As an update to last week’s post, the GeoAmericas 2016 abstract deadline has been extended to April 10.
GeoAmericas 2016, the third Pan-American conference on geosynthetics, is a gathering of engineers, academic-related professionals, facility owners, regulators and installers, such as International Lining Technology. It will be held April 10-13 in Miami Beach, Florida. This is a perfect opportunity to interact with industry professionals and show your expertise in use of geosynthetics.
The conference is looking for 400 words abstracts in topics related to mining, waste and waste water, transportation, slope stability and reinforced structures, sustainability, tunnels, durability of products, waste management, testing, and construction and manufacturing.
Special session topics include installation aspects of soil reinforcement applications, stabilization of projects and mining applications.
Authors will be notified on April 15 if their proposal was accepted. We look forward to learning the latest advances and best practices in our industry.
