In 2003 the Technical Committee on Earthquake Geotechnics of the IASMGE established a heritage lecture to honor the great engineer and scientist, Professor Kenji Ishihara, a pioneer in geotechnical earthquake engineering. The lecture is given every four years by an internationally renowned researcher–scientist to recognize his contributions in the field.  This was the 4th lecture in the series.  The previous three recipients were:

2004:  Prof. Liam Finn  (Canada)

2007:  Prof.  Izzat Idriss  (USA)
