We would like to draw your attention to the attached Call for Submissions for Geo-Extreme 2021, a specialty conference organize by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to be held at the Hyatt Regency Savannah, in Savannah, GA, USA, on August 15-18, 2021.
Geo-Extreme 2021 aims to create a multi-disciplinary forum to discuss how the geo-engineering community can work with other professionals, e.g., climate scientists, engineers, emergency managers, resilience and sustainability investigators, insurance experts, and policy makers, to cope with extreme events (such as hurricanes, floods, extreme precipitations, droughts, wildfires, debris flows, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides) under a changing climate.
The Conference Organizing Committee is planning a technical program that includes state-of-the-art contributions addressing all facets pertaining to the challenges and opportunities that the engineering profession faces dealing with extreme events in the face of climate change. Submissions in different forms (paper abstracts, technical session proposals, panel proposals, and short course proposals) are solicited on various topics related to the main theme of the conference.
- Proposals for technical sessions, panels, and short courses are due May 22 and may be only emailed to Jay McKelvey at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Abstracts are due June 19 and may be only submitted via the online CATALYST Submission System at:
We invite you to consider participating in this event through submitting an abstract and/or proposal. Further, it would be greatly appreciated if you distribute this Call for Submissions to anyone who might be interested in the conference. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact us.
