Prof. Lyesse Laloui’s keynote lecture is entitled “Subsurface Energy Applications and the Importance of Coupled Processes in Shales”, and will be delivered at the Decovalex scientific symposium on Coupled Processes in Radioactive Waste Disposal and Subsurface Engineering Applications, taking place on the 4th and 5th of November 2019 in Brugg, AG, Switzerland.

Decovalex Symposium targets Coupled Processes in Radioactive Waste Disposal and Subsurface Engineering Applications, and will take place on November 4-5, 2019 in Brugg, AG, Switzerland.

Participants will discuss all aspects of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes in geological systems as they affect performance and safety assessment of radioactive waste disposal and other subsurface engineering processes, including geothermal exploration, geological carbon sequestration, energy storage, and oil and gas production. This open symposium will feature internationally recognized keynote speakers and researchers focusing on coupled processes, including computational methods, lab experiments, and in situ tests.
