The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) with support from the Engineering Group of the Geological Society (EGGS) will be hosting a major two-day international conference on Engineering in Chalk on 17th and 18th September 2018 at Imperial College in London.
The last major conference on Chalk was held almost 30 years ago in 1989 in Brighton. Since that time, considerable work has been undertaken internationally through research and in many major projects in Chalk, advancing our understanding of its origin, nature and engineering behavior. The 2018 conference therefore seeks to bring together the knowledge and experience gained in the last three decades by presenting research and case histories to provide a definitive up to date perspective on a wide range of Technical Themes relating to engineering in Chalk.
Early Bird Registration rates are available until midnight on 30 June 2018, full rates apply after that date.
Registration rates are below (all rates are in GBP Pounds):
Early bird rate £180
Full rate £220

There is an addition option of £75, in addition to the delegate fee, of a Technical Visit on Wednesday 19th September 2018. This visit will include a guided trip to the South Coast of England to view Chalk exposures; other Technical Visit Options may be available. Numbers are limited on the Technical Visit and registration will be on a first come, first served basis.
