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!

Dear Friends,
It is my great happiness to inform you that the 7th Asian Regional Conference on Geosynthetics (GeoAsia7) will be held on November 22-26 2021 at the Taipei International Conference Center (TICC), Taipei, Taiwan. The main theme of GeoAsia7 is Hazard’s Risk Management, Innovation, and Sustainability. Several subjects on modern geosynthetic technologies and activities will be covered to encompass the main theme. GeoAsia7 is organized by the Chinese Taipei Chapter of the International Geosynthetics Society.

As the Chairman of the GeoAsia7 Organizing Committee, I cordially welcome your participation and kind support at this coming event in 2021. As to the technical programs, social events, and other available information of the conference, please visit the conference website (http://www.geoasia7.org/), we will keep it frequently updated.

Taiwan, the hosting country, is located in the geographical center of East Asia. With frequent flights, it is conveniently reached from most of the Asian cities. During the conference, all the guests can experience some of the finest Chinese cuisine, bustling nightlife (24-hour convenient stores, Internet cafes, restaurants, bars and night markets), efficient transportation that brings visitors exploring the beauty of nature within a short time.

GeoAfrica 2021 – 4th African Regional Conference on Geosynthetics
Feb 21 – Feb 24 all-day
GeoAfrica 2021 - 4th African Regional Conference on Geosynthetics

The International Geosynthetic Society in Egypt (IGSE) is pleased to announce that the 4th African Regional Conference on Geosynthetics shall take place in Cairo, Egypt in 2022. As a newly formed chapter of IGS, we are excited to initiate our activities with this important regional conference as a seed for future activities of IGSE. We are eager to host this event and look forward to regional and international participation from academics, consultants, producers, contractors, and project owners. The main aim of the conference is to engage regional and international experts to raise awareness of technical advances, participate in joint activities, exchange experiences, and build bridges. The event shall be held at one of the most inviting locations along the river Nile in Cairo. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the conference dates have been postponed from the original dates in October 2021 to 21-24 February 2022.

The use of geosynthetics in infrastructures and mega projects has immensely increased in Egypt and the region in recent years. Projects including major expansions of highways and railroads in challenging soil conditions, new cities and urban centers, industrial and commercial zones, ports, tank farms, landfills, mine tailings, and major utilities have seen extensive use of geosynthetic products in various applications. We have therefore chosen a conference theme to be “Geosynthetics in Sustainable Infrastructures and Mega Projects”.

We are pleased to announce that abstract submission is open. The deadline for abstract submission is 15 November, 2020.

Stay tuned for further updates. We look forward to hosting you in February 2022.

12th International Conference on Geosynthetics – 12 ICG @ Auditorium Parco della Musica

The conference topics will address through general and parallel sessions the most recent developments in geosynthetics, stimulating fruitful technical and scientific interaction within professionals. We believe that 12th ICG will provide an excellent opportunity to present recent experience and developments to an audience of engineers, geologists and consultants, public and private contractors, local national and international authorities, and to all those involved in research and practice related to geosynthetics.
