Dr. Mridul Srivastava
I feel privileged and delighted in informing you about the EGCON 2022, scheduled to be held during 16-17 November 2022 in Kolkata. With the response from the Scientific community and grand successes of the earlier four Conferences in the EGCON Series, the ISEG is organising, the fifth, the EGCON 2022 in physical mode again in the City of Joy – Kolkata, India. As per the legacy of the Society, the ISEG will again be providing a vibrant platform for knowledge sharing and capacity building by organising EGCON 2022 and also to deliberate upon recent developments/trends in the field of surveys, investigations, and challenges related to infrastructure development including power and communication projects, particularly to reduce the geological uncertainties and geo-hazards and environment-related issues relevant to sustainable development.
In the present natural and conceptual changing scenario, as the pump storage power projects are being preferred over river valley hydroelectric projects, communication tunnels are being constructed in place of surface transport facilities, and several Geohazards like a landslide floods earthquakes, etc. and other environment-related problems are being witnessed due to prevailing climate changes, the EGCON 2022 will provide an intellectual forum to discuss all the issues for exploring ideas about their redressal.
After EGCON 2018 and a break of three years, EGCON 2022 is providing an excellent opportunity for all of us to meet physically at Kolkata between 16-17 November 2022 at the Event for expressing and exchanging our scientific ideas and rejoice ourselves. I cordially invite professionals, academicians, researchers, and students from India and abroad involved in the investigation, construction, mining, and infrastructure development works to attend the EGCON- 2022 in large numbers and contribute technical papers for making the event a grand success.
