The 1st Malaysian Geotechnical Society - Geotechnical Society of Singapore Geotechnical Conference was successfully held from 24 to 26 June 2019 with close to 300 participants at Hilton Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia.
The second conference was supposed to be held in Singapore but had to be postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. With the relaxation of COVID-19 safe management measures in both countries, the Joint Singapore-Malaysia Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the Second GeoSS-MGS will be held in Singapore from 30 November to 2 December 2023.
The Conference will have an Opening Address and Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished geotechnical experts and eminent academicians. Authors from Singapore, Malaysia, and other countries will make presentations at the Conference.
Sustainable urban development was the theme of the first conference and this topic will remain as the key subject matter of the second conference. New challenges have also emerged in both countries. These include tackling climate change, environmental sustainability achieving carbon-neutral, and holistic considerations of cost, time and safety among other issues.
To continue the tradition, this conference will provide the perfect opportunity for the exchange of know-how and lessons learnt between Singaporean and Malaysian geotechnical practitioners, academicians, and authorities, and is certainly not to be missed.
