The United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) and Al Ain City Municipality (AAM), in partnership with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), are proud to announce the seventh edition of the International Conference on Engineering Geophysics (ICEG). This edition will take place 16–19 October 2023 on the grounds of the UAEU in the Conference Auditorium of the Crescent Building. The success of the first six editions of the ICEG was reflected by the number of participants and the great interest and positive feedback from both local authorities and the international geo-community working with geophysical methods applied to engineering, environmental, archaeological, geotechnical, and forensic problems. Overwhelming encouragement from this community led to the seventh edition, and a decision to maintain the broad and active areas of near surface-related specialties.
The United Arab Emirates continues to build a sustainable, balanced, and diversified economy intended to ensure stability and prosperity with innovation and excellence as priorities. This conference has been designed and operated with those attributes and guidelines as drivers. These priorities speak to social responsibility and strongly signal the need for effective and technically sound engineering geophysics supporting regional growth. Therefore, the conscientious and rigorous application of engineering geophysics has become mandatory prior to approval of any construction project in Abu Dhabi Emirate.The objectives of this event will concentrate on innovation, creativity, advances, and new approaches in the field of engineering/environmental geophysics and related fields that have global impact. In addition to the core engineering/environmental and geotechnical focuses of this coming event, special sessions in related applications of archaeology, monitoring, energy, and forensic geophysics will be included. Furthermore, international experts at the cutting edge of their disciplines will deliver keynote presentations on their latest research, experiences, future goals for engineering/environmental geophysics, and raising public awareness on the critical role of near-surface geophysics.
