Technical Program Co-Chairs
From the early days of modern geotechnical engineering, sharing Christopher L. Meehan, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE
field experiences of the performance of geostructures – dams, University of Delaware
foundations, tunnels, landfills – in the form of case histories has Sanjeev Kumar, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE
driven the advancement of knowledge for the geo-profession. Southern Illinois University Carbondale
Starting in 1984, Professor Shamsher Prakash formalized this Jared M. Green, P.E., M.ASCE

tradition and organized the First International Conference on
Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering. This conference Proceedings Editors
brought together more than 190 engineers from 30 countries Christopher L. Meehan, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE

to share their experiences, learn from each other, and advance

the profession. By 2013, the 7th conference in this series drew Southern Illinois Univeristy Carbondale
nearly 320 engineers from 40 countries spanning the globe, Joseph Thomas Coe, Jr., Ph.D., EIT, A.M.ASCE
culminating in symposia to honor Ralph B. Peck and Clyde Temple University

Geo-Congress 2019 continues this tradition and features Student Activities Chair
