Geotechnical Frontiers 2017 is a conference and trade show for the geotechnical, civil, and geo-professional communities. This specialty conference held every six years (GeoFrontiers 2005 in Austin, Texas and 2011 in Dallas) is a partnership with IFAI’s biennial Geosynthetics conference and the annual GeoCongress of ASCE’s Geo-Institute.
This event is where the industry unites to share developments in geotechnical engineering and technologies. The four-day event is organized by the Industrial Fabrics Association International’s Geosynthetic Materials Association and the American Society of Civil Engineer’s Geo-Institute. It is supported by the North American Geosynthetics Society under the auspices of the International Geosynthetics Society.
