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 March 15, 2022.
Stay tuned for further updates. We look forward to hosting you in February 2023.
