Second JTC1 Workshop

The Second Joint Technical Committee on Natural Slopes and Landslides (JTC1) of Federation of International Geo-engineering Societies (FedIGS), which is the alliance of the learned societies the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM), and the International Association for Engineering Geology (IAEG) is delighted to invite you to join us at the Second JTC1 Workshop on Triggering and Propagation of Rapid Flow-like Landslides to be held in Hong Kong on 3 to 5 December 2018.

The aim of the Workshop is to promote discussion on the following topics:

  • Improved understanding in triggering, mechanisms and runout of rapid flow-like landslides, including physical testing and numerical modelling
  • Advances in risk management and mitigation of rapid flow-like landslides
  • Diagnosis of notable case histories of rapid flow-like landslides
  • Potential impact of climate change on initiation and propagation of rapid flow-like landslides

Start Date
03 December 2018

End Date
