EGU24 LandAware get-together in Vienna on Thursday, April 18

As we did in 2022 and 2023, we would like to take advantage of the fact that some LandAware members will be in Vienna at #EGU24 in April… to get together for one evening, to meet and talk in person.

We chose Thursday, April 18, 2024, because that’s the day the session on landslides early warning systems (NH3.7 Towards innovative landslide monitoring, modelling, and early warning systems) is scheduled, thus we are assuming that if you will attend EGU24 , you will most likely be in Vienna on that evening.

The get-together will be an informal dinner with good Austrian beer, self-funded by the participants (unfortunately LandAware doesn’t have any funding to manage), in a restaurant/brewery: Salm Brau. We suggest we meet there at 7:30 PM.

If you are in Vienna on that day, and you like the idea, we ask you to FILL THIS FORM  as we need to know in advance the number of people participating (a reservation is necessary in that place).

Looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!

Session on LEWS at EGU2023

NEWS received from
Stefano Luigi Gariano (CNR IRPI, Italy)

The call-for-abstracts of EGU General Assembly 2023 is open!
#EGU23 will be an in-person/hybrid event in Vienna, Austria, on 23-28 April 2023.

The abstract submission deadline is 10 January 2023, 13:00 CET.

If you want to apply for financial support, submit an abstract by 1 December 2022, 13:00 CET.

The session entitled “Towards reliable Landslide Early Warning Systems” is now open to receive contributions.

The session focuses on LEWSs at all scale (from local to regional) and stages of maturity (i.e., from prototype to active and dismissed ones).
Test cases describing operational application of consolidated approaches are welcome, as well as works dealing with promising recent innovations, even if still at an experimental stage. The session is not focused only on technical scientific aspects, and submissions concerning practical and social aspects are also welcome.

Contributions addressing the following topics will be considered positively:
– conventional and innovative slope-scale monitoring systems for early warning purposes
– conventional and innovative regional prediction tools for warning purposes
innovative on-site instruments and/or remote sensing devices implemented in LEWS
warning models for warning/alert issuing
operational applications and performance analyses of LEWS
communication strategies
emergency phase management
