Call for Content

The Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA) is pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts / Case Studies / Topic & Presentation suggestions for the upcoming Annual Design & Installation of Cost-Efficient Piles (DICEP) Conferences, PDCA Annual Conferences, or virtual webinars.

The PDCA Annual International Conference & Expo is the member's conference and is held in early February. The conference is held over 2.5 days and typically a variety of topics to interest all member types. 

The DICEP Conference is PDCA's technical conference for engineers held toward the middle of September. The agenda format is typically 1.5 days with presentations ranging from 30 minutes to an hour in length, with a focus on the cost effectiveness and design specifications for driven piles in deep foundations.

The PDCA webinar series is intended to bring various information to PDCA members and others within the driven pile industry. Throughout the year, webinars are held to highlight driven pile projects, the value and cost savings of driven piles, manufacturing and supplier updates, PDCA Committee information, safety practices, and more. Webinar topic suggestions can be technical, case based, and/or promotional.

Varied presentation lengths will be considered for all PDCA education & webinar offerings and will be determined based on presentation flow, content relevance, and PDH requirements.

Click to Submit

PDCA's intention is to make the process for submitting abstracts/cases/topics/presentations as simple as possible to allow for both technical and non-technical presenters to have an opportunity for submission. 

As submissions are received, the Education Committee reviews and selects those presentations that best represent the conference theme for the PDCA Annual Conference & DICEP Conference. Non-selected abstracts are kept on file with the PDCA for a full year with potential for alternative use in publications, member website resources, and other PDCA materials.

*Submissions become eligible content for future PDCA publications, if the submitter desires, but this is not a requirement.
