The first chapter in this book addresses the birth of the Association in the early 60s. Geology in engineering applications was then an emerging and productive field in geosciences, and the absence of any engineering geology subjects in the contents of the 1964 International Geological Congress (IGC) set in motion the creation of the Association. Asher Shadmon, and a small group of distinguished colleagues, created a commission dedicated to the topic and later that year, the founding assembly of the IAEG and a provisional committee were created. The full story of the origins of the IAEG is presented in chapter 1.
