5th International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics 2024 issues call for abstracts

News | June 15, 2023 | By:

The 5th International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics – Ground Improvement and Evolving Technologies for Sustainable Transport Structure – will be held November 22-24, 2024 in Sydney, Australia. A call for abstracts is now open until June 30, 2023. The organizing committee invites the submission of abstracts for consideration as oral or poster presentations. For more information visit here.

The conference will focus on the current challenges associated with transport infrastructure development and will act as a platform to disseminate the most recent research and field advances to the engineering community. Presentations from leading experts, professionals, and industry specialists will display technical advances and experience related to transport infrastructure.

Keynote and invited lectures from world-renowned experts in transport infrastructure will add value to the technical skills of all participants. The conference will act as a platform for delegates to share the issues, knowledge transfer and to learn the impact of emerging and sustainable technologies.

The program will feature presentations from the following themes:

Mechanistic-empirical design (road, railways, airfields, waterways and harbor facilities);

Optimized characteristics of geomaterials (e.g. hydraulically bound materials and asphalt mixtures);

Recycled materials in road and rail embankments and sub-structural layers;

Sustainability in transportation geotechnics;

Fundamentals of road and rail geotechnics;

Offshore soil improvement, port development and harbour geotechnics;

Dynamics of transportation infrastructure and numerical modeling;

Soft subgrade instability including yielding and fluidization (experimental and numerical);

Behavior of airfields and pavement structures;

Transition zones for railways;

Applied ground improvement methods for transportation infrastructure;

Stabilization and reinforcement of geomaterials and waste materials;

Geosynthetics in transportation applications;

Geotechnics in underground transportation including tunnels;

Use of rigid inclusions and retaining structures for enhanced stability;

Pile-supported transport infrastructure;

Geotechnical-seismic vulnerability of transportation infrastructures;

Subsurface sensing for transportation infrastructure;

Intelligent construction in earthworks technology and management;

Climatic effects on the behavioral transformation of geomaterials;

Properties and behavior of unsaturated subgrade and compacted fills;

Slope stability and risk management in relation to transport corridors;

Transport asset management;

and planning and design of mega transport projects.

The following awards will also be presented at the conference:

Best THEMATIC Paper Award

ISSMGE Bright Spark Award – for a presenting author who must be aged 36 or under on the last day of the conference

Best Young Professional Engineer Paper Award – For A Practitioner

Best Poster Award
