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.
Lecturer / Senior Lecturer or Reader in Ground Engineering, Engineering Geology or Geotechnics – University of Glasgow (UK)
University of Glasgow (UK), James Watt School of Engineering
Applications for the post are welcome in any research areas in ground engineering, engineering geology or geotechnics including but not limited to sustainable and novel geomaterials, smart infrastructure, and the applications of geology and geotechnics to problems in renewable energy and sustainability that complement the existing strengths within the School. The post-holder will develop, lead and sustain research of international standard in Engineering and contribute to teaching, assessment, project supervision and curriculum design at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; and participate in School management and organisation.
The post is permanent and full-time.

Sustainable conservation of UNESCO and other heritage sites through proactive geosciences, 10-12 December 2019
The Symposium will be organised during the period of 10 – 12 December 2019 by Embassy of ltaly in Egypt. It will take place in an exclusive cruise on the Nile between Luxor (check-in 9th of December) and Assuan (check-out 13th of December).
The Symposium is mainly addressed (not exclusively) to Conservators and Managers of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and of Monuments and Sites in general, as well as experts of Engineering Geology in general, who will benefit from case studies worldwide. It is organised in sessions covering the innovation and advances in science and technology on geohazards mitigation in heritage sites from all over the world, showing case studies and sharing similar approaches in various climatic and hazardous contexts.
Abstract submission: 15 October 2019
Notification of acceptance: 25 October, 2019
Submission of full paper: 30 November, 2019

Il Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile, Edile e Ambientale dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II organizza la prima Mediterranean PhD School. L’evento si terrà nelle aule della Scuola Politecnica e delle Scienze di Base a Piazzale Tecchio, dal 7 al 12 ottobre 2019.
La Mediterranean PhD School 2019 verterà sul tema: ”Impacts of Climate Change and Sustainable Engineering Responses” e tratterà le risposte che l’ingegneria civile può dare in termini di adattamento e mitigazione dei cambiamenti climatici. Le lezioni saranno tenute da 22 relatori di fama internazionale provenienti da vari paesi europei e da alcuni docenti del Dipartimento. Per la geotecnica i relatori sono i proff. Alonso, Leung, Mancuso, Pagano, Picarelli, Pirone, Romero.

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.
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
