Hawthorne, N.J. (February 13, 2024): Join more than 1,000 geotechnical professionals this fall at DFI’s 49th Annual Conference on Deep Foundations (DFI49), being held October 7–10, at Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado. Registration is open to attend, exhibit and sponsor the conference at www.dfi-events.org/dfi49.

The goal of this international conference is to create a forum for discussion and knowledge exchange among industry professionals, government agencies and academia on the challenges and solutions related to its theme, Water – Resiliency – Infrastructure. To achieve this goal, the conference features two concurrent technical tracks. One track will cover traditional topics on deep foundations, ground improvement, ground treatment, excavation support, slope stabilization, tunneling rehabilitation, and related technologies and applications. The other is a water track covering topics from seepage control and remediation, groundwater, wastewater, contaminated water, surface water, flood control, storage and conveyance, rehabilitation of existing water infrastructure, coastal rehabilitation, and more.

Topics common to both tracks are data management; subsurface investigation; risk management; sustainability; resiliency; geo-hazards; testing and quality control/quality assurance; international, national, state and local codes; workforce development; equipment and material innovations; project delivery; as well as case histories covering lessons learned plus regional, national and international projects. 

In addition to a robust technical program, the conference will include keynote lectures; the Hal Hunt Lecture on Communications; the Outstanding Project Award presentation; paper competition presentations; the Manufacturers, Suppliers and Service Providers Committee’s tradeshow expo sessions; a welcome reception; the Women in Deep Foundations (WiDF) networking reception; the awards banquet; student activities program; and more than 150 exhibitors featuring new and innovative products and services.
