Welcome to JTC1 Workshop
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 delighted to invite you to join us at 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 tailing deposits
- Soil - atmosphere interaction
Extended abstracts (from 3 to 4 pages) are most welcome. They will be published in an electronic format book (Including ISBN).
Every accepted contribution will be orally presented in the workshop and discussion will be highlighted.
Keynote and invited lectures are also programmed.
The Organizing Committee has plans to publish a Special Issue in a relevant journal. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit the full manuscript for consideration of journal publication.
