Call for session proposals/topics
The call for session proposals is the opportunity to be a session chair for a topic during technical session presentations at Geotechnical Frontiers 2017.

Multiple sessions with a related theme are also possible. Submissions should include a description of the proposed topic, and any plans outside of the call for abstracts for soliciting papers.
All abstracts and papers (including invited papers) are subject to the official Geotechnical Frontiers review process.
Call for short course proposals
Geotechnical Frontiers 2017 is committed to providing continuing education opportunities for participants. Short courses will be eight hours in length and will be held on Sunday, March 12, 2017.
Proposals should include the course title, a description of the course with a summary of its learning objectives, and a list of instructors.
Call for training lectures
One of the goals of Geotechnical Frontiers 2017 is to offer practical, targeted training opportunities for attendees who are not interested in the technical paper programs. Training lectures will be 90 minutes in length, featuring a focus topic. When appropriate, these sessions may be repeated during the program.
Proposals should include the title, and a description of the lecture with a summary of its learning objectives.
Submit proposals online.
