The 4th International Symposium on Risk Assessment and Sustainable Stability Design of Slopes (Toronto, Canada; September 29–October 4, 2024)
Last Updated:2023/11/11 15:26:36


Rapid climate change and increasingly extreme weather events, have caused a surge in catastrophic geological disasters worldwide in both subaerial and submarine environments, which result in undesirable economic and social consequences. It is thus crucial for engineering geology communities to  enhance risk assessment and sustainability through fully exchanging expertise.

This international biennial conference aims to bring together academic scientists, leading engineers, and students to exchange and share their experiences and latest research findings. It began in 2018 at Shanghai, China. Since then, the conference has evolved into a series of global activities conducted at Edinburgh, UK (2020) and Sendai, Japan (2022).
