41st Southwest Geotechnical Engineers Conference SWGEC
May 9, 2016 - May 12, 2016
The 2016 Southwest Geotechnical Engineers Conference will be held in Olathe, Kansas (metro Kansas City area) from May 9-12, 2016. The Southwest Geotechnical Engineers Conference (SWGEC) is a state DOT-sponsored annual conference composed of members from the states of Arizona, California, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. The SWGEC is an excellent forum for technology transfer and networking between state, local, and federal transportation agencies as well as for consultants, contractors, suppliers, and manufacturers. The conference focuses on lessons learned from case histories in design and construction, current research, and new trends in the areas of Geotechnical, Geological, Geophysical, and Geoenvironmental Engineering.
The conference is targeted to the geotechnical engineering community in the public and private sectors involved in the transportation industry working in design, construction, management, research, and academia. Participants in this conference consider this to be one of the best and most productive technical sessions they attend during the course of the year.
