OHIO RIVER VALLEY SOILS SEMINAR XLIX
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
“Tools for Assessing Geotechnical Site Conditions”
NOVEMBER 9, 2018
The Kentucky Geotechnical Engineering Group (KGEG) is issuing this Call for Abstracts for the 49thannual Ohio River Valley Soils Seminar (ORVSS XLIX) to be held on November 9, 2018 in Lexington, Kentucky.
Characterization of geotechnical site conditions is a critical step for civil engineering projects of all sizes and complexity. Current state of practice combines both traditional and innovative tools to assist in the development of design parameters and analysis inputs. These tools can also help shape design and construction considerations, thereby reducing the risk of unforeseen conditions. This seminar will review current state of practice as well as future trends in technologies for characterizing geotechnical site conditions. Presentations can include case histories, state of practice and advancements, application of the information gathered using geotechnical tools, and many other topics.
The ORVSS Committee will select abstracts for presentation during the one-day seminar. Authors of selected abstracts will also be asked to write a concise paper to expand on their topic. Drafts of the papers will be reviewed by the ORVSS Committee for general content with respect to the topic/abstract, and presence of marketing or advertisements. Instructions on the formatting of the paper will be provided to authors upon notice of acceptance. Papers of the selected presentations will be distributed to the event attendees as part of the Seminary Proceedings. Refer to the following list for milestone dates regarding abstract, paper, and presentation preparation.
