Welcome to GeoSt.John's 2019

The Geotechnical Society of St. John’s and the Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) invite you to GeoSt.John's 2019, the 72nd Canadian Geotechnical Conference. The conference will be held at the St. John’s Convention Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada from Sunday, September 29 to Wednesday, October 2, 2019.

The theme for GeoSt.John's 2019 is Under Land and Sea. Growth of the offshore oil and gas industry in Atlantic Canada has created many opportunities for the geotechnical community. This conference intends to highlight recent achievements in offshore and nearshore geotechnical engineering. The technical program will also cover a wide range of geotechnical and hydrogeological topics, including specialty sessions that are of local and national relevance. In addition to the technical program and plenary sessions, GeoSt.John's 2019 will include a complement of distinguished keynote speakers, high calibre short courses, social events, and technical tours.

For over 500 years St. John’s has been visited by explorers and adventurers. Rich with history, rife with culture, and sprawling with natural beauty, St. John’s is a city of exaggerated proportions. All these wonders have been here for thousands of years, embraced by those who happened upon them. And while finding the true spirit of this land, you’ll stumble upon everything from wildlife, to people, to amazing vistas, to an abundance of culture. In fact, being the most easterly point in North America merits our very own time zone, half-an-hour off-kilter with the rest of the world! Around every corner, around every bend, you will find a little piece of heaven, an unexpected delight, and a playful breeze that will help your journey.

With a population of over 200,000, the metropolitan St. John’s area is the economic and cultural centre of the province and offers a natural environment, clean air, safe streets and all the amenities of a larger city with a European flavour. Our rich history and culture and “small town” quality of life make St. John’s a pleasure to visit.

We look forward to hosting you at GeoSt.John's 2019 in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in 2019!
