The International Conference on Information Technology in Geo-Engineering will be held in Durham, UK on 21-22 July 2014.  The conference follows the successful first conference held in Shanghai in 2010.

The conference is intended to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in information technology applied to geotechnical engineering, engineering geology and geo-environmental engineering.

Keynetix are delighted that we have been chosen to present two papers at the conference on both “The Geotechnical Data Journey – How the Way we View Data is Being Transformed” and “The Real Life Benefits of Geotechnical Building Information Modelling”.

Phil Child will present “The Geotechnical Data Journey – How the Way We View Data is Being Transformed”.  In 1998 ‘The Geotechnical Data Journey’ laid out a work flow to aid the efficiency of the site investigation reporting process.  This essentially represented a digital version of a previously ‘paper driven’ process.  However, developments in technology and from elsewhere suggest that a more evolved process is required to suit the current requirements of industry.  Here Phil will discuss how the geotechnical data journey must be reviewed and refined for the present day.

Gary Morin will present “The Real Life Benefits of Geotechnical Building Information Modelling”.  The basic premise of BIM is for organisations to collaborate and share information through the whole project, from initial conception, design, build and maintenance but what this translates to, how it is achieved and what the benefits are is not clear to a number of geotechnical consultants.  Here Gary will explore what BIM means to the geotechnical industry by looking at real world examples of geotechnical involvement in BIM.
