EuroGeo6 – 6th European Geosynthetics Congress
6th EUROPEAN GEOSYNTHETICS CONGRESS
25-28 September 2016 – LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA
We of the Turkish Chapter of IGS have decided to relocate the 6th European Geosynthetics Conference, held on September 25-28, 2016, in the unique city of Ljubljana. After Maastricht (1996), Bologna (2000), Munich (2004), Edinburgh (2008) and Valencia (2012), the profession will convene in Slovenia.
Congress Venue will be the Gospodarsko Razstavišče – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre, located in a central region. Ljubljana is situated in a location that international airlines may easily. For More information; http://www.ljubljanafair.com/ and https://www.visitljubljana.com/en/visitors/.
Naturally, the main excitement of the Conference will be in its technical contributions. Undoubtedly, the time period between now and 2016 will bring new materials and reforms to the geosynthetics industry; all of these developments will be well reflected in the scientific program of the EuroGeo6 Conference.
We are looking forward to seeing academicians, manufacturers, practitioners and designers in the geosynthetics field at EuroGeo6. We want to extend a special invitation to engineers in general contracting firms, who will widely benefit from the Conference by learning more about the extraordinary financial and technical advantages geosynthetics provide. In an environment where the number of “Design-Build” and “Build-Operate-Transfer” types of contracts all around the world is multiplying, passing on such information to general contractors becomes of great importance. Turkey has a powerful contracting industry, active not only in Turkey but on an International level, which will be used as leverage in this direction.
As the months leading up to the Conference unfold, you will be provided with more information. We can guarantee that the EuroGeo6 Conference in 2016 will be an opportunity for all who attend to experience a valuable technical program, a magnificent city, and warm Turkish hospitality.
