The main objective of the symposium is 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. Papers related to investigation, classification, monitoring, analysis and mitigation of landslides, as well as case studies on innovative analysis techniques and solutions will be presented.
The symposium hotel is in central Roanoke, the largest city, shopping, and dining destination in the "Virginia Mountains Region." Roanoke is an entry point for the Blue Ridge Parkway - "America's Most Scenic Drive." Local points of interest include several museums, the Historic Roanoke City Market, various craft breweries, and one of Virginia's favorite hikes, McAfee Knob.
Nearby areas are a playground for outdoor enthusiasts with lakes to boat, rivers to fish, and peaks to conquer. But that's not all, there are many historical and cultural attractions. So consider a family vacation before or after the symposium!
