The American Exploration & Mining Association’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, held the first week of December, is the preeminent and second-largest annual mining convention in the United States. AMEA’s convention consists of short courses, technical, legislative and policy sessions, and a 250 booth trade exposition. Sessions emphasize mineral deposits, exploration and development, operations, business and finance, environmental technology, regulation and policy and legislative affairs. The meeting has been held every year since 1895, and attracts more than 2,500 attendees from all over the world.

The 5th International Conference on Geofoam Blocks in Construction Applications (EPS’18) which will be held in Kyrenia, Northern Cyprus on May 09 – 11, 2018.
Geofoam researchers, consultants, molders, contractors and practitioners from all around the world will be meeting in Kyrenia to discuss the recent developments and future trends of the expanded polystyrene (EPS)-block geofoam technology and its construction applications. EPS’18 will continue to contribute to the development of the geofoam applications after successful Oslo (1985), Tokyo (1996), Salt Lake City (2001) and Oslo (2011) conferences.
We are honored to dedicate the proceedings of EPS’18 to Mr. Tor Erik Frydenlund and Mr. Geir Refsdal who were the pioneers of the development of geofoam technology. They have implemented the use of geofoam as a lightweight fill material in Norway and also involve in the dissemination of the technology to other countries.
The conference program will be a combination of technical papers and group discussions regarding the use, new development and implementation of geofoam technology. The conference theme will cover but not limited to the present use of geofoam, design specifications, applications, new concepts, material properties, modeling and special topics of geofoam blocks in construction applications.

Extended versions of selected papers of 11 ICG will be published in a special issue of Geotextiles and Geomembranes, an official Journal of the International Geosynthetics Society.
ABOUT 11 ICG
The International Conference on Geosynthetics is held every four years. It is the global gathering point for members of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS). The conference was last held in Berlin, Germany in September 2014. In 2018, the Korean Geosynthetics Society (KGSS)—a chapter of the IGS—will host 11 ICG.
