Located in Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the conference is set in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and provides a stunning venue for the international landslide community to convene and share. This location is ideally situated to stage a series of pre-, post- and mid-conference field trips will provide delegates with a taste of the culture, geology and landslides issues of Western Canada and the Rocky Mountains.
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 field trips, workshops, social events and the partner program will make this meeting an unforgettable event.
