The Geotechnical Society of Edmonton and the Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS), in collaboration with the Canadian National Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CNC), will host GeoEdmonton 2018, the 71st Canadian Geotechnical Conference and the 13th Joint CGS/IAH-CNC Groundwater Conference. The conference will be held at the Shaw Conference Centre.
The theme for GeoEdmonton 2018 is Transportation Geotechnique: Moving Forward. Much of Canada’s prosperity is founded on its vast network of railways, pipelines, highways and waterways. The conference intends to highlight recent achievements in transportation development and their associated geohazards. The technical program will cover a wide range of geotechnical and hydrogeological topics, including specialty sessions that are of local and national relevance. In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, the conference will include a complement of distinguished keynote speakers, high-caliber short courses, social events and technical tours.
