About the Event
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.

It is planned that the conference will include a technical exhibition, a conference and technical tours.
