Dear Friends,

It is my great happiness to inform you that the 7th Asian Regional Conference on Geosynthetic and 2022 IGS ACC Young Engineers Conference (GeoAsia7) will be held on April 11-15 in 2022 at Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), Taipei, Taiwan. The main theme of the GeoAsia7 is Hazard’s Risk Management, Innovation, and Sustainability. Several subjects on modern geosynthetic technologies and activities will be covered up to match up the main theme. The 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 2022. As to the technical programs, social events, and other available information of the conference, please visit the conference website (geoasia7.org), we will keep it updated as the time comes.

Taiwan 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 to explore the beauty of nature within a short time. Taiwan is one of the safest places to visit. Taiwanese are friendly, kind-hearted, and helpful. Taiwanese are always ready to welcome you with great hospitality. In the end, with our open arms and warmest regards, it would be our pleasure to welcome you to experience this great event and enjoy the dynamics of Taiwan.

EuroGeo 7 - 7th European Geosynthetics Congress @ The Palace of Culture and Science

Due to the global development and concerns over the coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, EuroGeo7 Conference which was scheduled to take place from 19 to 22 September, 2021 in Warsaw, Poland, is now postponed until 4-7 September 2022.

The decision to postpone EuroGeo7 was made in the interest of the health and safety of everyone participating in the conference. The organisers of EuroGeo7 are working closely with partners and authorities and will announce a new schedule of extended deadlines shortly. Please keep visiting our website regularly.

The Organising Committee of EuroGeo7 thank you for your understanding.

We are pleased to invite you to the 7th EuroGeo conference, to be held in Warsaw, Poland in 2022. 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!

GeoAfrica 4 – 4th African Regional Conference on Geosynthetics
Feb 20 – Feb 23 all-day
GeoAfrica 4 - 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 2023. 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 20-23 February 2023.

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 January 1st, 2022.

Stay tuned for further updates. We look forward to hosting you in February 2023.
