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, hosted by the Transport Research Centre of University of Technology Sydney (UTS-TRC) in close collaboration with the ISSMGE’s Technical Committee TC202 (Transportation Geotechnics) and the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS). Moreover, the themes of the 5th ICTG have warmly embraced the related roles and activities of Ground Improvement (TC211) and Sustainability in Geotechnical Engineering (TC307), thus expected to attract a large cross-section of our international geotechnical community.

The Conference will aim at promoting concepts and applications predominantly in the fields of sustainable transport infrastructure design, associated ground improvement and 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 lectures, State of the Art and State of Practice Lectures, ISSMGE Bright spark lectures and Australian Heritage Oration, together with brain-storming technical discussions will highlight three days of scientific and technical discourse, followed by attractive excursions encompassing the awesome natural landscape of the state of New South Wales (NSW).

Conference Chair
Distinguished Prof Buddhima Indraratna (Director, UTS Transport Research Centre)
