The 3rd International Conference on Performance-based Design in Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering (PBD-III) takes place in Vancouver, BC, Canada, from July 16-19, 2017. The PBD-III Conference is organized under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering - Technical Committee TC203 on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Associated Problems (ISSMGE-TC203). The PBD-I and PBD-II events in Japan (2009) and Italy (2012), respectively, were highly successful events for the international geotechnical earthquake engineering community.
Come join an international community of geo-professionals working to share and advance performance-based design practices for geotechnical earthquake engineering across a broad range of civil infrastructure problems. The coverage will be diverse, including case histories and practice-oriented papers, recent research findings, innovative technologies, and the emerging arts from across the world. An international mix professional engineers, researchers, specialty contractors, educators, and students will interact across a broad range of keynote and theme lectures, technical sessions, short courses, panel discussions, and field trips.
