The Geological Society of London is the UK national society for geoscience, providing support to over 10,000 members in the UK and overseas. Founded in 1807, we are the oldest geological society in the world.
We are pleased to announce a conference for the Society’s chosen scientific theme in 2017 (Year of Risk). The meeting will focus on best practice for managing geotechnical infrastructure and is supported by the UK Geotechnical Asset Owners Forum.
The conference will provide an opportunity to showcase innovative, industry leading approaches to holistic and tactical risk management across geotechnical infrastructure.
We particularly welcome abstracts for oral and poster presentations from geoscientists specialising in geohazards, engineering geology, geotechnics, hydrogeology as well as science communicators, risk assessors and risk managers.
An important aspect of the meeting will be to explore case studies and to consider what insights and understanding can be shared across sectors and applications.
Abstracts should be no more than 500 words and should be emailed to email@example.com as a Word document.
