International Transportation and Infrastructure Conference (ITIC)


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to attend the fourth GeoMEast 2020 International Congress & Exhibition to be held in Cairo, Egypt from November 08 to 12, 2020. The GeoMEast SERIES is managed by SSIGE and supported by a number of leading international professional organizations.
For the first time in Africa and Middle East, the next 4th GeoMEast2020 International Congress and Exhibition includes three parallel international conferences in one congress. The Sustainable Structures, Underground Structures and Transportation & Infrastructure Conferences will shape the future of the "Sustainable Construction in Africa and Middle East", which is chosen as the theme of the GeoMEast2020 congress. The three conferences will be held in parallel at the Sheraton Cairo Hotel and Resort during the period of November 08-12, 2020.
Recent rapid construction in Africa and Middle East have provided great opportunities for structure, bridge, material, transportation, pavement, geotechnical, geological, tunnel, geosynthetics, infrastructure and all engineers to use their knowledge and talents to solve many challenging problems and cutting-edge technologies.

GeoMEast 2020 will provide a showcase for recent developments and advancements in design, construction, and safety inspections of sustainable structures, underground structures and transportation infrastructures, and offer a forum to discuss and debate future directions for the 21st century. You will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world for technical, scientific, and commercial discussions.
ITIC 2020 will have keynote speakers, technical sessions, workshops, courses and publications. There will be a general steering committee for the GeoMEast2020 congress that controls the three conferences and their developments.
Proceedings of the ITIC 2020 conference will be published in some Edited Books by Springer-DE, which will be submitted for inclusion in EI, Scopus and ISI "Thomson Reuters". In addition, some journal special issues will be published in some prestigious journals from selected best papers of the conference, however, authors need to expand and include materials that are at least 75% different than the accepted papers in the proceedings.

ITIC 2020 will provide some awards; such as: best paper awards, best presenter awards, best student presenter awards, industrial project, and others.

Egypt has one of the longest histories of any modern country, arising in the tenth millennium BC as one of the world's first nation states. Considered a cradle of civilization, Ancient Egypt experienced some of the earliest developments of design and construction, writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion and central government in history. Iconic monuments such as the Giza Necropolis and its Great Sphinx, as well the ruins of Memphis, Thebes, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings, reflect this legacy and remain a significant focus of archaeological study and popular interest worldwide.

We are eagerly looking forward to meet with you in Cairo next November!
