Indian Chapter had the honour of hosting the First Asian Regional Conference on Geosynthetics in November 1997 in Bangalore. On this occasion, Mr. Peter E. Stevenson, the then Secretary of the IGS, in his message had mentioned that “while the organization of this conference is a crowning achievement for the Indian Chapter, I and my fellow officers of the IGS are sure that, ”Geosynthetics Asia’97” will prove to be the launch pad for a very important series of regional conferences in Asia”. After the successful series of Asian Regional Conferences in Kuala Lumpur (2000), Seoul (2004), Shanghai (2008) and Bangkok (2012), it is back to India in 2016, from where the seeds of these regional conferences were planted. I am very pleased to invite you all to attend “Geosynthetics Asia’2016”, which I am sure would be a conference of technical excellence and show case of Indian traditional hospitality.
