The IGS Roorkee chapter has always been active since its inception and contributing in the area of Geotechnical Engineering. IGS Roorkee chapter hosted the Indian Geotechnical Conferences in 1985, 2003, and 2013. The chapter has been again entrusted with the task of organizing 2023 which will be organized in association with IIT Roorkee and CSIR-CBRI Roorkee.
