The conference will be on Thursday, November 2 at the St. Charles Convention Center in St. Charles, Missouri – now accepting abstracts until July 14, 2017.

Geo-Structures Confluence will be a multi-track, full-day conference focusing on soil-structure interaction featuring technical topics and case histories presented by local and national experts. The joint morning session will be focused on topics concerning the confluence of geotechnical and structural engineering. There will be two tracks in the afternoon: one track including sessions on geotechnical engineering and geo-environmental topics and one track focused on structural engineering topics. The conference is open to all engineering and construction professionals. Last year’s conference was attended by nearly 200 people located throughout Illinois and Missouri.

The planning committee is seeking speakers to provide a 30- to 60-minute presentation focused on structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, or geo-environmental topics with specific preference given to topics that overlap these focus areas.
