GeoAfrica Abstract Deadline Extended

Share your ideas, work and passion for geosynthetics on a world stage by submitting your papers to GeoAfrica 2023.

One of the region’s largest conferences on geosynthetics has extended its deadline for abstracts to March 15, 2022.

Hosted by the Egyptian chapter of the IGS, the 4th African Regional Conference on Geosynthetics is due to take place in Cairo, Egypt, on February 20-23, 2023. Themed ‘‘Geosynthetics in sustainable infrastructures and mega projects’, the event aims to explore the region’s increasing use of geosynthetics in major programs including utilities, highways, railways, industrial and commercial zones, and tank farms.

The program will also include keynote lectures, workshops, a technical tour to a megaproject and a Young Engineers session. Keynote speakers and venue will be announced in April.

Mohamed Salah, the event’s Secretary General, said: “GeoAfrica 2023 will bring together experts in geosynthetics from all over the world to share with each other the latest advances in this vibrant field both in practice and research. It is a great opportunity for individuals interested in geosynthetics applications to attend especially that Egypt is now working on mega infrastructure projects that involve using geosynthetics.”

The considerable geosynthetic development opportunities in the region was earlier showcased when Egypt was the focus of the IGS Technical Committee on Hydraulics’ (TC-H) canals webinar series. Led by TC-H chairman Eric Blond, the three-day event explored the hydraulic applications that could support the major canal upgrade program the country is currently undergoing.
