[Call for Abstract] GeoSS International Conference on Case Histories & Soil Properties, 5 – 6 December 2019


Dear GeoSS Members,


The Geotechnical Society of Singapore is organising the International Conference on Case Histories & Soil Properties (ICCS 2019) on 5 & 6 December 2019 at Furama Riverfront hotel and wish to invite you to submit abstracts for the Conference.


To accommodate the rapidly expanding economy in many parts of the world, a large number of geotechnical infrastructure projects are ongoing in many countries worldwide. These include the development of airports and sea ports, the construction of mass rapid transit lines and high speed rail lines as well as the development of underground large caverns. For these projects, large amount of soil and rock data are generated and proper soil/rock characterization would help to enhance the safety and reducing cost of these large projects. Instrumentation plays a key role to compare the measured ground responses against design assumptions and calculations. Necessary remedial action may be necessary should the measured and predicted ground responses differ substantially. These case studies indeed provide valuable means for the improvement of design know-how and lessons learnt for subsequent similar development.
