Abstract deadline: 15 April 2011

The Canadian Geotechnical Society, the Association of Engineering Geologists and the Joint Technical Committee on Landslides (JTC-1) announce the 11th International Symposium on Landslides (ISL) and the 2nd North American Symposium on Landslides.

The theme of the symposium will be Landslides and Engineered Slopes: Protecting Society through Improved Understanding. The ISL/NASL 2012 symposium is designed to provide a stimulating forum for geoscientists, engineers, planners, economists, program managers, and other decision makers concerned with landslide hazards and their impact on society.

The local technical committee, in partnership with the international advisory panel, have developed a program of sessions and plenary lectures to highlight the advancements and state-of-the-art in landslide research and practice from around the globe. In addition there will be field trips, workshops, social events and the partner program.

There will be four days of technical sessions (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday) and one day (Wednesday) of technical excursions, included in the registration fee.

The conference will address the entire range of technical and social-economic policy issues surrounding assessment and management of all types of slope instability – conference papers will be published in a proceedings volume.
