14th Global Joint Seminar on Geo-Environmental Engineering

May 21st—22nd, 2015 at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.

The 14th Global Joint Seminar on Geo-Environmental Engineering will be taking place on May 21st—22nd, 2015 at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec.

Montreal, originally known as Ville-Marie (City of Mary), is the second largest city in Canada and was named after the Mount– Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. It was recently selected as one of the five global hubs for Future Earth, and Concordia University will be housing the local secretariat that will bring together researchers from several Quebec universities to contribute to this major international scientific initiative.

The objective of GEE is to provide an international forum for the exchange of ideas and recent advances in the field of geo-environmental engineering and to give students and young re-searchers the opportunity to present their works to an interna-tional and expert audience. GEE has been held annually in Japan, Korea and France since its inception in 2001.
