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.

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.

Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available.

SEE THE CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS


On the event web page, the organziers write:

The building and civil engineering industries face challenges relating to climate change and the demand for energy and water conservation. However, they also seek to introduce new designs and applications.  To meet these challenges, they often require innovative waterproofing solutions offering not only better waterproofing durability but also an improved environmental footprint together with competitive new solutions for the speed, efficiency and cost of installation.  Waterproof Membranes 2018 will provide a global forum for open discussion of the latest solutions, technology, performance and market trends within bitumen, polymeric and liquid membranes across all waterproofing applications.
