The first Pan-American Congress of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering was held in Mexico in 1959. In November 2019 it will return to our country; with the Mexican Caribbean as its headquarters. Cancun is recognized worldwide for its natural beauty, first class tourist infrastructure and important and attractive archaeological sites.
On this occasion, the 5th International Deep Foundations Symposium will be held in parallel with the joint collaboration of the Geo Institute (ASCE) and the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI). It is worth mentioning that, within the activities, more than 10 technical sessions are planned with the participation of specialists from all over America and the rest of the world, as well as pre-congress courses of great interest to professional practice and the Arthur Casagrande Conference.
On the part of the Organizers, we extend a friendly invitation to the international engineering community, in order to establish the problems, challenges and solutions facing this engineering sector.
