GeoRegina 2014 - Canadian Geotechnical Society
September 28 - October 1, 2014

Delta Regina Hotel, Regina SK, Canada

The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) invites you to GeoRegina 2014, the 67th Canadian Geotechnical Conference. The conference will be held at the Delta Regina Hotel, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada from Sunday, September 28 to Wednesday, October 1, 2014. 

The theme for GeoRegina 2014, “Engineering for the Extremes” will highlight current trends in geotechnical engineering by addressing increasingly complex problems under more extreme operating conditions. The organizers intend to bring a focus to local challenges, such as climate, expansive clays, and permafrost, in the face of unprecedented economic and population growth. The technical program will offer opportunities for delegates to explore various examples ranging from environment damage to rehabilitation of failing infrastructure.

The DFNE 2014 organizing committee invites you to join us to share your ideas and experiences in the increased development and practical use of this technology under the theme Engineering Characterization of Fractured Rock Masses: Applications of Discrete Fracture Network Engineering.

DFNE 2014 - Conference
October 19 - 22, 2014
Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel, Vancouver BC, Canada


The Vancouver rock mechanics community is pleased to host DFNE 2014, the 1st International Conference on Discrete Fracture Network Engineering. This conference will be the inaugural international meeting of engineers and geoscientists who use discrete fracture network engineering in the characterization of rock masses and solutions of engineering problems. This new and rapidly expanding area of engineering has wide applications, including underground and surface mining, underground nuclear waste disposal, petroleum geomechanics, civil engineering and natural hazards.

The DFNE 2014 organizing committee invites you to join us to share your ideas and experiences in the increased development and practical use of this technology under the theme Engineering Characterization of Fractured Rock Masses: Applications of Discrete Fracture Network Engineering.
