[会议背景介绍]

On behalf of the Program Committee, you are cordially invited to participate in Geo-Congress 2020: Vision, Insight, Outlook,which will be held February 25–28, 2020 in Minneapolis, MN.

Two decades into a new century, we are using our 2020 conference as an opportunity to reflect on the past, assess the present, and imagine the future.

[征文范围及要求]

Geotechnics of Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers: Flood control; Lake Agassiz Clays and Flood control structure designs. Slope and costal erosion stabilization. Geotechnics of marine structures.

“Common Ground” Geotechnical Issues Shared by the US and Canada: Boarder projects and topics of international interest: Example: Projects along the great lakes, peat, permafrost, and railways.

50th Anniversary of Minnesota Geotechnical Society; University of Minnesota 68th Annual Geotechnical Conference:Kersten Lecture. Invited international speakers. Local and regional projects and case histories. Example: Geotechnics of MN Sports Stadiums: Target Center, Xcel, Twins, US Bank, MN United.

The Geotechnics of Alternative Project Delivery: Impact of project procurement (traditional, CMGC, DB, P3) on geotechnics. Performance-based work.

Geo-Education: Trends in geotechnical engineering education, incorporating research into education, use of case histories in education.

Construction, Inspection, and Monitoring: Innovative monitoring techniques; UAS inspection; LiDAR; photogrammetry; thermal imaging in geoconstruction.

Advances in Geo-Computing. Cloud computing, new methods in numerical methods (discrete element, FDEM, coupled processes, etc.), visualization techniques; geotechnical engineering and the fourth dimensio.

Geo-Systems: Integration of geotechnical engineering with other science and engineering disciplines; bio-inspired geotechnics, geo-structural engineering; hydraulicsscour-soil transport; beyond the thermal pile: geothermal application.

Geo-Forensics: Hindsight is 20/20: Failure case histories; multi-disciplinary teams for geotechnical failure investigations; have we really learned from past failures? Does history always need to repeat itself?

Geo-Ethics: Socially responsible geotechnical practice; reporting of geotechnical data; are we as confident as we appear on paper? Geotechnical engineers, risk, responsibility, and the legal system.

States of Stress: An examination of the challenges of our practice. Moving forward in a dynamic and rapidly changing world. Responding to the priorities and needs of civil infrastructure within constraints and demands related to time, talent, budget, coordination, and communication.
