With sesveral landslide sessions at the AGU Fall meeting in Decembermultiple landslide sessions at the EGU General Assembly in April, Geohazarads 5 in May, and Slope Stability 2011 in September the next 12 months look excellent for landslide meetings.  Further out, we have the 11th International Symposium on Landslides in May 2012
