IAEG XIV Congress 2022

September 14-20, 2022

As a quadrennial global academic event initiated by the International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG), the IAEG Congress has been successfully held for 13 sessions, which aims to propagate the latest research results in the field of engineering geology and the environment, facilitate international academic exchanges and interdisciplinary integration, and promote the disciplinary construction of engineering geology and the environment. To further strengthen theoretical innovation, technological breakthrough and international cooperation in the field of engineering geology and the environment.

The XIV Congress of the International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment will be held in Chengdu Century City New International Convention and Exhibition Center, Chengdu, China from September 14 to 20, 2022. Based on the theme of “Engineering Geology for a Habitable Earth”, the congress is expected to enhance the disciplinary and research development of international engineering geology and the environment, and contribute to the advancement of major projects, ecological progress, and habitable earth with research and discussion in the engineering geology and global climate change, geological hazard assessment and prevention, geotechnical properties of rock and soil mass, engineering geology and the environmental issues concerning marine, transportation, urban and ecological environment protection in major projects, engineering geology and resilience engineering construction, intelligent engineering geology, and new theories, methods, and techniques in engineering geology, etc.

We warmly welcome the worldwide engineering geological community to come to Chengdu to participate in this academic event
