Call for Abstracts OPEN: Geo-Risk 2017 and Grouting 2017 / Abstracts due in May, 2016

The G-I Risk Assessment and Management Technical Committee (RAM) of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Geotechnical Safety Network (GEOSNet) announce Geo-Risk 2017: Geotechnical Risk from Theory to Practice, which will be held at the Grand Hyatt Denver in Denver, Colorado on June 4 – 6, 2017. The conference will include a wide range of knowledge-enhancing technical sessions, short courses, workshops and software demonstrations. Several hundred U.S. and international participants from industry, academia, and government agencies are expected to attend.

The Geo-Risk 2017 Program Committee invites you to submit your abstracts now, and join them next June in the vibrant city of Denver to explore the latest research advances and engineering-practice innovations with a focus on the use of probabilistic and risk methodologies in geotechnical engineering.

Learn more about the conference and download a pdf copy of the full Call for Abstracts.

Submit your abstracts via the online paper submission system (MIRA) by May 11, 2016.

All submitted technical papers will be peer-reviewed and, if accepted, published as part of the conference Proceedings, which will be a Geotechnical Special Publication (GSP). Papers published in a GSP are indexed in the Civil Engineering database, Google Scholar, and similar databases. Submissions are encouraged from practitioners, educators, researchers, geotechnical engineers, geoprofessionals, firm owners, and others.


In a departure from past Geo-Institute practice, authors are requested to submit their abstracts to track-level topics rather than single sub-topics. The program committee will review all submissions and group them into appropriate sub-topic sessions based on their content.

TRACK A/ Practice of Risk Assessment and Management (in all fields of geoengineering)
TRACK B/ Geohazards (such as landslides, slope failures, dams and levees, earthquakes, and geoenvironmental hazards including those caused by human activity)
TRACK C/ Reliability- and Risk-Based Code Developments
TRACK D/ Advances in Geotechnical Reliability Based Design
TRACK E/ Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) Developments and Applications
TRACK F/ Acceptable Risk and Risk Communication (including applications to insurance and financial decision-making)
TRACK G/ Impact of Spatial Variability and Probabilistic Site Characterization
TRACK H/ Uncertainty Relating to Geotechnical Properties, Models, and Testing Methods
TRACK I/ Advances in the Applications of Theory and Practice of Statistics and Probability in Geoengineering
TRACK J/ Emerging Topics

GeoMEast2017 Int’l Conf., Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, July 15-19, 2017 • Call for Abstracts

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to submit papers for the GeoMEast2017 International Conference [http://www.geomeast2017.org/] to be held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from July 15 to 19, 2017. This Sustainable Civil Infrastructures conference is endorsed by a number of leading national and international professional organizations. The conference First Announcement could be downloaded from here: http://www.geomeast2017.org/En/62/Details.aspx.

We are still open for abstracts submission, if you have not submitted your abstracts yet, you can do it now through the submission system: https://www.editorialmanager.com/suci . Looking forward to welcoming you to Sharm El-Sheikh!

Key attractions of GeoMEast 2017:

• About 200 presentations from 30+ countries
• Main Keynotes and Technical Meetings
• Workshops and Technical Trips
• Social/networking program and exhibits
• A unique opportunity to learn about Sustainable Civil Infrastructures around the world

Recent rapid construction in Egypt and the Middle East has provided great opportunities for structural, bridge, pavement, geotechnical, geological, tunnel and all engineers to use their knowledge and talents to solve many challenging problems involving highways, bridges, structures, pavements, materials, ground improvements, slopes, excavations, dams, canals and tunnels with innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies.

All accepted papers will be published on Springer Edited Books (EI Indexed and will be submitted for inclusion in ISI-WoS Thomson Reuters). Selected papers will be considered for publication as special issues in some Prestigious Journals, including the: Innovative Infrastructure Solutions (Springer), International Journal of Geosynthetics and Ground Engineering (Springer) and Environmental Geotechnics (ICE) subjected to a full peer review process as set forth by their Editors.

Geotechnical Frontiers 2017 – Call for Abstract Deadline Reminder
