Connecting State of the Art to State of Practice

Connecting State of the Art to State of Practice

The quadrennial GeoAmericas engineering conference explores the appropriate use and beneficial impact of geosynthetics on civil infrastructure and sustainability throughout the Americas. The 2024 conference, which is a major regional technical conference and trade show of the International Geosynthetics Society (IGS)*, is organized by IGS North America.

Registration Opens October 25, 2023!

GeoAmericas has previously been held in Cancún (2008), Lima (2012), Miami (2016), and Rio de Janeiro (2020 – Virtual). Toronto marks the first time a major IGS regional conference will be held in Canada. Attendees to Toronto will have a unique opportunity to build significant connections with engineering, sustainability, and infrastructure partners who will gather again in Canada just two years later for the 13th International Conference on Geosynthetics (13 ICG), which will be held in Montreal in September 2026.

Also of note, GeoAmericas 2024 will celebrate the 40th anniversary of ASTM International Committee D35 on Geosynthetics. The impact of standardization on engineering practice in the Americas will be explored throughout the conference and help tie together the event’s theme: Connecting State of the Art to State of Practice.

The Organizing Committee of GeoAmericas 2024 welcomes your questions, your ideas, and your expertise. Geosynthetics are used throughout all major sectors of civil engineering. A robust exchange of information from all sectors and participants is how the practice evolves.
