5th International Conference on Geofoam Blocks in Construction Applications (EPS’18) @ Elexus Hotel Resort & Spa
May 9 – May 11 all-day

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.

17th European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering @ HARPA
Sep 1 – Sep 6 all-day

ISSMGE LogoThe Icelandic Geotechnical Society will host the XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in Reykjavik, Iceland 1 – 6 September 2019.

The theme of the Conference is: “Geotechnical Engineering, foundation of the future.”

The theme of the conference embraces all aspects of geotechnical engineering.  Geotechnical engineering is the foundation of current as well as future societies, which both rely on complex civil engineering infrastructures, and call for mitigation of potential geodangers posing threat to these. Geotechnical means and solutions are required to ensure infrastructure safety and sustainable development. Those means are rooted in past experiences enhanced by research and technology of today.

At great events such as the European Geotechnical Conference we should:  Spread our knowledge and experience to our colleagues; Introduce innovations, research and development of techniques and equipment; Report on successful geotechnical constructions and application of geotechnical design methods, as well as, on mitigation and assessment of geohazards and more.

Such events also provide an opportunity to draw the attention of others outside the field of geotechnical engineering to the importance of what we are doing, particularly to those who, directly or indirectly, rely on our services, knowledge and experience. Investment in quality geotechnical work is required for successful and safe design, construction and operation of any infrastructure. Geotechnical engineering is the key to a safe and sustainable infrastructure and of importance for the society, economy and the environment. This must be emphasized and reported upon.
