Discussion Topic : First International Conference on Embankment Dams (ICED’2020): Dam Breach Modelling and Risk Disposal

The ISSMGE Technical Committee 210 on Embankment Dams is pleased to announce the launch of an ISSMGE TC210 conference series: International Conference on Embankment Dams. We would like to invite you to join us at the inaugural event of the conference series, the First International Conference on Embankment Dams (ICED’2020): Dam Breach Modelling and Risk Disposal, to be held in June 2020 in Beijing, China.

In light of the occurrence of many major embankment dam failure events in the past few years, the symposium will address the most recent research and practice developments in embankment dam safety and risk management, stimulating fruitful scientific and technical interactions among the fields of soil mechanics, engineering geology, hydrology, fluid mechanics, structural and infrastructural engineering, and social sciences. The conference themes will include, but not limited to, the following topics:

Case histories of failure of embankment dams and landslide dams

Dam failure process modelling

Soil mechanics for embankment dams

Risk assessment & management

Detection, diagnosis and mitigation of dam distresses

Early warning and emergency response

Intelligent monitoring and management of embankment dams

Regulations and technical standards for embankment dam safety management
