5th International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics, 20-22 November 2024, Sydney Masonic Centre, Australia

Join us in Sydney, 20 – 22 November 2024

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we have the pleasure of inviting you to the 5th International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (ICTG) 2024, to be held in Sydney Masonic Centre, from 20 to 22 November 2024, organised by the Transport Research Centre, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), in liaison with ISSMGE Technical Committees, Transportation Geotechnics (TC202), Ground Improvement (TC211), Sustainability in Geotechnical Engineering (TC307) and the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS).

The Conference will aim at promoting concepts and applications predominantly in the fields of transport infrastructure design, ground improvement and related natural hazards mitigation. This major event will act as a platform to disseminate the most recent research and field advances to the geotechnical community around the globe through active pathways of academia and practice. Outstanding Keynote and State of the Art lectures, State of Practice and Heritage presentations, and brain-storming technical discussions will contribute three days of scientific and technical discourse, followed by attractive excursions encompassing the awesome natural landscape of the state of New South Wales (NSW).


Early bird registration is now open for the 5th International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (ICTG) 2024.

Register before Wednesday 31 July 2024 to take advantage of our early bird savings.

Abstract submissions are now open

We welcome both original and previously published works to be submitted for presentation at ICTG 2024.

The themes to be featured in the program include, but not limited to:

  • Mechanistic-empirical design (road, railways, airfields, waterways and harbor facilities)
  • Optimized characteristics of geomaterials (e.g. hydraulically bound materials & asphalt mixtures)
  • Recycled materials in road and rail embankments and sub-structural layers
  • Sustainability in transportation geotechnics
  • Fundamentals of road and rail geotechnics
  • Offshore soil improvement, port development and harbour geotechnics
  • Dynamics of transportation infrastructure and numerical modelling
  • Soft Subgrade Instability including yielding and fluidisation (experimental and numerical)

All abstracts must be submitted online by Friday 30 June 2023. Email submissions will not be accepted.
