TRANSICOLD 2019 will take place on 20 –23 May 2019, in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The “cold regions” of the world cover large areas in the northern hemisphere, including Canada, Alaska, Finland, Norway, Sweden, vast portion of China and Russia, and all the northern tier of the United States. Cold regions cover 50% of the world’s total land area.
Transportation infrastructure in cold regions faces great technical challenges due to ground freeze-thaw or permafrost degradation. New transportation infrastructure on embankments, such as high-speed railways on slab tracks or highways, requires high geometry standards.
TRANSOILCOLD2019 aims to provide a broader look at the overall problems faced by designers, contractors, and infrastructure owners during planning and building of transport infrastructure in cold regions.
Conference programme includes Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium on 20 May 2019. Specialists under 35 years old are invited. The best presentation author will be awarded the reimbursement of participation cost for XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ECSMGE 2019), Reykjavik, Iceland.

The 40th Anniversary of CCC (Continuous Compaction Control) Symposium will be held in Vienna, Austria, Nov. 29, 2018.
It is coordinated by Dr. Pistrol Johannes, also a Technical Committee member of IICTG. Back to where CCC was started in 1978, 40 years ago (now also known as Intelligent Compaction – IC), the symposium will cover the following topics:
• Historic overview of roller compaction and Continuous Compaction Control (CCC)
• Continuous Compaction Control – CCC applications and interpretation of measurements
• Field testing methods for compaction control (e.g. static and dynamic plate load test)
• Standardization, QA/QC and design aspects
• Recent and future developments (e.g. compaction equipment, electronics, internet)
GeoMEast 2018 will provide a showcase for recent developments and advancements in design, construction, and safety inspections of transportation Infrastructures and offer a forum to discuss and debate future directions for the 21st century.
Recent rapid construction in Egypt and the Middle East has provided great opportunities for bridge, pavement, geotechnical, geological, tunnel and all engineers to use their knowledge and talents to solve many challenging problems involving highways, bridge structures, pavements, materials, ground improvements, slopes, excavations, dams canals and tunnels with innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies.
Conference topics cover a board array of contemporary issues for professionals involved in bridge, pavement, Geomechanics, geo-environmental, geotechnical, geosciences, geophysics, tunnel, water structures, railway and emerging techniques for safety inspections. You will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world for technical, scientific, and commercial discussions.
The GeoMEast 2018 Conference will be held in Cairo, Egypt from November 24 to 28, 2018.

The 2nd International Conference on Technology and Application of Geosynthetics (Geosynthetics 2018) will take place in Santiago, Chile, on 3-5 October 2018.
Geosynthetics 2018 will provide an important international forum to meet and discuss the application areas and most recent and relevant research and innovations regarding geosynthetics. The previous version, in 2017, gathered over 160 professionals from 18 countries.
The Fourth Internacional Conference on Railway Technology: Research, Development and Maintenance, incorporating: The Eighth International Symposium on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH2018), took place on 3-7 September 2018, in Sitges, Barcelona, Spain.
Railways have always played a significant role in the development of the wealth creation capabilities of society. The early roman wagonways, the steam driven railways during the industrial revolution and the electric railways of the late nineteenth and twentieth century are just a few of the railway systems that have played a vital role in past infrastructure development. The search for a fast, reliable and cost effective means of transport that presents better energy efficiency and less impact on the environment has resulted in renewed interest and rapid development in railway technology. Following the success of many special sessions on railways technology, held over the last few years in the Civil-Comp Conference series, a new conference series was created in 2012. The first conference was held in: Las Palmas de Gran Canarian in 2012; the second in Ajaccio, Corsica, in 2014; and the third in Cagliari Sardinia in 2016.
The themes for this conference included (but were not limited to): Rolling Stock; Infrastructure; Energy and Environment; Signalling and Communication; Planning and Operations; Strategies and Economics.
