What You Can Expect

India is considered to have one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and the government of India is working towards a double digit growth rate. Infrastructure development will be the prime activity for growth over the next few decades, and foundation technologies will contribute immensely to the acceleration of construction. It’s imperative for all stakeholders in the foundation industry to meet as often as possible to review these technologies and devise ways and means for their implementation in projects for the benefit of all. The DFI-India 2017: 7th Conference on Deep Foundations Technologies for Infrastructure Development in India is a perfect opportunity for collaboration.

About the Event

The event starts with a one-day workshop on Mass Soil Stabilization and Deep Soil Mixing followed by a two-day technical program with keynote lectures by invited experts and presentations by authors of accepted abstracts on deep foundations, deep excavations and ground improvement featuring presentations of practical importance showcasing latest technologies in the areas of geotechnical investigation, analysis and design including seismic aspects, treated soil properties, computer software, tele-networking, instrumentation, testing, monitoring, installation/construction equipment and methods, with supporting data on improvement of quality, productivity, safety and sustainability.

The event will be of interest to contractors, developers, agencies, designers, consultants, educators and representatives from local, state and central government and public and private sector organizations.
