The 15th PanAmerican Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (XV PCSMGE) will take place 15 – 18 November 2015 in Buenos Aires. Following the trend of other major geotechnical events in Latin America, the conference will co-locate with three major events to optimize participant networking and educational benefits.
Also being held in conjunction with the XV PCSMGE will be:

  • 8th South American Conference on Rock Mechanics (CSMR)
  • 6th International Symposium of Deformation Characteristics of Soils (IC- BA2015 )
  • XXII Argentinian Congress of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (CAMSIG XXII)

For companies involved in the geosynthetics field, the gathering presents an exceptional opportunity to engage the larger geotechnical, geohazards, and civil engineering communities. It will be especially informative for interaction in mining, environmental engineering, and infrastructure development in the Americas.
Early bird registration rates are available through 30 June 2015.
Geosynthetics and Geotechs
Companies that geosynthetics industry participants will recognize among the XV PCSMGE sponsors include Huesker, Maccaferri, Coripa SA, and Geo-Slope International.  The wider geohazards and geotechnical related list includes DYWIDAG, Bauer, Geobrugg, Itasca, Keller, Durham Geo Slope Indicator, etc.
Institutional support includes the Transportation Research Board (TRB), the Argentine Committee on Dams (CADP), Argentina Road Association, and numerous technical universities.
More broadly, the event is supported by the International Society of Rock Mechanics (ISRM), the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), and the Argentina Society of Geotechnical Engineers (SAIG).
