Invitation from the Conference Co-Chairs

The Program Committee cordially invites you to attend Geo-Congress 2019: The Eighth International Conference on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering, which will be held March 24–27, 2019.

From the early days of modern geotechnical engineering, sharing field experiences of the performance of geostructures – dams, foundations, tunnels, landfills – in the form of case histories has driven the advancement of knowledge for the geo-profession. Geo-Congress 2019 will continue this tradition and feature experiences and observations from hundreds of geoengineering projects, including recent “MegaProjects.” The conference will include a wide range of informative technical and panel sessions, short courses, and workshops. Join us in Philadelphia to celebrate our geo-accomplishments!

  • Scott M. Olson, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign
  • Allen Cadden, P.E., D.GE, F.ASCE, Schnabel Engineering
