Geo-Institute seeking volunteers to review conference papers

News | June 3, 2022 | By:

The Geo-Institute of ASCE is calling for volunteers to review review technical papers submitted to the Geo-Congress 2023 and Geo-Risk 2023 conferences.

Serving as a reviewer allows professionals to play a critical role in ensuring the papers published in the conference Proceedings adhere to the quality standards of a Geotechnical Special Publication (GSP). The goal is to publish and present papers of high professional and scientific quality that will have permanent value for geotechnical engineers.

Special topics for Geo-Congress 2023:

  • Sustainable Design, Equity, and Social Justice: Environmental, Economic, and Societal aspects of sustainability incorporated into geotechnical engineering
  • Spatially Distributed Infrastructure: Quantifying regional resilience of roads, bridges, rail, airports, water, power
  • Ports and Harbors: Dredging, retention systems, liquefaction, crane facilities, deep foundations
  • Data, Remote Sensing, and Cloud Computing: Big data, data analytics, data integration, GIS
  • Virtual / Mixed Reality: Enhanced methods for visualization and public communication
  • Carbon Footprint of Construction: Engineering Solutions to reduce the carbon footprint in construction
  • Geotechnical Challenges on Major Projects: Sustainability and resilience considerations for current and long-term conditions (e.g., incorporating solar, future expansions)
  • Landslide Hazards: Characterization and mitigation of landslides
  • Wildfire Hazards: Geotechnical aspects of wildfires and associated debris flows
  • Twenty Eight by 28: Preparing for 2028 Olympic Games
  • Shake and Bake: Earthquakes, drought, and multi-hazard engineering

For Geo-Risk 2023, chairs will be specifically looking for reviewers with expertise in the following conference topics:

  • Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning in Geo-Engineering
  • Reliability and Risk Assessment of Existing Geotechnical Infrastructure
  • Risk and Reliability in Rock Engineering
  • Advances on Probabilistic Methods for Resilient Geotechnical Infrastructure
  • Risk‐Based Approaches in Assessing Geohazards and Extreme Events
  • Modeling Georisk in Construction
  • Integrated Studies for De‐Risking Projects: Geology, Geophysics, Geotechnical and Geomatics
  • State‐of‐Practice in Modeling Spatial Variability
  • Uncertainty Characterization of Geotechnical and Geological Models
  • Best Practices of Risk Assessment and Management in Offshore Projects
  • Advances in Reliability-Based Design and Risk- Based Code Development
  • Practice of Risk Assessment and Management in Geo‐ Engineering
  • Georisk in Climate Change, Sustainability, and Decarbonization
  • Georisk in Engineering Education
