After extensive evaluation and broad debate with IGS and representatives of the main supporters of the event, the GeoAmericas 2020 Organizing Committee decided to change the date of the conference to Oct. 26–29, 2020. The conference will still be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In this unique moment of alertness and consternation and which has required extraordinary care from everyone, the GeoAmericas 2020 Organizing Committee is concerned with establishing a procedure that would guarantee the safety of the participants and the realization of an event that can bring together the community of geosynthetics in an environment of confidence and enthusiasm.

The committee is convinced that this is the best option to preserve the well-being of all the participants and to ensure that the great objective of the event is achieved: a wide meeting in the Americas with the entire technical community and the geosynthetics industry.

The October event will use the same venue, same structure, same schedule (with some additions to be announced in the future). With the postponement, some important deadlines will be extended and the new calendar will be published soon.
