The 3rd International Conference on Information Technology in Geo-Engineering (3rd ICITG) is organised in the framework of the activities of the Joint Technical Committee 2 (JTC2) on Representation of Geo-Engineering Data of the Federation of International Geo-Engineering Societies (FedIGS), by the Portuguese Geotechnical Society (SPG) and the University of Minho (UM). FedIGS, is an umbrella organization linking international professional societies in the field of “Geo‐Engineering”: ISSMGE International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, ISRM International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, IAEG International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment, IGS International Geosynthetics Society.
This conference aims to address the most updated developments in information communication and technologies in geo-engineering. It covers the application to laboratory and field tests, as well as the monitoring and survey of geo-structures. It embraces also intelligent geomaterials, intelligent construction and all the related aspects with design, construction and maintenance of geo-structures.
