Why Attend

For the first time, the ASCE Geo-Institute will be organizing its annual Geo-Congress around the theme of case histories. Following Prof. Prakash’s series of acclaimed international conferences, the 2019 Geo-Congress will be the Eighth International Conference on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering, and will bring together researchers, practitioners, students and policy makers from around the globe to share their geo-accomplishments and carry on the tradition of using case histories to cultivate engineering judgment as espoused by Terzaghi, Peck, Prakash, and so many other legendary geoengineers.
