On Wednesday, June 8, there will be a plenary (combined) session of presentations on a variety of technical topics. Two parallel sessions on Thursday, June 9, will provide providing attendees the option to choose presentations of interest. Invited and selected presentations will highlight advancements, innovations and challenges in design and construction of deep foundations, particularly related to piling solutions. Presentations local to the Chicago-metropolitan area, along with national, and international case histories, are encouraged.
