A special series of keynote lectures were established by TC 102/TC 16 circa 2002 in the name of Professor James K. Mitchell (Univ. of California Berkeley and Virginia Tech) who was an early leader in the research areas of in-situ testing and site characterization, as well as other geotechnical topics involving ground modification, geoenvironmental concerns, micromechanics, geochemistry, and soil behavior.
The TC102 chooses a special lecturer every 2 years and the keynote is presented at a major conference or symposium. The technical paper is published along with the proceedings, as well as in a special agreement, is also published in the international journal: Geomechanics and Geoengineering (Taylor & Francis Group, London). To date, there have been 7 JKM lectures and the next one will be held during ICSMGE in Seoul, South Korea. Visit James K. Mitchell Lectures Series TC102 webpage.
