Mark you calendars now for a really big geotechnical engineering and foundation construction “mega-event” next year – The International Foundation Congress & Equipment Expo ’09. The Geo-Institute of ASCE, the ADSC, and the PDCA are the lead organizations for the event. Many other organizations are also Cooperating Organizations.
The International Foundations Congress and Equipment Expo ’09 (IFCEE09) will provide a spectacular and comprehensive Congress. It combines the International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC), the Geo-Institute of ASCE, and the Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA) 2009 annual meetings, and will bring together varied USA and worldwide industry organizations.
As part of the technical program, engineers, foundation contractors, equipment manufacturers, suppliers of tools and services, and researchers will discuss the latest technological advances in the foundation and earth retention industry. The extensive outdoor large equipment exposition and indoor displays provide attendees an opportunity to examine the tools of foundation construction, and are an additional incentive for constructors and engineers to attend this mega-event. This expanded program builds on the highly successful 2004 Geo-Support conference and equipment exposition held in Orlando, FL.
The conference will be at the Buena Vista Palace Resort and Spa adjacent to Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World, Florida. In addition to a full program of keynote speakers, technical paperas, case histories, and panel discussions, the largest equipment exposition devoted to the foundation industry will also be held.
Information on the Call for Papers is here. Abstracts are due April 30, 2008.
