Welcome to GeoVancouver 2016


Dear Delegates!

The 69th Canadian Geotechnical Conference was held at the Westin Bayshore Hotel from October 2nd to 5th and was so well attended that we had to close registrations!

The technical program consisted of plenary sessions, concurrent sessions and exhibitors' sessions. With such overwhelming response, we ran out of proceedings. However, shortly every delegate will be sent a link to access all the papers. In addition to that, we would like to post the PDF slides of the technical presentation which we collected during the conference. If any of the presenters doesn't wish them to be posted, please email the secretariat@geovancouver2016.com by November 8th.

The social program allowed for all delegates to network with exhibitors and supporters as well as students who thanks to donated tickets to social events could also participate and network with their peers and colleagues.

Thank you for attending GeoVancouver 2016 and making it such a success!
