Welcome to GeoEdmonton 2018

The Geotechnical Society of Edmonton and the Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS), in collaboration with the Canadian National Chapter of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH-CNC), invite you to GeoEdmonton 2018, the 71st Canadian Geotechnical Conference and the 13th Joint CGS/IAH-CNC Groundwater Conference. The conference will be held at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from Sunday, September 23 to Wednesday, September 26, 2018.

The theme for GeoEdmonton 2018 is Transportation Geotechnique - Moving Forward. Much of Canada's prosperity is founded on its vast network of railways, pipelines, highways, and waterways. This conference intends to highlight recent achievements in transportation development and their associated geohazards. The technical program will cover a wide range of geotechnical and hydrogeological topics, including specialty sessions that are of local and national relevance. In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, the conference will include a complement of distinguished keynote speakers, high calibre short courses, social events, and technical tours.

Edmonton was founded on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River and served as a Hudson's Bay Company trading outpost that grew to become Canada's Gateway to the North and Alberta's Capital City, with a population of over 1.3 million people. Edmonton has an open and welcoming atmosphere, and is home to one of the most diverse populations in Canada. Also known as the Festival City, Edmonton showcases its local and international talent and diversity through various festivals like its annual Heritage Festival and the second largest Fringe Theatre Festival in the world. Boasting the longest stretch of connected urban parkland in North America, Edmonton is also a wonderful place to get outside and enjoy nature without leaving the city's limits.

The Shaw Conference Centre is not only one of Canada's premier conference venues, but is itself a geotechnical achievement, being constructed on the flank of an active landslide overlooking Edmonton’s beautiful river valley in the heart of downtown.

Please browse the site for complete details on the Technical Themes, the Call for Abstracts and Key Dates.

We look forward to hosting you at GeoEdmonton 2018!
