MACCAFERRI CENTRAL EUROPE s.r.o. together with MACCAFERRI DEUTSCHLAND GmbH actively participated in the ISRM Regional Symposium EUROCK 2015 held in conjunction with the 64th Geomechanics Colloquium in Salzburg (October 7 – 10, 2015), the city where the ISRM (International Society for Rock Mechanics) was founded in 1962.
These two meetings are the result of the collaboration of Austrian Society for Geomechanics (OeGG) with International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM).
The Geomechanics Colloquium in Salzburg since its initiation in 1951 has always been a perfect and distinguished meeting place for researchers and practitioners. The success of this concept shows in the continuous meetings over more than 60 years and in the attendance of regularly around 1000 participants.
The meetings provided a unique forum for exchange of experience, presentation and discussion of many topics, during plenary sessions, parallel sessions and workshops focusing on civil structures in rock, mass movements, determination of rock and rock mass properties, monitoring and safety management and many others.
The workshops and courses were led by the most important scientists from Austria, Canada, Germany, Italy, Scotland, Switzerland.
