18th International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering (ICCRE) and the 8th Canadian Permafrost Conference (CPC)

to Past Events

From August 19 to 21, 2019, the Québec City Convention Centre welcomes 18th International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering and the 8th Canadian Permafrost Conference 

The conference will include a wide variety of topics under the theme: “Sustainable infrastructure development in a changing cold environment”. Earth sciences, seasonally and perennially frozen soils, transportation infrastructure, structures, buildings and materials and water ice engineering will be the main topics for this conference.

Organized with the support of the Canadian Geotechnical Society, Québec Division – Cold Regions Section, the Permafrost Association of Canada, and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), ICCRE-CPC 2019 will highlight cutting-edge civil engineering research and the expertise of researchers at Université Laval.

This conference is being held thanks to a team led by civil engineer Guy Doré, a full professor in the Department of Civil and Water Engineering at Université Laval Faculty of Science and Engineering. Also holder of the NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Heavy Load, Climate and Pavement Interaction (i3C) at Université Laval, Professor Doré is internationally recognized for his work on pavement engineering in cold regions. In addition to his professional activities, this scientist in the Québec City Ambassadors’ Club is involved in organizing conferences and conventions.
