12th International Conference on Geosynthetics: Abstract submission deadline extended to February 28, 2021

 

The Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) and the Italian Chapter of IGS (AGI-IGS) invite you to attend the 12th International Conference on Geosynthetics, 12 ICG, which will be held in Roma, Italy, from 18 to 22 September 2022.
The geosynthetics and geotechnical engineering community has reached full awareness over the last two decades, and the whole geosynthetics industry has focused on the sustainable use of geosynthetics in a variety of innovative as well as consolidated applications.
Hence 12 ICG intends to become the base for the next step and the conference theme will be: Geosynthetics, Leading the Way to a Resilient Planet.

Abstract submission deadline extended to February 28, 2021

The Organizing Committee of 12th International Conference on Geosynthetics (12 ICG) invites all geotechnical and geosynthetics professionals and academics to submit abstracts. For information please visit the web-sitehttps://www.12icg-roma.org/

12th International Conference on Geosynthetics, 18 to 22 September 2022

With great pleasure and honour the Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) and the Italian Chapter of IGS (AGI-IGS) invite you to attend the 12th International Conference on Geosynthetics, 12 ICG, which will be held in Roma, Italy, from 18 to 22 September 2022.
The geosynthetics and geotechnical engineering community has reached full awareness over the last two decades, and the whole geosynthetics industry has focused on the sustainable use of geosynthetics in a variety of innovative as well as consolidated applications. After Sustainability, the ability to overcome the natural events effects, often related to climate change, and human activities forced to refer to a new keyword: Resiliency.
Hence 12 ICG intends to become the base for the next step and the conference theme will be: Geosynthetics, Leading the Way to a Resilient Planet.
The conference topics will address, through general and parallel sessions, keynote lectures and invited presentation, the most recent developments in geosynthetics, stimulating fruitful technical and scientific interaction among academicians, professionals, manufacturers, students.

CREST2020 – 1st International Symposium on Construction Resources for Environmentally Sustainable Technologies – March 10-12, 2020, Fukuoka (Japan)

The first International Symposium on Construction Resources for Environmentally Sustainable Technologies (CREST2020) will be held from March 10 to 12, 2020 in Fukuoka, Japan (Nishijin Plaza, Kyushu University).

The Organizing Committee calls for abstract  submissions. Abstracts must be submitted only via the online system of the symposium before September 15, 2019.

The purpose of this symposium is to disseminate information and exchange ideas on issues related to natural and man-made disasters, and to arrive at solutions through the use of alternative resources, towards building a sustainable and resilient society from geotechnical perspectives.
The symposium aims to bring together scientist, researchers, engineers and policy makers throughout the world under one umbrella for debate and discussion. The symposium will be focusing on sustainability, promotion of new ideas and innovations in design, construction and maintenance of geotechnical structures with aim of contributing towards climate change adaptation and disaster resiliency.

Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics for Sustainability at Delft University of Technology

Applications are invited for a Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics for Sustainability. The position is proposed to improve our understanding of the fundamental mechanical behaviour of soils undergoing ageing and cyclic environmental loads, and to provide new solutions to the present and future challenges of the built environment. The focus is on developing new experimental techniques and strategies to better understand and tune the response of soils to increasingly high (time-dependent and dynamic) loadings.

The closing date for applications is 1 September 2019
