Both workshops will be held at Munich Workstyle, a conference and office center located across from Munich’s main train station. It is also located close to the Best Western Atrium Hotel, where the IGS has organized a room block. For best rates, book by 3 April 2018. Reservations for the IGS allotment can only be made by Phone: +49 (0) 89 51 41 90, or by Email: Mention “IGS” when booking.

GeoReinforcement Workshop Cost: 180€/person
GeoBarrier Workshop Cost: 180€/person

Hotel Cost: 114€/night (includes breakfast) when reserved by 3 April 2018

The IGS welcomes the world’s civil and geotechnical engineers to this unique gathering. Share your project experience, learn from some of the most-renowned researchers and engineers in the global geosynthetics field, and network with colleagues who influence diverse sectors such as mining, coal ash, transportation engineering, MSE design, waste management, and more.

Each workshop will be divided into major topics and will focus on very recent technical developments and emerging technical issues. This format means that presenters will not prepare written contributions to be compiled in proceedings; instead they will share presentation slides with attendees. Time may be allocated in each section for attendees to share short statements (single-slide presentations) from the floor. An emphasis is placed on discussion. This interactivity will help propel conversation among colleagues, enhance the topical depth of the gathering, and ensure that region-specific concerns can be addressed. The format will make the overall workshops’ knowledge more ready to implement and foster stronger connections for attendees.

Attendees interested in contributing to the open forum portion should consult the workshop details for applicable deadlines for supplying a slide (optional) and informing a session’s moderator or a workshop organizer of your interest in contributing. Download the PDF brochure for full program information and session moderator and workshop organizer contact details.

Geosynthetics Events: 11 ICGThe 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics (11 ICG) will be held 16 – 21 September 2016 in Seoul, Korea at the new COEX (Conference and Exhibition Center) in the city’s renowned Gangnam District. Conference  theme: “Geosynthetics: Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Development.”

Key topics include:

  • Sustainability and Green Technology with Geosynthetics
  • Geosynthetic Barriers
  • Geosynthetics in Filtration, Drainage and Erosion Control
  • Reinforced Walls and Slopes
  • Ground Improvement Using Geosynthetics
  • Roads, Railways and Other Transportation Applications
  • Soil-Geosynthetic Interaction
  • Hydraulic Applications
  • Innovative Uses and New Developments
  • Cases Histories
  • Durability and Long Term Performance
  • Physical and Numerical Analysis
  • Geosynthetics Properties and Testing
  • Quality Control and Quality Assurance
  • Design Approaches and Other 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.


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.

Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available.
