Call for Proposals

The 12th International Conference on Geosynthetics (12 ICG), will provide all participants a dynamic platform for a meaningful academic, professional, social and cultural experience. Under the theme “Geosynthetics: leading the way to a resilient planet” the 12 ICG will cover diverse disciplines of geosynthetics from fundamentals to applications. Considering the diverse range of interests and applications, the organizers have chosen not to limit the scope of the conference to just the theme; rather, the event will facilitate learning and dialogue on the key issues faced by geosynthetics communities throughout the world. Therefore, we welcome your participation and invite your proposals for technical sessions, short courses & training lectures.
