Geo-Risk 2017

Denver, Colorado | June 4-7, 2017

Why Attend

On behalf of the Geo-Institute (G-I) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), we would like to invite you to Geo-Risk 2017, the 6th International Symposium on geotechnical safety and risk. No other event puts you face-to-face and elbow-to-elbow with some of the most respected authorities from around the globe in the discipline of geotechnical risk assessment and management.

Geotechnical Risk from Theory to Practice will feature the latest research advances and engineering-practice innovations with a focus on the use of probabilistic and risk methodologies in geotechnical engineering. The conference will include a wide range of knowledge-enhancing keynote, panel, and technical sessions, as well as short courses. Topics include:

  • Practice of risk assessment and management in all fields of geoengineering
  • ​Geohazards such as landslides, slope failures, dams and levees, earthquakes, and geoenvironmental hazards including those caused by human activity
  • Reliability-and risk-based code developments
  • Advances in geotechnical Reliability Based Design
  • Load and resistance factor design (LRFD) developments and applications
  • Acceptable risk and risk communication including applications to insurance and financial decision-making
  • Impact of spatial variability and probabilistic site characterization
  • Uncertainty relating to geotechnical properties, models and testing methods
  • Advances in the applications of theory and practice of statistics and probability in geoengineering
  • Emerging Topics

Geo-Risk 2017 will prove you with the latest tools, materials, and techniques for understanding geotechnical risk. You will:

  • Learn from top leaders in the industry through special plenary sessions, panels, and sessions
  • Network with your colleagues from around the world
  • Visit exhibitors to find the latest tools, specific to grouting deep mixing and diaphragm walls all in one place
  • Earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to maintain your professional licensure while gaining relevant focused knowledge
  • Last but not least, experience Denver: sunshine and mountains; history and museums; top restaurants; shopping; and so much more!
