12th International Conference on Geosynthetics
September 17 – September 21 UTC+0
Latest News – 12 ICG postponed to 17-21 September 2023
last year, 2022 seemed a safe time to schedule a conference such as the 12 ICG.
Unfortunately, after almost one year, the health situation all over the world is still very critical resulting in travel restrictions, cancelled services and important meetings in-person and a near-halt of recreational and entertainment events.
This leads us thinking that next year might not be as safe and travel-free as we hoped.
Moreover, many similar events in the geosynthetics and geotechnical communities have been postponed and will be held in early or mid 2022: GeoAfrica-February 2022 in Cairo, GeoAsia-April 2022 in Taipei, XX ICSMGE-May 2022 in Sydney, resulting in a crowded overlapping year of conferences.
For all these reasons the Organizing Committee of 12 ICG has made the difficult decision to postpone the event to the period 17-21 September 2023, always in Roma.
Of course all deadlines are postponed of one year (details about deadlines will be spread shortly and published on website, social groups and newsletters).
This is not a decision we have taken lightly. It is the one which we hope will ensure the operational integrity of the conference, while protecting everyone’s wellbeing and, ultimately, ensuring the event is a healthy and inclusive one for everyone. We feel that we can be true to the “resiliency” mentioned in the title of the conference.
We are sure all of you will keep your interest in 12 ICG.
We really hope to “leave behind” us all these troubles soon, and meet each other in Roma!
Wishing you good health, we remain
