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. We hope to present a conference where innovative, multidisciplinary solutions and best practices for dealing with extreme engineering challenges are openly shared and discussed. In keeping with CGS practice, challenging and informative workshops, seminars and tours will be offered in conjunction with the conference, along with a Partners Program that will highlight local and regional activities. The official languages of the conference are English and French.
Known as a city with Infinite Horizons, this community slogan reflects both the vastness of space and momentum of our current growth. We welcome you to a city that has gone from prairie field to one of Canada’s fastest growing cities.
The Delta Regina hotel is located in the heart of downtown Regina and within walking distance of the city’s many landmarks including Wascana Park and the Legislature Building, Victoria Park, Casino Regina housed in the old Union Station, and numerous shops and restaurants. Delegates and their guests may also choose to visit popular tourist attractions such as the RCMP Heritage Centre, Globe Theatre, Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Norman Mackenzie Art Gallery, Saskatchewan Science Centre, Regina Symphony Orchestra, Government House and Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
