Landslide sessions at EGU 2013

Posted by Dave Petley

The EGU General Assembly, held each year in Vienna, is the greatest annual meeting of landslide scientists and practitioners.  The 2013 meeting will be held from 7th to 12th April and promises to be an amazing event as usual.  Having given the meeting a miss last year (I had attended the previous six years) I am raring to go in 2013, especially as I will miss the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco in a fortnight.  There is a wide variety of sessions to which abstracts can be submitted – it is likely that some of these will be merged in due course, making the event a little easier to navigate.  This is the full session list:

NH3.1: Mechanisms and processes of landslides induced by water
Convener: Hiroshi Fukuoka  | Co-Conveners: Thom Bogaard , Roberto Greco , Giovanni Crosta , Paolo Frattini , Jean-Philippe Malet

NH3.2 Landslide mechanisms and processes in seismically or volcanically active environments
Convener: Randall W. Jibson  | Co-Conveners: Janusz Wasowski , Hiroshi Fukuoka , Chyi-Tyi Lee , Vincenzo Del Gaudio

NH3.3 Rockfalls, rockslides and rock avalanches
Conveners: Michael Krautblatter , Jeffrey Moore  | Co-Conveners: Federico Agliardi , Giovanni Crosta , Axel Volkwein , Luuk Dorren

NH3.5 Advanced methods in landslides research I: Characterizing and monitoring landslide processes using remote sensing and geophysics
Convener: Michel Jaboyedoff  | Co-Conveners: Vincenzo Del Gaudio , Janusz Wasowski , Gilles Grandjean

NH3.6 Advanced methods in landslides research II: modelling
Convener: Giulio G.R. Iovine  | Co-Convener: Denis Cohen

NH3.7 Large slope instabilities: characterisation, dating, triggering, monitoring and modelling

NH3.13 Numerical modeling for the analysis of failure processes in geomaterials and geostructures
Convener: Riccardo Castellanza  | Co-Conveners: Jose Antonio Fernandez Merodo , Piernicola Lollino , S. Utili

GM6.1/NH3.14 Rockfalls, rockslides and rock avalanches (co-organized)
Convener: Michael Krautblatter

GM9.2/HS9.8/NH3.15 Geomorphic and hydrological processes in proglacial areas under conditions of (rapid) deglaciation (co-organized)
Convener: Tobias Heckmann  | Co-Conveners: Andrew Kos , Christian Briese , Reynald Delaloye , Volkmar Mair , Samuel McColl , David Morche , Philip Owens , Tim Stott

Full details are available here; abstracts (there is no need to write a full paper for this meeting) are due on 9th January 2013.  There is usually no possibility of an extension to this deadline.
