The 1st International Symposium on Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions - A Joint Conference with the 10th SHAHUNIANTS Lecture ( TRANSOILCOLD2013 )

      Cold regions cover 50% of the world's total land area. All transportation infrastructures in cold regions face great technical challenges due to ground freeze-thaw or permafrost degradation. New transportation infrastructure on embankments, such as high-speed railways on slab tracks or highways, requires high geometry standards. In China, the Qinghai-Tibet Railway has been in operation for more than 6 years but now faces issues due to permafrost degradation. More challenging technical problems will arise as more transportation infrastructure, such as highways, is being planned and/or constructed in Northwest and Northeastern China, Russia as well as the North America.

      The First International Symposium on Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions - a joint conference with the 10th Shahuniants Lecture aims to provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in the transportation community to share the latest research advances and experiences in the construction of transportation infrastructure in cold regions. The Shahuniants Lecture has been given regularly among Russian scientists for many years and this is the first time to have its abroad section outside of Russia.

      Xining City is the capital of the Qinghai province, and it is the beginning of the Qinghai-Tibet railway and the National Highway 109. The operation headquarter of the Qinghai-Tibet railway is also located in this city.
