New Trends in geotechnical and structural monitoring with presentations by Course Partners

“During each of the fist two courses in 2014 and 2015 we invited about twelve colleagues to make presentations.

For the third course we’ve looked for ways to increase interactions among course participants and to give some of our course partners the opportunity to share their experiences with us. We’ve therefore invited additional colleagues to make brief presentations about new trends in geotechnical and structural monitoring. We’re excited that eleven of them have accepted our invitation, and believe that this will very much increase the value of the 2016 course.

Three sessions will be devoted to these presentation – an outline is showed below.

We are really looking forward to meeting you in Poppi!”
