Infrastructure development in Indonesia experienced rapid acceleration starting in 2015. Breakthroughs were made by many parties to support the acceleration of development. Work methods, technologies and research that have the potential to be developed have the opportunity to be applied while adhering to the precautionary principle and under strict evaluation. SNI Geotechnical 8460:2017 which was born in 2017 is a form of HATTI's support for this effort. This period is a golden period where various theories get a stage to be put into practice.
In 2020 the wave of COVID-19 hit the world which directly had a negative impact on development in Indonesia. Various development plans that have not been implemented have been rescheduled. However, many other works have been or are nearing completion. In this period there is a positive side that we can take, we all have time to take a breath and conduct an in-depth evaluation of what has been done in the previous period. Good applications are still used while those that still have shortcomings can be evaluated and improved. This evaluation will be very useful to support sustainable infrastructure development.
PIT HATTI XXVI will invite keynote speakers that matched this year's theme, GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING TO SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT: FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE. Highlighting topics that support sustainable development such as ground improvement, unsaturated soil mechanics, earthquake engineering, deep excavation, tunneling, geotechnical instrumentation and other topics.
This year, PIT HATTI XXVI, invites all HATTI members and colleagues to write papers and selected papers will be published for FREE in journals with good reputations such as Journal of Geo-Engineering (Scopus Index), Journal of Civil Engineering Forum (JCEF SINTA 2), Indonesian Geotechnical Journal (HATTI Journal) and other journals that we will collaborate with later.
