In view of Prof. Ziegler's leaving quite a long time ago and the still insecure Corona situation, we have decided with a heavy heart to finally cancel the event.
We sincerely wish him and the numerous invited guests, many of whom have also asked again and again, all the best!
2nd Forum Tunneling event postponed
The initially postponed to 18.06.2021.
2nd Forum Tunneling as "farewell performance" for Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Ziegler at RWTH Aachen University
cannot take place on this date due to Corona.
When the Corona pandemic hit us last spring, we were still full of hope that the new edition of our "Forum Tunnelbau", originally planned for September 2020, could at least take place on June 18, 2021. Since the event is primarily dedicated to the farewell of Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Ziegler, who after more than 20 years at the Chair of Geotechnical Engineering in Civil Engineering and Institute of Foundation Engineering, Soil Mechanics, Rock Mechanics and Hydraulic Engineering at RWTH Aachen University has gone into well-deserved retirement, this should of course take place in a personal setting. Unfortunately, the virus has put a spoke in our wheel for this as well, so it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to postpone the forum once again.
In view of the still very uncertain situation, we do not want to announce a new date at this point in time (which might not be able to be kept after all), but "only" cancel the 18.6. for the time being and ask for some patience until we can invite you personally to Aachen again with a clear conscience!
Therefore, please watch out for information from us and/or have a look at our new website www.gut.rwth-aachen.de from time to time. We would also like to take this opportunity to inform you about the recent name change of our institute, GiB becomes GUT: Geomechanics and Subsurface Engineering.
