3rd European Regional Conference of IAEG (3rd EUROENGEO2020) @ Aegli Zappiou
Sep 20 – Sep 24 all-day
3rd European Regional Conference of IAEG (3rd EUROENGEO2020) @ Aegli Zappiou

The 3rd EUROENGEO2020 is announced for 20-24 September 2020! The 3rd European Regional Conference of IAEG will be hosted in Athens, Greece, by the IAEG National Group of Greece. The conference will take place from 20th to 24th of September 2020. A European regional conference of IAEG was decided in the last council in South Korea. The activation again of the IAEG regional conference in Europe is a fundamental action for our region. Unfortunately, since the regional conference of IAEG in Europe has been inactive for almost 12 years, we do not have the chance to meet in our region often (the last was five years ago in Torino). Considering that almost half of the members and National Groups (NGs) of IAEG are from European region, we hope that the initiative will become a stable event, involving the scientific and professional community of the same area. The conference will be organized with the collection of extensive abstracts in order to reduce the complexity of the event due to the limited time. More details about the 3rd European Regional Conference will be available in few days on the conference website. It is our pleasure also to announce that the Executive Office and Council of IAEG for 2020 will be hosted in the occasion of the conference in Athens. The next Richard Wolters Prize competition for 2020 will be moreover presented by IAEG at the occasion of the conference.

GeoAmericas 2020 – 4th Pan-American Conference On Geosynthetics
Oct 26 – Oct 29 all-day

After been held in Mexico in 2008, Peru in 2012 and the USA in 2016, GeoAmericas comes to Brazil in its 4th edition, which will be held in October 2020 in Rio de Janeiro.  In addition to a rich technical program focused on the most relevant topics for the technical community of geosynthetics today, several social events and a wide area available for technical exhibits for the geosynthetic industry will be offered. English is the official language, but activities in Spanish and Portuguese will also compose the event’s program. We anticipate over 1,000 participants from more than 30 countries, which ensures both broad representativeness and a plurality of cultures and markets.

EuroGeo 7 – 7th European Geosynthetics Congress
May 16 – May 19 all-day
EuroGeo 7 - 7th European Geosynthetics Congress

We are pleased to invite you to the 7th EuroGeo conference, to be held in Warsaw, Poland in 2021. Poland is a country with more than a thousand years of recorded history and has a strong European identity. The country was first to free itself from communist domination in 1989 and is now fully democratic and a member of the European Union. Poland is a leader in infrastructure development in the region, which has resulted in many extraordinary projects. Warsaw, with its central location, is an ideal base for exploring the country. Today, the city is a dynamic cultural and business centre, with strong links not only to Western Europe but also to the East. PSG-IGS, a Polish Chapter of IGS is young but thriving organization successfully cooperating with several chapters within Central Europe. It is an honour to host such a prestigious conference in Warsaw and We sincerely believe that the sessions will prove to be a success. Come to Warsaw, bring your family and enjoy your stay in our capital and help us to make this Conference not only scientifically profitable but also an unforgettable event.

We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw!
