ARC13 is co-organized by Society for Rock Mechanics & Engineering Geology
(Singapore) and The Geological Society of Hong Kong. The organizers offer
an ideal opportunity and platform for professionals from the international
engineering geology community to exchange the latest experiences and ideas
on engineering geology, particularly on the conference theme “Engineering
Geology for Sustainable Resource and Infrastructure Development”. In addition
to the technical programs, we will organize short courses, workshops, technical
visits, exhibitions, as well social programs. We will also offer attractive
programs for young researchers and students, such as Young Engineering Geologist Session.
In 2019, Singapore released an underground masterplan that maps out the underground space and its potential use. Singapore thus has great needs for resource and infrastructure development, which is well supported by high-level research from the industry and academia. Singapore is much more than the sum of its numerous attractions. It’s constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, with people who are passionate about creating new possibilities. It’s where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socializers meet – and new experiences are created every day.
We look forward to welcoming all of you in Singapore for ARC13 on 16 to 18 Nov 2021.
Local Organizing Committee of ARC13
The Asian Regional Conference (ARC) of International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG) started in 1997 in Japan, and has become the premium engineering geology event in Asia and the international engineering geology community. It is held once every two years and hosted by an Asian member nation of the IAEG. Countries that have hosted the ARC include China, Korea, Japan, India, Nepal, Indonesia, and Malaysia. ARC 12 in 2019 in Jeju, Korea attracted about 500 participants. ARC 13 is the first time of the ARC series held in Singapore. As Singapore pushes for more use of underground space, engineering geology becomes increasingly more important to meet the need for more such engineering capabilities.
