The Piling 2020 conference that was due to be held at Durham University on the 15th and 16th September 2020 has been postponed until the 25th and 26th March 2021 due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

It is intended to publish the conference proceedings in advance of the Conference. The date of publication will be in early December 2020. Authors will be contacted by email and advised of the deadline for finalising their papers.

The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) with support from the Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) will be hosting a major international conference on Piling in Durham. This follows on from the highly successful Chalk 2018 conference organised by the BGA and is the second of a series of biennial conferences that the BGA intend to organize.

There has not been a conference related specifically to piling for a number of years but recently there have been many technical developments in the field related to offshore and onshore projects namely the development of offshore wind farms and major infrastructure projects.

With the amount of work currently underway, it is appropriate to focus on this topic and to bring together the knowledge and experience gained in recent years. We are looking to obtain input from researchers and practitioners with the aim of sharing their experiences to develop new and novel solutions.

In addition to conference papers (which will be published in formal proceedings), there will be a series of authoritative keynote lectures on important aspects of Piling. There will also be a conference dinner in the conference programme.

Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities will be available.
