The 9th Conference on the Mechanical Behavior of Salt (SaltMech IX) will take place from September 12 – 14, 2018 at the BGR in Hannover, Germany.
The conference will be organised jointly by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) Hannover, the Institute of Geomechanics (IfG) Leipzig and the Technical University of Clausthal (TUC).
