Keynote Speakers Return For EuroGeo7

Distinguished experts set to address the EuroGeo7 conference have confirmed their commitment to return next year.

The Polish Chapter of the IGS, organizers of the largest regional conference on geosynthetics, were forced to move the event from September this year because of health and safety concerns over Covid-19. The conference is now due to take place on 16 – 19 May 2021, at the same venue of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland.

A fascinating lecture series with speakers including Professor Martin Ziegler and Dr Kerry Rowe will return, providing thought-provoking discussion. The line-up is:

  • Professor Martin Ziegler, RWTH Aachen University in Germany: ‘Mechanism of action of a geogrid reinforcement at macro and micro scale’.
  • Emeritus Professor Fumio Tatsuoka, Tokyo University: ‘Developments of geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures and their railway applications’.
  • Professor Jie Han, Kansas University: ‘Experimentally and mechanistically quantifying the benefits of geosynthetics in improved roadway performance’.
  • Dr Kerry Rowe, Queens University in Canada: ‘Geosynthetics: how can they help in hydraulic applications?’.

Organizers are working on a revised schedule and programme, with an updated calendar due to be posted on the conference website nearer the time.

EuroGeo7 chairman Jacek Kawalec said: “Our keynote speaker programme is an important and popular part of our conference schedule. We’re extremely pleased our guests will return next year to provide an indispensable experience for our delegates. It’s not to be missed!”
