About this funder:



The Roy J. Shlemon Specialty Conference Fund supports specialty and advanced practice conferences of interest to the members of the Association of Engineering and Environmental Geologists. The goal of a Shlemon Conference is to bring together specialists from academia and the consulting world for several days of intensive state-of-the-science sessions, workshops, and field trips devoted to discussion of current knowledge of emerging scientific, technical, regulatory, and practice issues and challenges.

Emerging issues may involve novel investigative and analytical techniques, some of which may be controversial or unproven. Presentations and discussions of new approaches to site characterization and regulatory trends are appropriate. A primary characteristic of Shlemon Conferences is that they are held in locations where field observations can be combined with the subject matter of the conference. experts and practitioners to present and The spirit of the conferences is to develop agreement on applicable knowledge, and to advance the practice techniques applied to evolving challenges, with the goal of better and more reliable results. To make the conference expertise available to a wider practitioner and public audience, the conference proceedings are published on CD.
