VOLCANIC ROCKS AND SOILS, 24-25 SEPTEMBER 2015 ISLE OF ISCHIA, ITALY
September 24, 2015 - September 25, 2015
On behalf of the Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI) and of ISRM, ISSMGE, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the international Workshop on Volcanic Rocks & Soils, in the island of Ischia, Italy, on 24-25 September 2015. The event follows three previous Workshops on Volcanic Rocks, the last of which took place five years ago in Tenerife (Spain).
The aim of the Workshop is to bring together international researchers and practitioners dealing with volcanic rocks and soils. These materials exhibit a peculiar mechanical behaviour at both laboratory and in-situ scale, due to their specific structural properties, which makes difficult characterization.
The Workshop occurs in two full days, divided in four sessions devoted to the main Conference topics, and including keynote lectures, selected contributions, and open discussion. The Workshop will be followed by some interesting technical visits which are currently in preparation.
Ischia is famous over the world for its natural beauty and its thermal springs. You will also have the opportunity to visit the coast (Costiera Amalfitana) and the other islands of the Gulf of Naples, including Capri.
