Introduction

The series of International Conference on Unsaturated Soils ("UNSAT" conferences) constitute the main event in the field.

The series started in Paris in 1995 as a natural evolution of the successful Conferences on Expansive Soils, which, for many years provided a forum for researchers and engineers interested in expansive materials, but also in unsaturated soils in a more general sense.

The second, third and fourth UNSAT conferences were held in Beijing (China), Recife 2002 (Brazil) and Carefree Arizona 2006 (USA).

The systematic research being conducted at Universities and Research Institutes and the increasing awareness of the Geotechnical Profession of the relevance of unsaturated soil behaviour in practice has led to substantial advances in fundamental knowledge, testing techniques, computational procedures and prediction methodologies.

UNSAT 2010 will provide the opportunity to take stock of the current state-of-the-art and to set the bases for future advances.
