7th Interdisciplinary Workshop on Rockfall Protection
In Japan,as well as in Switzerland and other alpineregions in Europe, many rockfall protection works have been constructed in mountainous areasand along rocky coastlinesto protect human lives and road transportation networks from falling rocks. However, largescale rockfall disasters have still occurredand a large number of lives have been lost.Thus, it is still an urgent matter to precisely forecast and/or predict the magnitude of the falling rocks, to develop rockfall protection works having the highest level of safety performance, and to mitigate rockfall disasters
At the 7th Interdisciplinary Workshop on Rockfall Protection RocExs2020, scholars, researchers, managers and engineers related to geology, rock mechanics, and disaster mitigation engineering will get together to discuss and evaluate new methods, models and approaches for the analysis and management of rockfalls.
Meet us at the RocExs in Sapporo from June 21 to 24, 2021.
