Make A Date In Your Diary With IGS

The IGS is gearing up to deliver an eclectic series of global events this year.

From barriers to dams, containment to landslides, we have a range of diversely themed conferences, events and symposiums to inspire and educate.

Activities for IGS’s Young Members are at the forefront of our planning, with competitions, a chance to present student papers, and job opportunities.

Highlights this year include a packed programme at GeoAmericas 2020, the 4th PanAmerican Conference on Geosynthetics, from April 26-29 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and EuroGeo7 – the 7th European Geosynthetics Conference – in Warsaw, Poland, in September.

New events are being added to the calendar all the time so remember to regularly check it here.
