The 2020 Southwest Geotechnical Engineering Conference has been postponed.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, a number of state and federal agencies, and organizations nationwide have curtailed their travel and large gatherings to protect the health of our colleagues.

The SWGEC Conference has decided to postpone the 2020 SWGEC Conference to April or May 2021 in Texas, pending confirmation of dates and venue location. We will keep you informed about a future date and location, once it is finalized. 
If you paid online, all refunds have been processed and funds should reach your account this week. If you paid by check, please expect a check to reach you within the next few weeks. If you need a receipt of the refund, or have additional questions, please contact Emily Wilder at
Please know that we were very much looking forward to our annual SWGEC Conference and postponing this event was not an easy decision to make. But your health and safety is our top priority. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sean Yoon at email  (
Thank you for your continued trust and patience.
