AFTES, the French Tunnelling and Underground Space Association, is organising its 15th International Congress, to be held from 13 to 16 November 2017.

The congress with the general theme of «The value is underground », will highlight the latent value of underground space as a means of developing our living spaces, especially if urban planning harnesses it to establish a symbiosis between ground-level and underground. It will also focus on the abundance of, and the necessity of interweaving know-how and disciplines that are crucial to providing those spaces with a sustainable life. http://www.aftes2017.com/en/.
