The Geosynthetic Institute (GSI) international affiliate GSI Korea will host the GSI Asia 2015 Conference 24 – 26 June 2015 at the Textile Center in Seoul, Korea. This marks the 2nd GSI-Asia International Geosynthetics Conference. The event has launched a website and abstracts are invited for consideration through January 25.
Key session topics:
- Stabilized and Reinforced Soil Structures
- Hydraulic Engineering
- Geo-Environmental and Green Structure Applications
- Testing, Regulation, and Reliability; MQC/MCA and CQC/CQA
Abstracts of less than 300 words should be submitted on A4 paper via email to the conference chair, Prof. Han-Yong Jeon , email@example.com. Notification of accepted abstracts is expected around February 15.
The event, like GSI, is truly international. The region is enjoying exceptional infrastructure investment and growth with water resources, waste management, remediation, and transportation. Practitioners in Asia are contributing many of the most highly published geotechnical research today. (See the authors lists and affiliations in IGS Journals such as Geosynthetics International and Geotextiles & Geomembranes, for example.) And GSI now has three affiliates in Asia (Taiwan, Korea, India).
Further, the GSI Asia 2015 Scientific Committee includes support from around the world (13 countries, including the USA, Canada, France, Italy, and Germany).
In his letter of invitation on the conference’s website, Dr. Jeon highlights the geo-environmental and geotechnical interaction that GSI Asia 2015 will provide, as well as a global view of R&D and the future of geosynthetics in infrastructure.
