Greetings from SVNIT, Surat...!!!!

Indian Geo-technical Society has been one of the very active societies and oldest among the Civil Engineering Disciplines. The society has been regularly conducting Annual Conference every year in December since 1950.The conference used to be known as IGS Conference which has been subsequently named as Indian Geo-Technical Conference(IGC).

The venue for conference is selected in different parts of the country every year. There is a good competition among local chapters to organize this conference. I am happy to inform that due to active role of Prof.C.H. Solanki and other colleagues at SVNIT, Surat, the IGC 2019 will be hosted by SVNIT, Surat. In the past, the conference was hosted at Surat in the year 1982 and 1991.

Surat is known for its food and industries particularly textiles, diamonds and other engineering giants like L&T,ONGC,Reliance,ESSAR etc.It is also one of the fastest growing city with good infrastructure and considered to be 4th Smart city in the country. Thus, the city offers number of interesting locations for technical site visit, heritage walk and shopping.
