Conference Program

The GeoManitoba 2012: Building On the Past conference reflects the heritage of geotechnical engineering in Canada and how our past will help us going forward in new research, developments and advancements in geotechnical engineering. It also reflects the ever increasing need to restore or upgrade our country’s aging infrastructure.

The GeoManitoba 2012 conference program will include daily plenary sessions, featuring keynote speakers of interest to all delegates, followed by technical and specialty sessions to meet the diverse needs of attendees. Monday’s keynote plenary session will feature the RM Hardy Address – Tuesday’s keynote plenary will feature the CGS Colloquium.

In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, the conference will include local technical tours, workshops and short courses. We anticipate that a draft conference program will be available for viewing in the spring of 2012.

The technical committee is presently developing short courses and technical tours to be held on Sunday, September 30, 2012. Our technical tours are a valuable way to be exposed to local geotechnical conditions and features. Be sure to check back for more information on proposed short courses and tours in early 2012.
