The conference theme – Breaking Ground in the Nation’s Capital – reflects this annual conference’s continued tradition of providing a forum for recent research developments and advancements in geotechnical engineering and hydrogeology.
OttawaGeo2007: The Diamond Jubilee Conference will be a celebration of the last 60 years of geotechnical engineering accomplishments and of continued innovation in addressing complex geotechnical and hydrogeological challenges. In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, the conference will include a complement of local tours, workshops and short courses. The national capital’s cultural institutions will form the backdrop for the conference’s social program promising a combined display of natural beauty and cultural heritage.
The conference program will include daily plenary sessions featuring keynote speakers of interest to all delegates, followed by technical and specialty sessions to meet the diverse needs of attendees. Prominent and up and coming members of the profession will be recognized at the CGS’s and IAH-CNC’s annual awards.
The organizing committee is presently developing short courses to be held on Sunday, October 21, 2007. Also, technical tours are a valuable way to be exposed to local geotechnical and hydrogeological conditions and features. Be sure to check back for more information on proposed short courses and tours in early 2007.
