First JTC1 Workshop on Advances in Landslide Understanding to be held in Barcelona, Spain, 24-26 May 2017
2016-12-01


The Joint Technical Committee on Natural Slopes and Landslides (JTC1) of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, the International Society for Rock Mechanics and the International Association for Engineering Geology is organizing the First JTC1 Workshop on Advances in Landslide Understanding to be held in Barcelona, Spain in May 24th-26th, 2017.

The aim of the Workshop is to promote discussion between scientists and engineers on topics which require attention because of difficulties in identification, triggering causes, mechanisms, modelling and prevention, such as:
- Brittle failures / First time failures
- Transition slow‐fast motion
- Stability of weathered profiles
- Compound landslides
- Landslides in reservoirs
- Landslides in mines and tailings deposits
- Soil-atmosphere interaction

Extended abstracts will be published in an electronic format book (Including ISBN). Selected papers will be collected in a Special Issue of an International Journal

The deadline for extended abstract submission is January 31st, 2017.
