About the Symposium

Transportation geotechnics provide key knowledge to building sustainable pavement and railroad track infrastructure. With recent major investments expected in road construction and high speed railways in India and many other countries, transportation geotechnics is becoming increasingly important. With an urgent need to develop this sector, we would like to welcome you to International Symposium on Geotechnics of Transportation Infrastructure (ISGTI 2018). The symposium will provide platform for exchange of ideas and information on new trends and practises followed in pavement design, railroad track, bridges, metro and other allied fields. Engineers and professionals working in these fields are welcome to publish their work in this symposium held for the first time in India and update them with the latest advances in this field.

Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS), in association with Delhi chapter of Indian Geotechnical Society, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) and TC202 of International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), will host the symposium at IIT Delhi, New Delhi on April 07-08, 2018. Over 300-350 delegates from India and abroad are expected to participate and deliberate on latest developments. The symposium is being organized by an Organizing Committee guided by a Symposium Advisory Committee as well as TC202 (Technical Committee on Transport Geotechnics) of ISSMGE. The theme of the Symposium is “Transportation Geotechnics for Infrastructure Development".
