International conference on landslide risk (ICLR 13)

Type:
Meeting or Conference
Organizer:
National Engineering School of Tunis (ENIT)
Date:
14-16 Mar 2013
Location:
Tunisia (Ain Draham)
Language:
English

The international conference will promote the debate of relevant issues among engineers and researchers in soil and rock mechanics and in environmental fields. An important challenge for scientists is not only to advance in the knowledge on technical matters but also to promote the teaching of these aspects in a wide sense and to increase the awareness of public and local authorities, as well as civil protection institutions, with regards to landslide risks.

Objective
A main objective is to identify emerging developments in the analysis, mitigation and monitoring technologies capable of generating successful methodologies to deal with landslide risk and to contribute to the development of international standards. The conference will hopefully provide engineers and decision-makers with improved procedures for the quantitative assessment of landslide risk.

Special focus is given to:

  • Climatic change effects on slope behavior and the effects on the human activities.
  • Efficient prediction and modeling and related issues.
  • Optimization of tools to monitor and mitigate landslides in different environments, especially in mountainous zones
