The first International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering (ICSMFE) was held at Harvard in 1936. Twenty countries, represented by 206 delegates, attended the conference. In 1948 the second ICSMFE was held in Rotterdam with a total of 596 delegates attending, followed by the third ICSMFE in 1953 in Zurich. In 1997 the Council approved a name change to the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) to reflect more accurately the activities of the Society.
