Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 11th International Conference on Geosynthetics (11ICG), which will be held in Seoul, Korea from September 16 to 21, 2018.

The Korean Geosynthetics Society (KGSS) will have the privilege of hosting 11ICG in Korea, and plans to go to great lengths to ensure the conference surpasses all expectations. The 11ICG will provide all participants a firm platform for a meaningful academic, professional, social and cultural experience. The theme of the 11ICG is “Geosynthetics: Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Development,” and will cover diverse disciplines of geosynthetics from fundamentals to applications.

With the vision of making a multidisciplinary conference for the geosynthetics industry and engineers, we plan to offer special events as well as a very dynamic and stimulating array of scientific and practical engineering programs. At 11ICG, academia and industry will gather in force to not only show their best, but to share valuable ideas and develop new friendships.

11ICG will provide a comprehensive overview of the most recent developments in the field of geosynthetics, the latest technologies and applications, and a unique and extensive technical exhibition. With fascinating ancient traditions and ultramodern lifestyle, the city of Seoul will surely be the center of many unforgettable moments.

We look forward to welcoming you in Seoul, Korea!

Sincerely yours,
