encouraging a common culture of learning through field monitoring.
TC220 will provide fora for all of those involved in the use of field instrumentation, such as manufacturers, installers, design consultants and owner/operators, to improve collective knowledge, support decision making and foster a common culture. This will be done mainly through FMGM Symposia and the website, but also by encouraging universities to include monitoring in curricula and by increasing field monitoring content at conferences and meetings of other international bodies.
FMGM is an international symposium held every four years since 1977. TC220 will ensure that this tradition continues and will encourage ISSMGE members to participate in future FMGM Symposia.

The Italian Geotechnical Association was founded in Milan on December 19, 1947, by a group of scholars, university professors, well-known professionals, and entrepreneurs in the civil engineering sector. The association’s main purpose has always been to promote geotechnical culture in the scientific and professional fields. The association has constantly increased its membership, currently totaling around 650, including 28 collective members. To achieve its statutory purpose, the association has been actively involved in drafting guidelines and recommendations and organizing national and international conferences, study days, courses, and seminars on various aspects of geotechnics. These include soil mechanics, rock mechanics and engineering, site and laboratory investigations, foundation engineering, earthworks, underground constructions, soil and rock consolidation and improvement, retaining structures, engineering problems related to soil-structure interaction, environmental geotechnics (such as landfills and contaminated sites), hydrogeological risk mitigation, slope stability, geosynthetic applications, and geotechnical aspects of seismic engineering. The association holds a traditional triennial National Geotechnical Conference, with high-quality scientific and technical general reports, panel reports, and roundtables. The conference provides an opportunity to discuss a theme related to geotechnical engineering. The AGI has also organized successful international scientific events such as symposiums, conferences, and workshops. Finally, the AGI has instituted an annual conference named after Arrigo Croce, a prominent scholar and the first Italian professor of Geotechnics, which aims to bridge the gap between research advances and established design and construction practices.
