Aim

The 5th International seminar on Earthworks in Europe that will take place in Prague, Czech Republic in 2022 has for aim to promote good practice of earthworks in all kinds of civil engineering construction as well as to exchange information between professionals regarding planning, designing and constructing earth structures. New approaches and materials, construction risks, environmental aspects as well as great achievements in the field of earthworks will be discussed. This seminar follows up four previous similar events that were organised in Paris (2005), London (2009), Berlin (2012) and Madrid (2018). The seminar was originally planned for April 2021 but due to coronavirus restrictions was postponed to April 2022.

The seminar will be organised under the auspices of the Czech Road Society and Czech Chamber of Engineers.

The main discussed topics proposed:

  • Earthworks standards
  • Soil treatment
  • Alternative and special materials in earthworks
  • Soil reinforcement
  • Hydraulic fills
  • Earthwork failures

Invitation

We invite everyone interested in earthworks not only from Europe but also from other corners of the world to come to Prague and share their experience with others. Earthworks represent major share in time and costs in civil engineering constructions. Billions of cubic meters of soil and rock as well as secondary and artificial materials are moved and placed in earth structures every year. Our goal is earthworks conducted in high quality, quickly and environmentally friendly.

Prague is located in the very heart of Europe. It is the beautiful capital of the Czech Republic and has always been a landmark of European science and academic life. We believe that hosting this important event in Prague will inspire and boost the interest on earthworks in many parts of Europe and worldwide. It will strengthen and reinforce research and collaboration between the Western and the Central-Eastern European countries.

Prague is a city of stunning beauty and magnificent architecture, best of all the famous Charles Bridge which crosses the Vltava river (“Moldau”). Prague can be called one of the most captivating cultural heritages in the World.

Seminar will be held in the Prague Congress Palace with perfect and quick access by underground (metro) and with superb view of Prague panorama from the congress place.

We look forward to welcoming you in Prague!
