The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) is pleased to announce that the 59th Rankine Lecture will be given by Professor George Gazetas of the National Technical University of Athens, Greece.

He is Professor of Soil Mechanics and Dynamics in the Department of Civil Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens and has special expertise and research interests in earthquake geotechnical engineering, soil dynamics and foundations.

The Rankine Lecture is widely viewed as the most prestigious of the invited lectures in geotechnics. It commemorates William John Macquorn Rankine, Professor of Civil Engineering at Glasgow University, who was one of the first engineers in the UK to make a significant contribution to soil mechanics. He is best known for his theory for the earth pressure on retaining walls.

Further details will be posted here in due course.
