5th Canadian Conference on Geotechnique and Natural Hazards
May 15 - 17, 2011 - Kelowna, BC, Canada


The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) is pleased to invite you to the 5th Canadian Conference on Geotechnique and Natural Hazards (GeoHazards 5). Geohazards are more relevant every day as population growth and exploitation of natural resources increases interactions between the earth and human activities. Indeed, the earth itself is being affected by environmental changes induced by human activities.

The GeoHazards conferences are the premiere forum in Canada for the sharing and dissemination of scientific and engineering knowledge related to geohazards. GeoHazards 5 will be held May 15-17, 2011 at the University of British Columbia's Okanagan campus in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia!

Kelowna is the gateway to the Okanagan. It is a modern city nestled amongst stunning mountains, picturesque lakes, lush wineries and sumptuous orchards. Kelowna's spectacular setting will be the backdrop to what promises to be another fantastic technical conference. Great talks, great food, great wine and great friends; we look forward to seeing you in 2011.
