In addition to the technical papers from Brazil and Latin America, promising to repeat the success of the 4 th Congress, which took place in 2017, conferences of renowned national and international experts will be given, debates on current issues will be held, in addition to the exhibition of products, services and equipment, and technical visits.

A period is also being reserved for carrying out a refresher and training tunneling short course, given by renowned Brazilian and international tunneling engineering professionals.

The Organization of the 5 th CBT counts on the active and motivated participation of the Brazilian and Latin American technical community in order to bring an excellent exchange of experiences and knowledge to the Congress, in addition to an outstanding networking for all participants.

The Brazilian Tunneling Committee, which is part of the Brazilian Association of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ABMS), is pleased to invite the entire technical community to engage now, by registering and submitting abstracts for the 5 th CBT, which should occur in a moment of upturn in the infrastructure areas, with the return of investments in urban mobility projects and works, as well as in the energy, mining and sanitation, oil and gas segments, among others.
