CONFERENCE POSTPONED DUE TO Coronavirus Outbreak
Due to the current and continuing restrictions and limitations for mass gatherings and travel in order to lessen the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to postpone the upcoming DFI Deep Mixing Conference.
There is strong guidance and recommendations from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to limit travel and gatherings. Also, many attendee companies now have limited travel, while others have sought to reduce the risk to their employees by not allowing them to attend any type of event where there are large crowds.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and will be advising of our rescheduled dates as soon as the coronavirus outbreak is clear. Please stay tuned to www.dfi.org/DM2020 for details.
You may register for this Conference using a major Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal, Check or Purchase Order. Check payments should be made payable to DFI and are due within 30 days of registration and must be paid in full in advance of the conference dates.
DEEP FOUNDATIONS INSTITUTE
326 Lafayette Avenue
Hawthorne, NJ 07506
Deep mixing construction activity has increased markedly in many parts of the world, and the mixing technology has attained a permanent place in modern geotechnics, offering flexibility and competitive solutions of ground improvement and foundation engineering. Important advances in materials, equipment, process control, design, research and project delivery mechanisms have occurred since Deep Mixing 2015, held in San Francisco. Deep Mixing 2020 will provide a forum for international exchange of this new information. The technical program will include presentations on all aspects of current soil mixing technology, including contemporary research and lessons learned, and will provide a forum for discussion with all stakeholders (authorities, clients, contractors, consultants, researchers, equipment manufacturers and binder suppliers). Deep Mixing 2020 will also focus on defining the future of deep mixing and transferring the charge of advancing the industry to the next generation of practitioners, passing the torch.

Who Should Attend
Deep Mixing 2020 will gather design professionals, geotechnical and environmental engineers, contractors, researchers, material and equipment suppliers, and government agencies involved in the design and construction of deep mixing applications for foundation and excavation support, liquefaction mitigation, seepage control, and environmental stabilization.
Afternoon sessions will include parallel workshops of presentations chosen from over 150 abstracts from 30+ countries, allowing a wider forum of presenters and a deeper dive for participants into selected aspects of deep mixing, focusing on material properties, field performance, mixing equipment and installation process, modeling and design methods, quality control and quality assurance, environmental soil mixing, and lessons learned.
Plenary discussions will be held daily after the keynote lectures as forums for adding to the content and sharing ideas on how to advance practice.
