The Pakistan Geotechnical Engineering Society (PGES) under the aegis of International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) takes pleasure in hosting 16th International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering from December 07-08, 2022 in Lahore Pakistan.
The broad theme of “Geotechnical Engineering” has been kept for 16ICGE to attract a diversity of quality papers from around the globe. The Conference will act as a platform for exchange of technical ideas between Clients, Consultants, Contractors and Manufacturers. Outstanding keynote lectures, presentations and technical discussions will afford opportunity to explore the advancements in geotechnical engineering.
‘One who has not seen Lahore was not really born,’ goes an old Punjabi maxim. Lahore is one of the very few cities in the world, which takes pride in its own ubiquitous lifestyle. Its traditions, dialect, festivities, cuisine, body language, and air are typically Lahori, unlike any other city. Lahore, being the provincial capital of Punjab (Pakistan), is a center of brisk economic and political activities. It has always been the city of poets, saints, philosophers, and artists; the prime citadel of education and learning in Pakistan. It is a business and industrial center too. It has everything that a city needs to be called ‘great.’ The culture of Lahore is a manifestation of the lifestyle, festivals, literature, music, language, politics, cuisine and socio-economic conditions of the people. Its original cultural property lies in the form of mosques, forts, gateways, residential buildings, palaces, tombs, alleyways and open squares. These when coupled with the traditional cultural activities and social relationships, enhance the character of the Walled City with its individual buildings and bazaars. While Lahore has a great many traditional and modern restaurants, in recent years Western fast food chains have appeared all over the city. Lahore has seen a myriad of melodies, genres, and vocals alongside a variety of musical instruments (both new and old) over the past few decades.
The 16ICGE will also provide a great opportunity to the engineers, geologists, seismologists and other professionals engaged in the field of geotechnical engineering, foundation design, construction and manufacturing, to share their expertise in the realm of Geotechnical Engineering.
