“The International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring is growing year by year since its first edition in 2014 and, up to now, more than 450 attendees improved their technical knowledge with us!
40 international leaders have joined the courses as invited speakers and have presented their interesting projects from all around the world. In addition, the courses have become a great platform for other speakers to present new trends and case histories.
In 2017 we moved from Tuscany to Rome, allowing easier access and an increase in the available seating space for registrants. The attractiveness of the “Eternal City” was also a plus! We organized a field trip to the historical center of Rome, allowing participants to see a challenging geotechnical and structural monitoring program during construction of a new Metro Line that requires preservation of one of the most famous archeological sites in the world.
2017 was also the first year for the Master Classes (2h 30min. each) about various monitoring methods. Each class covered the following main topics: installation, data acquisition, data processing, tricks and tips from everyday experience, with opportunity for discussion.
In 2018 we are planning to organize even more Master Classes!
Please keep your agenda free for the 5th International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring… and find out the news that will come soon!”
