Covid19 outbreak is a global threat and, first of all, we hope that you and your families are fine. The LARAM team is fine and we hope to meet students and lecturers again in person as soon as possible.
Also this year the LARAM School (www.laram.unisa.it) will take the occasion to teach and be together with the students. We will simply do in a different way.
We reshaped the traditional schedule of the School, with the lectures and the other activities comprised in the time window from 13:00 to 19:30 in Italian Summer time (=UTC+2).

· the selection among applicants
· final certificate of attendance to the students
· mandatory, interactive participation of the students (to receive the end of the School certificate)
· 40 selected PhD students
· 10 registered Young Doctors (PhD defended not before 2015)
The programme of the School will consist of 5-hour daily lectures and end-of-day test. The programme is structured in the following sessions:
· S1, Introduction to landslides
· S2, Landslide risk theory
· S3, Landslide modelling
· S4, International experiences

we are pleased to announce that the next edition of LARAM School will be hosted by Prof. Michel Jaboyedoff at University of Lausanne (Switzerland). For logistic constraints, the 2 weeks lessons will be scheduled on 2nd – 13th September 2019.
We are aware that in the period 1st – 6th of September 2019 the ECSMGE 2019 (XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering) will be held in Reykjavik (Iceland), organized by the ISSMGE. We are sorry for this inconvenience that we couldn’t manage in a different way.
We hope that the PhD students potentially interested to apply for participating to the School will be able to arrange properly their schedule.
We send our best regards, and we look forward to meeting you soon.
