The 2016 edition, again under the direction of John Dunnicliff and organized by Paolo Mazzanti, will follow the same general format of the 2015 course.

Leading experts from all over the world will contribute with their lectures to one of the most advanced and high professional course ever organized about Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring.

In the next edition three special sessions will be dedicated to the presentation of the new trends on geotechnical and structural monitoring, by course Partners and in particular:

  • New Trends in Contact Monitoring
  • New Trends in Remote Monitoring
  • New Trends in Offshore Monitoring and Data Transmission and Management

More details about this sessions are available here…

Furthermore, 10 challenging Case Histories were selected by a call for presentation dadicated to the course participant.
