This international workshop intends to bring together scientists actively studying bedload and debris-flow monitoring in mountain environments, as well as technicians, professionals and public agencies interested in learning the state-of-the-art on the topic and discussing further developments.
The main objectives of the workshop are:
• Disseminate the state-of-the-art on sediment transport dynamics and its monitoring in mountain basins
• Share research experiences and achievements in bedload and debris-flow monitoring
• Highlight pros and cons of different methods and instruments deployed
• Identify the needs and directions for further technological development
The workshop will consist of two sessions, one for bedload transport and one for debris flows. Each session will include seven invited talks (30 min plus 15 min of discussion), one poster session during the afternoon and a concluding round table. A field trip is offered on the third day visiting a recently completed debris-flow monitoring station near Bolzano. The maximum number of attendees is 130. The cost of registration is 90€ and it includes coffee breaks, buffets and transportation for the field trip.
The final program as well as more information about abstract submission (deadline June 1st 2012), registration (deadline July 15th 2012) and travelling/lodging will be circulated soon
