 The last decades have seen tremendous development of civil infrastructure around the world. It has become increasingly important to improve the sustainability of geotechnical systems for harmonious development of man and nature. For this purpose, researchers in the area of soil dynamics and geotechnical engineering are playing an active role to overcome numerous challenges and have made significant achievements.

This symposium is the first of a series of symposiums on soil dynamics and geotechnical sustainability. The theme of the symposium focuses on the challenges and opportunities in soil dynamics for geotechnical sustainability and resilience. The symposium will provide a forum for researchers and engineers in different areas to meet and share new ideas, achievements, experiences and lessons through presentations and discussions. To achieve this goal, prominent scholars, researchers and engineers around the world will be invited. All accepted submissions will be presented and open discussions on challenging topics will be facilitated in the symposium.
