We are pleased to announce the 8th edition of the International Conference on Debris-Flow hazard Mitigation. The event is jointly organized by Politecnico di Torino and the University of Turin, and will be held on June 26-29, 2023 in the beautiful city of Turin, Italy, on the downtown campus of Politecnico di Torino.
For thousands of years the Alps have held a strategic importance at the heart of Europe, and are nowadays one of the most intensively urbanized and regulated mountain ranges in the world. In this context, the conference will gather international researchers and practitioners in the field of debris-flow, fostering cooperation, communication and exchange of knowledge.
Topics covered by the conference:
Debris-flow entrainment and motion
Debris-flow deposition and fan morphology
Hydrology and debris flows
Laboratory and numerical modeling
Remote sensing and monitoring techniques
Assessment of debris-flow susceptibility, hazard and risk
Application of mitigation technologies
Best practice guidelines
Forensic debris flow studies
Integration of multidisciplinary viewpoints
Risk management by local governments and legislation
