HELLENIC GEOSYNTHETICS SOCIETY (HGS) ACTIVITY REPORT

The 8th National Conference on Geotechnical Engineering was very successfully held in Athens, 6-8 November 2019 with the participation of 388 persons, including a very large percentage of students (133 in total). Among the 18 different sessions, two were directly associated to “Reinforced embankments and Geosynthetics, Soil Improvement”.
