The Symposium is organized under the auspices of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Materials Engineering (DICAM), University of Bologna, Italian Geotechnical Association, ASCE Geo-Institute, International Geosynthetics Society, Technical Committees TC 101 (Laboratory Stress Strength Testing of Geomaterials) & TC 305 (Geotechnical Infrastructure for Megacities and New Capitals) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, and three Japanese research institutes (Public Works Research Institute, Railway Technical Research Institute and National Institute for Rural Engineering).

The Symposium shall cover, but not limited to the following topics:

·        Geosynthetic-reinforced soil retaining walls

·        Geosynthetic-reinforced soil slopes

·        Construction of reinforced embankments over soft soil

·        Geotextile tubes

·        Geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures for railways and highways

·        Properties of backfill soils, geosynthetics, and soil-geosynthetic interaction
