People who live on the Adriatic-Balkan region shared a common history, development of culture, science and arts, thus by an incessant growth of common or similar ideas, goals and destiny.
Quite recently, the extreme weather conditions has paid attention to the landslides and related phenomenon, that were widespread in this area. Landslides represent a relevant problem for most of the countries located on the Adriatic-Balkan region and requires huge human and technological resources and closer relationships between neighboring countries and a continuous, well-aware exchange of ideas. This simple idea was reason to establish Adria-Balkan Network on Landslides.
The general objective of the International Consortium on Landslides – Adriatic-Balkan Network (ICL ABN) is advancing landslide science and its practical application in the region for the benefit of society and the environment.
1st Regional Symposium on Landslides in the Adriatic-Balkan Region was co-organized by ICL ABN (1st ReSyLAB) in Zagreb (Croatia) in March 2013. The main topic of the round table discussion was how to plan and deliver activities of the ICL ABN successfully, which is one of the greatest challenges of the regional network. One of the main conclusions of this round table was organization of regional symposia every two years. 2nd ReSyLAB will be held in Belgrade in 2015.
We would like to invite you to the upcoming 2nd Regional Symposium on Landslides in the Adriatic-Balkan Region (ReSyLAB) hosting in the City of Belgrade, Serbia.
This symposium will be held on 14-15th May 2015 and is aimed for ICL ABN members, as well as for scientist, experts and professionals from Serbia, countries in the Adriatic-Balkan Region and world-wide countries who are involved in research of landslides phenomena, particularly in mitigation of related hazard and risk. Symposium participants will have opportunity to present their experience as oral or poster presentations. All participants are invited to submit full paper to be published in Symposium proceedings. Official language for papers and presentations is English.
Organizations and individuals, scientists, experts and professionals are also welcomed to share photographs and short stories about landslides events during photo exhibition ‘Living with landslides’ in the Symposium Gallery.
The total number of expected Symposium participants is around 100. You will have the opportunity to visit Umka landslide near Belgrade equipped by automated real-time monitoring system from 2010, as part of TR 36009 and IPL 181 Project activities.
