GeoAmericas 2016

Loews Miami Beach - GeoAmericas 2016GeoAmericas 2016 will be held 10 – 13 April 2016 in Miami, Florida, USA. The event brings together experts in geosynthetics and geotechnical engineering from throughout the Americas. Hosted by the North American Geosynthetics Society, and serving as the 3rd Pan-American Conference on Geosynthetics, GeoAmericas offers a strong opportunity to exchange knowledge, develop new business, and continue to improve the field of geosynthetics.
The conference Call for Abstracts is open through 10 April and welcomes a diverse range of topics: sustainability, highway development, port construction, tunnels, and so forth.
In addition, GeoAmericas 2016 offers multiple special sessions, which have been requested by prospective participants. These sessions are currently being developed and their organizers welcome your abstracts.
