The 3rd International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-3) will be held on 25-29 June 2018 in Trondheim, Norway. It is a specialized conference supported by the ISRM – the International Society for Rock Mechanics and the NBG – the Norwegian National Group of Rock Mechanics. In addition to the traditional topics in rock dynamics, RocDyn-3 will pay special attentions to application topics, such as rockburst, dynamic rock support, seismic management, blasting, percussive drilling, earthquake damage to rock structures, etc. In addition to the technical sessions, two Forums will be organized on topics of “Rockburst and Dynamic Rock Support” and “Rock Dynamics”. Some experts both from mining and civil engineering are invited to give talks, but the Forums are mainly for open discussions. After the conference, technical excursions will be organized to visit subsea tunnels, rock engineering sites, Norwegian geology, etc. One can find more details about the conference in the attached Bulletin No. 2 or on the website (
