The ISRM Young Members’ Seminar (YMS) Series is a new ISRM Young Members Group initiative. It consists of a series of virtual events, with the goal of providing a global platform for ISRM young members to share knowledge, experiences, and ideas. More details on the YMS are available in the December 2021 ISRM Newsletter.

The 1st ISRM Young Members’ Seminar will take place on 26 January, at 17:00 GMT with two speakers from Europe:

    Topic: Modeling of the long term behavior of the damaged zone by fracturing around the underground storage works in argilites
  • Alessandra Insana (Research assistant at Politecnico di Torino, Italy)
    Topic: Challenges in the Lyon-Turin base tunnel project

You can join using the Zoom link created for each Seminar and you can participate in the question and answers period. The Seminars will also be live-streamed to the ISRM YM's YouTube channel, where they will be stored. Full information is available in the leaflet of the 1st YMS Seminar

In February and March, we will have speakers from Asia and Latin America. Stay tuned for more details from the YMS organising committee.
