Keynote lecture title:Recent developments in laboratory testing of geomaterials, with emphasis on imaging

With a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Rome, since 1998 Cino Viggiani has been working in Laboratoire 3SR and he is a Professor at Université Grenoble Alpes. His research involves experimental investigations as well as theoretical and numerical modeling of the behavior of geomaterials, including localized failure and hydro-mechanical coupling. Applications are principally in geoenvironmental, petroleum, and civil engineering. Cino's recent research has been mostly focused on advanced experimental geomechanics, particularly imaging. He has supervised 50 MSc and 31 PhD students, published 120+ journal papers, and delivered about 25 invited and keynote lectures worldwide. He has served in various National and International Research Boards, including the ISSMGE and the French CNRS, to name a few. Since 2017 he is the president of the European Association ALERT-Geomaterials.
