IGS hosting June workshops in Munich on georeinforcement and geobarriers
April 13, 2018
The International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) will host two high-level, two-day geotechnical engineering workshops on georeinforcement and geobarriers June 4–7, 2018, in Munich, Germany. These events, with their international speakers, attendees and engineering issues will provide the most advanced IGS Technical Committee–led workshops to date.
The IGS welcomes the world’s civil and geotechnical engineers to this unique gathering. Share your project experience, learn from renowned researchers and engineers in the global geosynthetics field, and network with colleagues who influence diverse sectors such as mining, coal ash, transportation engineering, MSE design, waste management and more.
Interactive format: Audience presentation/discussion
Each workshop will be divided into major topics and will focus on very recent technical developments and emerging technical issues. This format means that presenters will not prepare written contributions to be compiled in proceedings; instead they will share presentation slides with attendees. Time may be allocated in each section for attendees to share short statements (single-slide presentations) from the floor. An emphasis is placed on discussion. This interactivity will help propel conversation among colleagues, enhance the topical depth of the gathering and ensure that region-specific concerns can be addressed. The format will make the overall workshops’ information more ready to implement and foster stronger professional connections between attendees.
Attendees interested in contributing to the open forum portion should consult the workshop details for applicable deadlines for supplying a slide (optional) and informing a session’s moderator or a workshop organizer of your interest in contributing.
Workshop Location: Munich Workstyle
Landwehrstraße 61, 80336 München, Germany
(400 m from Munich’s central train station)
