Advances in Theory & Innovation in Practice

In a time when artificial intelligence, big data, and machine learning are becoming more common in various disciplines of engineering, risk-based methods are attracting additional interest among practitioners and academicians through new textbooks, journals, dedicated sessions at G-I symposia and international activity.

Geo-Risk 2023: Advances in Theory and Innovation in Practice will showcase the latest interdisciplinary research and innovation in risk assessment and management to cater for the disruption in geotechnical practice and engage attendees on the broader vision and societal importance of geotechnical engineering in addressing risk and resilience issues of civil infrastructure.

Risk and probabilistic methods in geotechnical engineering are among the fastest growing areas in the profession. Geo-Risk 2023 will be the third specialty conference offered by the Risk Assessment and Management Committee of the ASCE Geo-Institute. Geo-Risk 2011, held in Atlanta, covered risk assessment and management in all fields of geoengineering while Geo-Risk 2017, held in Denver, featured “Geotechnical Risk: From Theory to Practice”.

Target Audience

This conference will bring together the diverse professionals who work, teach, and learn in all branches of geotechnical engineering, including:

  • Professional engineers and other geo-professionals from consulting and industry in the geotechnical, geology, geophysics, construction, and structural disciplines
  • University educators and researchers
  • Federal and state agencies, including state geological surveys 
  • Specialty contractors in the fields of ground improvement, deep foundations, and tunneling
  • Facility owners from state, federal, and municipal government, military, and private industry
  • Regulators

Top Reasons to Attend

  • Experience interdisciplinary research and practice on geotechnical risk assessment and management to inform site investigation, design, construction, and monitoring of geo-engineering systems
  • Witness the giant strides made in the past decade by geotechnical practitioners and researchers in digitalization, data science, infrastructure resilience, and artificial intelligence 
  • Learn from top leaders in the industry through special plenary sessions, short courses, panels, and technical sessions
  • Network with colleagues within the geo-community from around the block—and around the world 
  • Earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to maintain your professional licensure while gaining relevant focused knowledge
  • Visit exhibitors to find the latest tools, techniques, e-programs, etc. 
  • Last but not least, experience Arlington and the capital city of Washington D.C.
