Hanoi geoengineering 2010

The International Symposium on 
    Urban Geoengineering, Earth Resources and Sustainability
                                                              in the context of climate change. 

Revenue:  Le Van Thiem Conference Hall, Vietnam National University, Hanoi
                22-23 November 2010.

Hanoi Geoengineering 2010 continues on the basis of the 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2007 Hanoi GeoEngineering, which has become a traditional and familiar international symposium, jointly organized by Vietnam national University,  Hanoi (VNU) and Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in close collaboration with other overseas and national partners. The symposium is aimed at developing the better collaboration between overseas and Vietnamese engineers and scholars.

Theme of the Hanoi GeoEngineering 2010 Symposium is “Urban Geoengineering and Sustainability in the Context of Climate Change”. With an unprecedented booming and expansion of urban areas in Vietnam in the early 21st century the activities related to education, and research in geological, geotechnical, geoenvironmental and geophysical engineering have to be more promoted and active to meet the needs of the country of today and in future.
