GeoMEast 2018 International Congress and Exhibition  "Sustainable Civil Infrastructures: Structural Integrity" @ Mena House Hotel

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to attend the GeoMEast 2018 International Congress and Exhibition to be held in Cairo, Egypt from November 24 to 28, 2018. The GeoMEast SERIES is managed by SSIGE and supported by a number of leading international professional organizations. 

Recent rapid construction in Egypt and the Middle East has provided great opportunities for bridge, pavement, geotechnical, geological, tunnel and all engineers to use their knowledge and talents to solve many challenging problems involving highways, bridge structures, pavements, materials, ground improvements, slopes, excavations, dams, canals and tunnels with innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies. 

GeoMEast 2018 will provide a showcase for recent developments and advancements in design, construction, and safety Inspections of transportation Infrastructures and offer a forum to discuss and debate future directions for the 21st century. Conference topics cover a broad array of contemporary issues for professionals involved in bridge, pavement, Geomechanics, geo-environmental, geotechnical, geosciences, geophysics, tunnel, water structures, railway and emerging techniques for safety inspections. You will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world for technical, scientific, and commercial discussions. 

The proceedings of GeoMEast 2018 will be published in some Edited Books in SUCI Book Series by Springer-DE, which will be indexed in EI and submitted for inclusion in ISI “Thomson Reuters”. In addition, some journal special issues will be published in some prestigious journals from selected best papers of the conference, however, authors need to expand and include materials that are at least 50:75% different than the accepted papers in the proceedings. 

GeoMEast 2018 will provide some awards; such as: best paper awards, best presenter awards, best student presenter awards, industrial project, and others. 

The program will include Podium Presentations, Poster Presentations, Keynote Lectures, Workshops, Courses, Awards, Technical Meetings, and Technical and Social Tours.

4th International Conference “Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions” @ Emperor Alexander I Petersburg State Transport University
May 20 – May 23 all-day
4th International Conference "Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions" @ Emperor Alexander I Petersburg State Transport University

The “cold regions” of the world cover large areas in the northern hemisphere, including Canada, Alaska, Finland, Norway, Sweden, vast portion of China and Russia, and all the northern tier of the United States. Cold regions cover 50% of the world’s total land area.
Transportation infrastructure in cold regions faces great technical challenges due to ground freeze-thaw or permafrost degradation. New transportation infrastructure on embankments, such as high-speed railways on slab tracks or highways, requires high geometry standards. Using of geosynthetics help to decide this problems.
The 4th conference “Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions” (TRANSOILCOLD2019) will be held 20-23 May, 2019 in S.Petersburg (Russia) to provide a broader look at the overall problems faced by designers, contractors, and infrastructure owners during planning and building of transport infrastructure in cold regions.

Conference programme includes Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium and Stabilization workshop.

Conference proceedings will be published and indexing by Scopus Citation Index.

7th ICEGE (International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering) @ Angelicum Congress
Jun 17 – Jun 20 all-day
7th ICEGE (International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering) @ Angelicum Congress

After the increasingly successful conferences held in Tokyo (1995), Lisbon (1999), Berkeley (2004), Thessaloniki (2007), Santiago (2011), and Christchurch (2015), the Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) on appointment by the ISSMGE Technical Committee 203 (‘Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and associated problems’) is delighted to announce that the city of Roma will host the 7th ICEGE (International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering) in June 2019.
As in the previous editions, the conference topics will address through general and parallel sessions the most recent developments in earthquake geotechnical engineering, stimulating fruitful technical and scientific interaction with the fields of seismology, geophysics, geology, structural and infrastructural engineering.
Among the various topics, there is also this one: Ground improvement, reinforced soil structures and geosynthetics, of particular interest for IGS members.
The ‘eternal city’ of Roma is one of the most attractive and symbolic venues in the world, thanks to its impressive cultural heritage, the pleasant weather, its extraordinary social life, not to mention the taste of the Italian food.
Transportation to and through Roma is very effective thanks to two International Airports, high-speed railways and underground city trains.
Roma can count on a variety of accommodation facilities to host the conference delegates, from Luxury hotels to B&Bs.
Pre- and/or post-conference events are also planned, including technical visits to sites affected by historical to most recent earthquakes.
Paper submission
On July 27, 2018 the results of almost 1.100 abstract reviews have been sent to all authors.
Authors are now invited to submit papers in due time, this will help to conclude the papers review avoiding delays of the whole editorial process.

 At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the conference. Papers without at least one registered author will not be published. Each registration fee allows to publish only one (1) manuscript. Additional accepted papers can be published with an extra paper fee of 100.00 Euros per manuscript. Accepted papers will be included in the digital conference proceedings, provided the registration fee, or paper fee is paid. Payments must be made online at the registration page. Registration will be enabled by September 2018.
 USB Card Proceedings will be published by CRC Press / Balkema, Taylor & Francis Group. Since we are aware of the importance, for academics and authors, of the indexing of their works, the Editor will send the Proceedings to the indexing services (Scopus, EI and Compendex).

Questions regarding the paper review process, sessions and the technical program should be directed to the 7ICEGE Organizing Committee at info@7icege.com

EuroGeo 7 - 7th European Geosynthetics Congress

We are pleased to invite you to the 7th EuroGeo conference, to be held in Warsaw, Poland in 2020. 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
