Offshore Site Investigation & Geotechnics Committee 8th International Conference “Smarter Solutions for Future Offshore Developments”

12 – 14 September, 2017

Including: ISSMGE 4th Bramlette McClelland Lecture 
Special Issue of EAGE Near Surface Geophysics Journal 
Conference Dinner at the Natural History Museum

The SUT’s Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics (OSIG) committee is pleased to announce that its 8th international conference, ‘Smarter Solutions for Future Offshore Developments’, will take place on 12th to 14th September 2017 at the historic Royal Geographical Society in South Kensington, London.

About the conference

The conference series, which has run since 1979, offers a unique opportunity for geotechnical engineers, geoscientists and academics specialising in offshore topics to share their knowledge and experience. In addition to hosting the prestigious Bramlette McClelland Lecture, the 2017 conference will focus on new research and developments in site investigation data acquisition, evaluation and integration, geotechnical analysis and design as well as field operational experience. A special issue of the EAGE Near Surface Geophysics journal will be published preceding the conference with selected papers to be presented in a dedicated session. Our aim is to expand significantly the boundaries of  knowledge and practice in offshore geotechnics and geoscience and their complementary nature.

The challenge for discussion

The challenges currently faced by the offshore oil & gas industry call for innovative approaches to improve efficiency and rigour in practice, while the offshore renewable energy industry has identified and addressed, through major research programmes, key technical issues that must be solved to support its growing strength. High profile international incidents have also occurred across all sectors in recent years that pose significant data acquisition, engineering and operational challenges.

Call for papers

We have received over 280 quality papers that report on the above topics and other developments, set out new research findings and present innovative ideas as to how the sector can improve efficiency, develop more collaborative approaches and offer innovation towards Smarter Solutions for Future Offshore Developments.
