Local Organizing Committee
The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) and the Calgary Geotechnical Society (CyGS) invite you to GeoCalgary 2020,
the 73rd Canadian Geotechnical Conference. The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Calgary,
Alberta, Canada from September 13 – 16, 2020.
The theme for GeoCalgary 2020 is Reflection on Resources. The prosperity of Canada is largely founded on the extraction, transformation and utilization of resources from several sources, such as agriculture, oil and gas, metals and minerals, hydropower and wind energy. These activities all require infrastructure, facilities, plants, dams or dykes; the design and construction of which necessitate solving great geotechnical challenges. The conference intends to focus on past and recent geotechnical achievements, and the lessons that can be learned from them to improve current practices and build a better sustainable future. The technical program will encompass a wide range of topics, including specialty sessions that are of local and national relevance. In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, the conference will include a complement of distinguished keynote speakers, high calibre short courses, social events, and technical tours.
