Welcome to the Fourth International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-4).

The Fourth International Conference on Rock Dynamics and Applications (RocDyn-4) will be hosted in Melbourne, Australia on 26-28 October 2020. RocDyn-4 is to be organised by Monash University of Australia, in association with Southeast University of China, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, and other universities and institutes around the world. The organisers of RocDyn-4 would like to welcome researchers and engineers of the rock mechanics and rock engineering community to Melbourne in 2020 to participate the meetings and the discussions on rock dynamics and applications.

RocDyn-4 conference covers various topics related to rock dynamics and engineering applications, highlighting the innovations in scientific research, technology development, and engineering solution. The topics can range from mathematical and analytical methods, micromechanics constitutive relations, fracture dynamics, rate dependent properties, continuum and discontinuum numerical modelling, laboratory techniques, testing and observation, field measurements techniques, instrumentation and monitoring of dynamic response, multi-scale and multi-physics modelling, earthquake and induced seismology, rock burst monitoring and control, explosion and blasting control, landslide and slope safety, rock block movement and impact structure design, rock fragmentation and fracturing, mechanised rock excavation, support of rock tunnels and caverns under earthquake and other dynamic loads.

On behalf of RocDyn-4 organisers, we look forward to meeting scientists and engineers working on rock dynamic research and practice in Melbourne, to share and to cooperate, with a common aim to advance rock dynamics, from research to engineering.
