Among key topics of the conference:

  • Development of technical regulations designed for geosynthetics production and use in road construction
  • Relevant test methods and harmonized approach to facilitate the use of European and International standards of geosynthetics
  • Use of geosynthetics for improvement of ground reinforced embankments on road junction near the entry point to Maykop Republic of Adygeya
  • Major engineering solution using geosynthetics for construction of Odintsovo north bypass toll road
  • Application of geosynthetic materials for road ways with weak soil and asphalt pavement
  • Analysis of application of geosynthetics for reinforcing embankments of roads
  • Experience in the use of geosynthetic materials in Novosibirsk oblast. Drainage geocomposites for road drainage design.
  • Use of stressed geogrid in road construction
  • Volgo-Vyatskupravtodor design solutions for road construction in Volga-Vyatka region with the use of geosynthetic materials

A lot of attention will be given to development of quality management and testing of geosynthetic materials. Participants and experts will discuss following questions in the framework of special sessions:

  • Geosynthetics: construction compliance monitoring
  • Interaction between customers and contractors in estimation of geosynthetic materials test results
  • Differences in systems for quality control of geosynthetics utilized by Russian foreign producers depending on equipment and production technologies
  • Modern equipment for geosynthetic material testing
  • Cost value of geosynthetic material testing
  • Prospects of independent geosynthetic research and testing centers

A room block with special pricing has been arranged for event attendees at the Hilton Leningradskaya Hotel.  For registration and more information, contact Irina Zabalueva, +7(495) 775-07-40 or e-mail
