Engineering Conferences International (ECI), in conjunction with the International Tunnelling Association (ITA), the Swiss Tunnelling Society (FGU) and several other European Associations is sponsoring the Shotcrete for Underground Support XI Conference. The conference will be held at the Davos Congress Center, Davos, Grisons, Switzerland from June 7 - 10, 2009.

This conference is the eleventh in a series of conferences on the theme of Shotcrete for Underground Support, that were sponsored by Engineering Foundation, predecessor of ECI. The first conference was held in South Berwick, Maryland, USA in 1973. The most recent five conferences on this theme were held in Uppsala, Sweden (1990); Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada (1993); Telfs, Austria (1995); Campos Do Jordao, Brazil (1999); Kyoto, Japan (2002); Whistler, Canada (2006). In 2009 the conference will be held again in Europe.

The main purpose of this conference is to bring together specialists from around the world, from industry, government and academia to present and discuss the latest state-of-the-art of shotcrete in general and shotcrete for underground support in particular. There is an increasing use of shotcrete in underground infrastructures as well as in mining and considerable technological progress has been made and is still made in this field. This conference provides a unique opportunity for presenting latest developments and case-history examples worldwide.
