Valencia will be the host the 5th European Geosynthetics Congress organized by the Spanish Chapter of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS)

Professionals and students around the world will follow for the first time by ITAFEC’s online platform this European conference held in Spain.
From the 16th to 19th of September, 2012, Valencia will be the host of EuroGeo5, the 5th European Geosynthetics Congress organized by the Spanish Chapter of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) and with the collaboration of other institutions, both public and private. Due to the success of previous congresses, this fifth congress seeks to become an international benchmark forum on recent developments in the field of Geosynthetics. Opportunities for hands-on participation by the attending technicians with respect to the communication technology contributions are expected at this event. These sessions could be followed for the first time by the ITAFEC’s online platform (Institute of Advanced Techniques for Trade Shows, Events and Conferences, by the Spanish acronym).

The first day will be exclusively devoted to imparting a series of short courses dealing with the issues related to the knowledge of geosynthetics at a very basic level for those attendees who wish to enter the field. Finally, between the 17th and 19th of September, 2012, and in parallel with the scientific lectures, the educational lectures will also be held and shall be given by internationally acclaimed industry experts like Jorge Zornberg, Jean Pierre Giroud, Nathalie Touze-Foltz, Ángel Leiro y Manuel Blanco.

2011 GEOSYNTHETICS Middle East Conference

Abu Dhabi, October- Under the Patronage of the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City, the “2011 GEOSYNTHETICS Middle East Conference” will be launched with more commitment to a sustainable and environment friendly infrastructure in line with the Abu Dhabi 2030 vision. Organized by SKZ the German Plastics Centre in cooperation with its local partner BMC Gulf LLC, the conference is taking place on 25th and 26th October – Park Rotana Hotel with the collaboration of AHK the German Chamber of Commerce.
The Patronage of ADM for this prime event, which is considered the largest in the field of Geosynthetics across the Middle East, reflects the Municipality’s attention to promoting the strategic partnerships in support of the comprehensive development projects and sustainability.
Attracting over 300 delegates from 25 countries in 2010, the conference has turned out to be the leading event on geosynthetics throughout the Middle East and marked Abu Dhabi on the world map as an excellent meeting place for geotechnical and environment specialists to exchange knowledge, conduct business and build strategic partnerships.
With a focus on the regions infrastructure projects and environmental applications, the Geosynthetics Middle East 2011 will once again contribute to the quality of the construction projects throughout the region, increasing their value and considerably extending their service life.
One of the major topics which ADM is concentrating in this conference is the ability to develop more sustainably which will determine the speed and degree of climate change experienced. While some climate change is inevitable due to past greenhouse gas emissions, the need to reduce future GHG emissions is increasing to better manage the future impacts of climate change on the environment, economy, and society.
Eng. Abdulla Al Shamsi, Executive Director of Infrastructure and Municipal Assets at the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City said: “Such Conferences will be a venue for the recent developments and future opportunities for geosynthetics in infrastructure will primarily focus on environmentally friendly materials that can be used in the construction industry”.
Al Shamsi added that ADM is pursuing a leading role in adopting sustainable development policies, and drawing up strategic plans based on a methodology closely integrated between projects undertaken and services delivered
Key industry experts will present applications & case studies on geosynthetics used in: Railways, Roads, Airports, Seaports, Bridges, Tunnels, Landfills, Environmental Protection, and other related topics.
