Malaysia-Indonesia Rock Engineering Symposium 

MIRES 2020

Indonesian Rock Mechanics Society (IRMS) and Society for Engineering Geology and Rock Mechanics Malaysia (SEGRM) are proud to present the first Malaysia-Indonesia Rock Engineering Symposium (MIRES) 2020. The joint symposium is aimed at promoting knowledge sharing and addressing critical issues in the field of rock engineering, with theme:

 

"Rock Never Lies"

BACKGROUND

 

Being located in the circum-Pacific belt and intense weathering effect under humid tropical climate, both Indonesia and Malaysia offer unique and challenging issues for research and knowledge advancement in rock engineering field. Understanding of the related issues is essential for future development of both countries, particularly in designing and constructing rock engineering structures. Comprehensive knowledge on the theoretical and practical aspects is of utmost important and as such, activities like continuous learning and collaborative research among academicians and practicing engineers are the viable venues for comprehending and determining the appropriate approaches in dealing with any critical issues.

Indonesian Rock Mechanics Society (IRMS) and Society for Engineering Geology and Rock Mechanics Malaysia (SEGRM) are proud to present the first Malaysia-Indonesia Rock Engineering Symposium (MIRES) 2020. The joint symposium is aimed at promoting knowledge sharing and addressing critical issues in the field of rock engineering. The synergy of academicians and participation from various sectors will certainly facilitate in achieving the objectives this remarkable event.

We are optimistic that this symposium will lead to collaborations work among the participants in providing the appropriate solutions for the respective issues related to this engineering field. Continuous learning and keeping abreast of new developments and advancements are vital for gaining in-depth understanding of these complex geological materials. Despite of the elements of risk and uncertainty, we strongly believed that the relevant knowledge acquired will facilitate us in predicting the intricate behaviors and complex engineering properties of this important construction materials. For it goes without saying that rock never lies.
