International Conference on Engineering Geology and Geotechniques for Safe and Sustainable Infrastructures

A formidable bridge among Geologists, Geophysicists, Engineers, and Geotechnical Engineers, the Indian Society of Engineering Geology (ISEG) was inaugurated on 15th October 1965 at Kolkata by the then Union Minister of Irrigation and Power Dr. K.L. Rao. Dr. D.N. Wadia, the doyen of Indian geology was its First President. The ISEG is the Indian National Group of the International Association of Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG). IAEG has more than 4400 members and 61 National groups across the world. Apart from the active patronage of the premier national geoscientific organisations – the Geological Survey of India, the ISEG (www.isegindia.org) represents almost all the leading organisations involved in infrastructural developmental projects in India like NHPC, NTPC, THDC, SJVN, NEEPCO, and Irrigation and Waterways Departments of various States. ISEG currently has a membership base of more than 1500 members and has provided a vibrant national knowledge platform for discussing and debating a host of geotechnical challenges and state-of-the-art technologies in the field of Engineering Geology and Geotechniques, and allied fields through its reputed regular publication in the form of Journal of Engineering Geology (www.joegindia.com), special publications and organising National and International Conferences/ workshops, Geo-orientation training programs regularly.

EGCON 2022 invites all geoscientists, engineers, geotechnical experts, planners, and administrators to join the event in large numbers for making this event a successful and purposeful one. EGCON 2022 has already finalised diverse conference themes covering almost all the relevant branches of Engineering Geology and Geotechniques that are continuously being pursued and practiced by the experts while designing and constructing critical infrastructures more safely and sustainably. EGCON 2022 will give a golden opportunity for outreach, one-to-one interactions, opportunities for brief interactions in business meetings, and the scope of exhibitions, apart from technical discourse through both oral and poster presentations.

Let us join at Novotel Hotel and Residences, New Town, Kolkata on 16-17 November 2022 and take the opportunity and promote mutual knowledge sharing and learning with the leading experts in this field.
