Special Keynote Speaker: Evert Hoek

The Slope Stability 2022 Symposium is delighted to announce that Evert Hoek will deliver the dinner keynote address on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, sharing his experiences at Chuquicamata, one of the world’s largest open pit mines.

Evert Hoek is a world-renowned contributor to the fields of engineering geology and rock mechanics. He has contributed to academia as a graduate researcher and professor, has worked in industry, and has been a member of numerous civil and mining engineering consulting boards. He is perhaps best known for his contributions in estimating the strength of jointed rock-masses with the Hoek-Brown Criterion and Geological Strength Index (GSI), but has contributed to countless other understandings, techniques, and methodologies for the analysis of the behavior of rock as an engineering material.

With just over a year to go before the start of the symposium, the organizing committee is working hard to put together a thoughtful and informative program. Stay tuned for more exciting news over the next several weeks.
