In line with enhancing the recognition of ISRM members’ high-level achievements, the status of ISRM Fellows acknowledges select individuals who have achieved outstanding accomplishments in the areas of rock mechanics/ rock engineering and have contributed significantly to the work of the ISRM. The title of ISRM Fellow carries a clear Society recognition in addition to that which an individual has attained through his or her own reputation.
The title and position of ISRM Fellow is a lifetime appointment. ISRM Fellows can be called upon as appropriate for ISRM activities, and would be expected to provide reasonable advice namely in the ISRM Advisory Forum, which meets every two years. Thus, the induction of ISRM Fellows creates a group of high-level experts who can provide strong support to the ISRM as necessary.
The initial group of Fellows was inaugurated in the ISRM Beijing Congress in 2011, the second group in 2013, during the ISRM International Symposium in Wroclaw, Poland and the third group during the ISRM Montréal Congress in 2015. Photographs and abbreviated CVs of the fourth group of Fellows being inducted during the 2017 ISRM International Symposium, in Cape Town, South Africa, are included in the following pages–in alphabetical order of surnames.
