Call for Practical Learning Workshop Proposals

One of the goals of Geosynthetics 2015 is to reach out to industry landscape architects, engineers, installers, specifiers and others that are not familiar with the use of Geosynthetics. To that end we will be offering special sessions focusing on the “basics” of geosynthetics and practical “how -to” techniques that include planning, design, and /or construction. These sessions will be held during the conference and should be 2 – 4 hours in length. Where appropriate these workshops may be repeated during the program.

Proposals should include the workshop title, a description of the course with a summary of its learning objectives and a list of instructors.

Submit Practical Learning Workshop Proposals online by Feb. 28, 2014.
