Every four years a chapter of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) hosts the society’s biggest event: the International Conference on Geosynthetics. An exceptional milestone will be reached when the 10th International Conference on Geosynthetics (10 ICG) takes place 21-25 September 2014 in Berlin. Hosted by the German Chapter of IGS, 10 ICG will bring together practitioners from around the world. With these attendees representing all sectors of the larger engineering community, the event will underscore just how diverse the discipline of geosynthetics is globally and technically.
Not only is the event significant for the decades of developments it is built upon but it is being co-located with a major geotechnical conference: the biennial German Geotechnical Society (DGGT) conference and exhibition.
It is an extraordinary opportunity for visitors, presenters and exhibitors to network and learn from one another.
For those who would like to present, please keep in mind that abstracts are due 31 July 2013.
For those who would like to exhibit and who are IGS Corporate Members, please be aware that IGS Corporate Members have exclusive access to exhibit and sponsorship opportunities through 21 July 2013.
The deadline for abstract submission is 31 July 2013
Abstracts may be submitted through the event website (www.10icg-berlin.com). Please share this opportunity with your professional colleagues!
Key themes that the organizers are interested in include:
- Benefits of utilizing geosynthetics (e.g., project economics)

Please note that there will be no separate paper submission by the IGS Chapters.
