GEESD IV is the 4th decennial Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics Conference organized by the EESD Committee of ASCE's Geo-Institute.  GEESD IV follows the highly successful GEESD conferences in Seattle, Washington (1998), Park City, Utah (1988), and Pasadena, California (1978).

GEESD IV will bring together the broad community of geo-professionals working on earthquake engineering and soil dynamics problems for this comprehensive decennial examination of our technical disciplines.  The coverage will be diverse, including case histories and practice-oriented papers, recent research findings, innovative technologies, and the emerging arts across many of our disciplines.  Professional engineers, researchers, specialty contractors, regulators, educators, and students will interact across a broad range of technical sessions, tutorials, short courses, discussions, and equipment demonstrations.

Conference Format

The four-day conference will include 2-5 Technical Short Courses/Workshops, 3 Plenary Sessions, 27 Concurrent Technical Sessions, 5 Tutorials, a Poster Session, an Exhibition, a NEES Equipment Demonstration, and Technical Field Trips.  Additional events intended for renewing acquaintances and meeting new colleagues, will include a Welcome Reception, a Networking Reception in the exhibit hall with posters, and a Gala Banquet.

The conference proceedings will be published on CD-ROM and provided to all full conference registrants as part of the registration fee.
