Miami to Host 3rd Pan-American Conference on Geosynthetics

The 3rd Pan-American Conference on Geosynthetics (GeoAmericas 2016) will be held 10 – 13 April 2016 in Miami.

This quadrennial regional conference from the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) features 3.5 days of high-quality geotechnical and civil engineering short courses, technical sessions, panel discussions, training lectures, keynote addresses, and networking in a sold out international exhibit hall.

GeoAmericas 2016, representing multiple opportunities for coastal protection professionals, will take place at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.

Since they emerged in the 1950s, Geosynthetics have been used for dewatering and solids separation for large-scale dredging operations and the construction of artificial islands.

They build up dune systems for hurricane defense and create artificial reefs. Geotextiles and affiliated gabion systems provide shoreline stabilization and erosion control.

Geosynthetic bags provide scour protection for shorelines, infrastructure (e.g., ports), and even off-shore wind turbines. Geosynthetics reinforce levees, enhance the sustainability of waterfront construction, and provide highly effective, economical solutions to long-term coastal engineering goals.
