Eastern Quebec Section offers regular lectures, on average one per month, on topics related to the practice and research in geotechnical engineering. These lectures are free and open to anyone interested in geotechnics. Training workshops are also organized on the occasion, usually in response to specific requests from the regional geotechnical community.

|Oct 28-30, 2013||Eastern Quebec||Laval University, Québec City, Canada||1st International Workshop on Landslides in Sensitive Clays|
The 1st International Workshop on Landslides in Sensitive Clays (IWLSC) aims to provide an international perspective of landslides in sensitive clays and their consequences by bringing together state-of-the-art contributions from international researchers in academia and in industry, as well as planners working on land-use and hazard mapping. The workshop will provide broad coverage of the scientific and engineering aspects of geo-hazards related to sensitive clays.
