Prague Geotechnical Days 2024

13–14 May 2024

Geotechnical Monitoring 


The 30th Jubilee International Conference Prague Geotechnical Days is dedicated to Geotechnical Monitoring. The conference will be held on 13 and 14 May 2024

We are pleased to invite you to the international conference Prague Geotechnical Days 2024 with the 30th Prague Geotechnical Lecture, which will take place on 13 and 14 May 2024 in Prague. Join us for two dynamic days filled with engaging lectures, insightful case studies and a practical workshop focused on Coarse Granular Materials.

With international guests from France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain and Sweden, all lectures will be dedicated to geotechnical monitoring. The 30th Annual Prague Geotechnical Lecture on Liquefaction-Induced Landslides and a workshop on Coarse Granular Materials will be given by Professor Eduardo Alonso. The Academician Quido Záruba Prize for Young Engineering Geologists and Geotechnical Engineers will be awarded for outstanding works in the field.

Since 1993, we have been bringing together leading geotechnical experts from around the world for the international conference Prague Geotechnical Days. For the past three decades, we have been sharing the latest scientific findings, innovations and current topics in the field of geotechnical engineering. Join us for two days of innovation and science as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Prague Geotechnical Days.

We look forward to seeing you in Prague!
