The 4th International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (4th ICTG) will be held in Chicago, Illinois, on 23-26 May 2021 (original dates August 30–September 2, 2020). This is the main conference event of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) Technical Committee (TC) 202 on Transportation Geotechnics and it is organized every four years. The primary focus of TC202 is to apply broad engineering to bridge the gap between Pavement/Railway Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering.
The Transportation Geotechnics International Conference series began under the auspices of ISSMGE Technical Committee (TC) 3 and was initiated in 2008 at the University of Nottingham, UK, as an international event
designed to address the growing requirements of infrastructure for societies. The 2nd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (ICTG) took place in Sapporo, Japan in 2012 under the ISSMGE-TC202 that followed the TC3 activities for the period 2009-2013, and the 3rd ICTG was organized in Guimarães, Portugal in September 2016.
Following this 3rd successful conference, the 4th ICTG in 2020 will continue to promote co-operation and exchange of information and knowledge about the geotechnical aspects and address challenges in design, construction, maintenance, monitoring and upgrading of roads, railways, airfields and harbor facilities and other ground transportation infrastructure with the goal of providing safe, economic, environmental, reliable and sustainable infrastructures.
