XIII International Symposium on Landslides – Cartagena (Colombia) – postponed to 2021

Due to the drastic measures imposed at the local and international level to control the Coronavirus, the entry of foreigners to Colombia has been forbidden since the middle of March 2020 and most probably it will be very limited until the month of June 2020 and therefore we were forced to postpone the XIII International Symposium on Landslides to February 22-26, 2021.

More information at the conference website: http://www.scg.org.co/xiii-isl/index.html

E-UNSAT 2020 Lisbon – postponed to 19-21 October 2020

Due to the COV-19 outbreak in all European countries in the last weeks, in agreement with the Chair and the Secretary of the TC-106, E-UNSAT 2020 conference to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, will be postponed. The new dates have been fixed to October 19-21, 2020.
Postponing the conference was necessary to allow for safe travelling and enjoying the event. Hopefully this delay will be enough for the emergency to be over. Further information can be found at https://eunsat2020.tecnico.ulisboa.pt

XIII International Symposium on Landslides – Cartagena (Colombia) – Deadline extension for paper submission

In association with the Joint Technical Committee on Natural Slopes and Landslides (JTC1) and the Federation of International Geo-engineering Societies: ISSMGE, ISRM and IAEG (FedIGS), the Colombian Geotechnical Society (CGS) cordially invites the international geotechnical community to participate in XIII ISL: http://www.scg.org.co/xiii-isl/index.html
call for papers is currently underway. The deadline for submission of papers has been extended to February 17, 2020. Previously, no later than February 14,  full manuscripts  (4 to 8 pages in length, abstract included)  shall be submitted to the conference organizing committee through the ISSMGE’s Conference Review Platform: https://www.issmge.org/publications/review-platform/conferences/isl2020 .

Winter School “From research to practise in geotechnical engineering” – 12–17 January 2020, Ascona (Switzerland)

The Winter School “From research to practise in geotechnical engineering”, coordinated by Prof. I. Anastasopoulos, will take place in Ascona (Switzerland) from 12 to 17 January 2020.

With the ultimate goal of developing innovative mitigation techniques, the international geotechnical engineering community has made substantial efforts to gain deeper insights on geotechnical hazards. For the state of practice to advance, academics need to join forces with practitioners.
The Winter School aims to bring these two groups together, to question the status quo, and to propose out‐of‐the‐box solutions. The program will combine:
a) Keynote lectures by international experts from the academia and the industry;
b) Seminars on state‐of‐the‐art numerical and physical modelling techniques;
c) Presentations by the participants;
d) Panel sessions, where the participants will have a “debate” with industry and academia experts on the applicability of their ideas;
e) Special session on start‐ups, on the process of product development, from initial conception to founding of a new company.

EGU General Assembly 2020 – Session on Seismic Microzonation

Vi segnaliamo, nell’ambito della EGU General Assembly 2020 (Vienna, 3-8 maggio 2020), la sessione NH4.3 sulla Microzonazione Sismica, coordinata da Giovanni Forte con Hans-Balder Havenith e Filippo Santucci de Magistris. È possibile presentare entro il 15 gennaio 2020  un sommario a cui farà seguito una presentazione durante l’Incontro, nelle sessioni orali o tramite poster.

This session is focused on the ‘hazard’ part of seismic microzonation (SM), concerning the classical approaches and the case studies for:
– Subsoil investigation and characterization for SM mapping;
– Multi-level SM mapping;
– Evaluation of seismic site response (1D-2D-3D);
– Assessment of seismic-induced landslides,
– Analyses on Soil liquefaction.
Innovative contributions on soil non-linearity and damping, seismic monitoring and hazard assessment effects are also welcome.
