Symposium Ingeokring this year organized in cooperation with the section Geotechnics of the Dutch Royal Institute of Engineers (KIVI)

Dear member of the Ingeokring or member of the section Geotechnics (KIVI)

At Thursday the 21st of November, the Ingeokring will organize together with KIVI section Geotechniek the annual symposium called:

Geotechnical Engineering on a Geological Foundation
Unforeseen ground conditions or not?

This symposium offers you interesting presentations about topics concerning both geology and geotechnical engineering, and offers an excellent opportunity to meet other geo-engineers. The symposium will be held at Delft University of Technology, from 13:30 to 17:30 at Room F.

The invited speakers are:

  • Prof. Dr. Christian Schroeder (Université Libre de Bruxelles)
  • Dr. Ulrich Polom (Leibniz-Institut für Angewandte Geophysik, Hannover)
  • Marc Van Den Broeck (Department Manager RMPE, DEME, Belgium)
  • Arjan Venmans (Deltares)
  • Joost van der Schrier (Royal HaskoningDHV (Director Advisory Group), Chairman Ingeokring)
