The theme of the Conference is "Geotechnical Engineering, foundation of the future". The theme of the conference embraces all aspects of geotechnical engineering.  Geotechnical engineering is the foundation of current as well as future societies, which both rely on complex civil engineering infrastructures, and call for mitigation of potential geodangers posing threat to these. Geotechnical means and solutions are required to ensure infrastructure safety and sustainable development. Those means are rooted in past experiences enhanced by research and technology of today.



Innovation and Sustainability in Geotechnics for Developing Africa.

Hosted in one of the continent’s most iconic cities, this conference will serve practitioners, academics and students of all geotechnical backgrounds. The conference will offer extensive opportunities for technical committee meetings, workshops, paper presentations, exhibitions and sponsorships. A variety of tours, including to famous Robben Island, await.



The 16th Asian Regional Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (16ARC) will be held on October 14-18 in 2019 in Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), Taipei, Taiwan. The main theme of the 16ARC is Geotechnique for Sustainable Development and Emerging Market Regions. A number of subjects on modern geotechnical technologies and activities will be covered up to match up the main theme. In a roll of 60 years, we sincerely hope that the 16ARC will continue to bring great success following the glories of past
