5th International Conference on Geofoam Blocks in Construction Applications (EPS’18)
May 9 – May 11 all-day
5th International Conference on Geofoam Blocks in Construction Applications (EPS’18)

Geofoam researchers, consultants, molders, contractors and practitioners from all around the world will be meeting in Kyrenia to discuss the recent developments and future trends of the expanded polystyrene (EPS)-block geofoam technology and its construction applications. EPS’18 will continue to contribute to the development of the geofoam applications after successful Oslo (1985), Tokyo (1996), Salt Lake City (2001) and Oslo (2011) conferences.

We are honored to dedicate the proceedings of EPS’18 to Mr. Tor Erik Frydenlund and Mr. Geir Refsdal who were the pioneers of the development of geofoam technology. They have implemented the use of geofoam as a lightweight fill material in Norway and also involve in the dissemination of the technology to other countries.

The conference program will be a combination of technical papers and group discussions regarding the use, new development and implementation of geofoam technology. The conference theme will cover but not limited to the present use of geofoam, design specifications, applications, new concepts, material properties, modeling and special topics of geofoam blocks in construction applications.

We look forward to welcoming you in Kyrenia on 09-11 May, 2018.
