Engineering Resiliency in a Changing Climate
June 3 - 6, 2018

Call for Abstracts

The Geohazards 7 Organizing Committee calls for members of the Canadian and international geotechnical community to contribute recent research developments and advancement in their respective fields of interest and practice related to hazards and risks in geo-engineering.

The Technical Subcommittee is seeking case studies and papers dealing with hazards affecting linear infrastructure, coastal areas, private property, dams and dikes, etc. Risk communication and public engagement are key topics which will be put forward in this conference. Moreover, we also encourage papers and poster presentations on recent trends and future prospects in research, such as multi-element scenarios and extreme weather events.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts of a maximum of 300 words by November 1, 2017 through the Online Submission page of the conference website. Abstracts can be written in English or French. A detailed list of the proposed subtopics can be found under Technical Themes.

Invitations for the submission of full papers will be sent by December 1, 2017 to authors whose abstracts are accepted by the conference's Technical Subcommittee. All submitted papers will be reviewed prior to final acceptance for inclusion in the conference proceedings. At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the conference in order to upload a final paper and to be invited to make a presentation in the technical program.

Final decisions regarding clarity, technical merit, relevance, and the assigned session topic for accepted papers are the responsibility of the Technical Subcommittee.
