NZGS Symposium 2021 – Good Grounds For The Future
The world is experiencing profound changes.
These mark the dawning of a new era of pressing challenges that Geotechnical Engineering must deal with, internationally and in New Zealand.
Get on board for Dunedin – now in March 2021!
We will explore the opportunities and challenges of our future, by learning from the achievements and failures of our past.
This symposium aims to attract the most recent developments in geotechnical engineering, and associated disciplines in New Zealand and internationally.
We look for stimulating technical discussions and out-of-the-box ideas in the fields of engineering geology geotechnical engineering, seismology, geophysics, new technologies.
The Symposium is preceded by a one-and-a-half-day workshop and field study which starts in Queenstown and ends in Dunedin at the welcome reception. The two-day symposium will include technical talks, discussions, and a trade exhibition. We will use a range of formats: keynote speakers, plenary special technical sessions and discussions, speaker presentations, and poster exhibitions. Collaboration and communication with structural and infrastructural engineering will be the key component of our technical sessions.
