School of Infrastructure of Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar is organising an international symposium on offshore geotechnics for the first time in India. The event Indian Symposium on Offshore Geotechnics (ISOG 2019) will be held at IIT Bhubaneswar during December 5-6, 2019 under the aegis of the technical committee, TC 209 of International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE); and Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS), Bhubaneswar Chapter.

The symposium will be accompanied by the first International Workshop on Future Application of Screw Piles (IWFASP 2019) on 07 December 2019 in association with the University of Dundee, UK (under the SPARC Program which is an initiative by the Ministry of Human resource (MHRD), India), Deep Foundation Institute (DFI), Indian Chapter; and Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS), Bhubaneswar Chapter.

The eminent international and Indian experts from academics, research institutions and industries will deliver theme lectures in both the events. This will be an excellent opportunities for practicing engineers, students, academician, and decision makers to meet and deliberate on the state of the art in offshore geotechnics and future application of screw pile. The events will be immensely beneficial for students, academicians, researchers, professionals from various public and private sector and industries.
