The 2023 edition of the ICGSM includes 2 days of Master Classes focused on the most common monitoring applications, such as Bridges, Landslides, Tunnels, Cultural Heritage and Monuments, Dams, Deep Excavations, Pipelines, Roads, Railroads, Airstrips, Fluid extraction and Storage.

Classes will be held by leading international experts and will aim at presenting the fundamental topics to be considered in the design, implementation, installation, data processing, data management and data interpretation.

This 9th edition of the Course will be especially focused on monitoring data evaluation and validation, considering the whole monitoring chain and emphasizing the main technical and technological features as well as the context in which data is gathered to deliver reliable information.

Within the various covered topics, attention will be paid to the description of how the available technologies, both traditional and innovative ones, can be used in the best possible way to provide answers for decision makers.

Therefore, alongside traditional instrumentation systems such as inclinometers, piezometers, strain gauges, load and pressure cells, accelerometers and seismometers, total stations, GNSS, the most recent available technologies will be presented and discussed, such as Radar from satellite or terrestrial platforms, Lidar and Laser Scanners, Optical Fibers, Photomonitoring from terrestrial, satellite and UAV platforms. Solutions for systems management, data acquisition, transmission, presentation and analysis, event and risk reporting management will also be discussed.

The structure of the Master Classes will be based on a keynote presentation followed by an interactive discussion among Attendees and Class Leaders, who will present the topic and will stimulate the discussion by presenting practical cases and typical problems to deal with.

Attendees and Class Leaders will have the opportunity to share their experiences and learned lessons.

Master Classes will be open to a maximum number of 100 attendees and will be run in sequence starting from 8:45 am to 5:45 pm.
