2nd IAEG Latin-American Regional Conference and XVII Pan-American Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE)

12-16 November 2024, La Serena, Chile
Organized by Sociedad Chilena de Geotecnia (SOCHIGE) and Asociación Chilena de Ingeniería Geológica (ACHIGEO)

Dear colleagues: On behalf of the Chilean Geotechnical Society (SOCHIGE), you are cordially invited to participate in the 17th Pan-American Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (XVII PCSMGE) and 2nd Latin-American Regional Conference of the International Association of Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG) to be held in Chile in November 2024. We are delighted to organize this event, for the second time, after hosting it back in 1991. With an average width of 180 kilometers and a length of about 5000 kilometers, Chile is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the majestic Andes Mountains to the east. These characteristics result in a country with a wide variety of climates and vegetation, as well as both soil and rock conditions along its territory. As part of the Circum-Pacific Belt, Chile is one of the great seismically active regions in the world, which is of particular interest to geoscientists and geotechnical engineers worldwide. The Panamerican congress will serve as a unique platform for dissemination of knowledge and fruitful interactions among researchers and practitioners from different generations and nationalities. We are excited to keep growing as a community and your attendance is essential to the success of this conference. We look forward to receiving you in our country!
