DEADLINE EXTENSION! The 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics, organized by the International Geosynthetics Society’s Korean Chapter, will be held in Seoul, South Korea 16 – 21 September 2018. The Young IGS Members will host a special session during 11 ICG as part of the technical program. The Call for Papers for that special session has been extended to 31 October 2017.
Abstracts should be no more than 300 words.

Young IGS Members Special Session at 11 ICG
Tara van der Peet’s “3D numerical analysis of basal reinforced piled embankments” was named the winner of the Young IGS Members paper competition at the 10th International Conference on Geosynthetics (Berlin, 2014).

Young IGS Members who have already submitted an abstract for the main 11 ICG program are invited to inform the Conference Secretariat of the corresponding abstract number (secretariat@11icg-seoul.org). This will enable a selected finalist for the young members session to be included in the program and to have special consideration time given to when the presentation is scheduled.


Nominees should be IGS members and no older than 35 years old at the time of the event. Corresponding proof of membership and date of birth are required. The candidate should be the first author of the paper and, in the event that the abstract is selected, also the presenter.
Participation in this special session is free for fully-paid registrants of the 11 ICG.
Approximately 10 candidate papers will be selected. These 10 candidates will receive a certificate and be rewarded with a special gift.
The best lecturer will be selected based on the contents of the paper, style of the presentation and delivery. The winner will receive the best paper plaque.
The template to submit your paper to the Young IGS Members Session is the same as one for the main program.
The main topics for 11 ICG are:

  • Sustainability and Green Technology with Geosynthetics
  • Geosynthetic Barriers
  • Geosynthetics in Filtration, Drainage and Erosion Control
  • Reinforced Walls and Slopes
  • Ground Improvement Using Geosynthetics
  • Roads, Railways and Other Transportation Applications
  • Soil-Geosynthetic Interaction
  • Hydraulic Applications
  • Innovative Uses and New Developments
  • Case Histories
  • Durability and Long Term Performance
  • Physical and Numerical Analysis
  • Geosynthetics Properties and Testing
  • Quality Control and Quality Assurance
  • Design Approaches and Other Applications

Submit abstracts and proof of IGS membership and birth date to: secretariat@11icg-seoul.org.
