BSGC2020 - Future Challenges for Geotechnical Engineering
The Finnish Geotechnical Society has a pleasure to invite you to attend the 14th Baltic Sea Region Geotechnical Conference in Helsinki, Finland 25th – 27th of May 2020. The conference will be held in Hotel Clarion.
The conference is organized parallel with the 18th Nordic Geotechnical Meeting (www.NGM2020.com) at the same venue. By registering to the BSGC participant has access also to the interesting sessions of NGM without extra fees.
The Conference will gather distinguished researchers, engineers and practitioners acting in the field of geotechnics, foundation and environmental engineering on the Baltic Sea Region and around the globe.
The leading theme of the conference is Future Challenges for Geotechnical Engineering. The theme emphasizes global trends together with regional and local problems in geotechnical engineering. The climate change, digitalization and urbanization affect profoundly all construction activities including also geotechnical engineering challenging our mindset and ways of working.
The conference will be structured along several topics:
• Novel energy solutions in foundation engineering
• Digital applications in geotechnics
• Geotechnical art and historical experiences
• Soil and rock investigation
• Design experiences and theoretical solutions
• Environmental geotechnics and recycling
• Case studies
• Design guidelines
• Foundation engineering and deep foundations
• Transport infrastructure
We welcome scientific papers that describe original works. Papers may also be submitted on advanced new systems or techniques as well as general research papers indicating future directions. Full papers will be accepted based on their quality, relevance to the theme of the conference and originality. Accepted Scientific papers will be INDEXED via IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science. The program of the conference will cover both oral and poster presentations.
For industry we offer separate low-threshold submission where full paper is not required. We warmly welcome engineers and practitioners to share the knowledge which otherwise so easily stays hidden. Presentations can cover for example interesting geotechnical projects or practical findings found during earth and foundation construction projects.
The Finnish Geotechnical Society and the Committees of BSGC warmly invite you to be part of the most interesting geotechnical event of 2020.
