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 fourth edition of the International Conference on Engineering Geophysics (ICEG). This fourth edition will be October 9-12, 2017 and on the grounds of the UAEU in the Conference Auditorium of the Crescent Building.
The success of the first, second and third ICEGs is reflected by the number of participants and the great interest shown by and 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 has led to the third in the series and decision to extend the fields of interest to a wider range of near surface related specialties including groundwater, time-lapse, security, seismicity, and geothermal to name a few options. Beyond this 2017 event, this world class series will be broadened to allow sharing of the event with other regional partners with equivalent enthusiasm for the application of geophysics to near-surface problems.
The United Arab Emirates is building a sustainable, balanced, and diversified economy to ensure stability and prosperity through innovation and excellence as priorities. This conference has been designed and operated with those attributes and guidelines as drivers. Those 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.
