- 3rd HUTCHINSON LECTURE - 3rd JTC WORKSHOP NORWAY, 2022 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Joint Technical Committee (JTC1) on Natural Slopes and Landslides of the Federation of the International Geo-engineering Societies (FedIGS) is organizing the 3rd JTC1 workshop, which will be held in Norway in Spring, 2022; the provisional title of the event is Landslide initiation, prediction and risk mitigation.
The workshop will host the 3rd Hutchinson Lecture, which has been established by the same JTC1 to award a scholar, aged 42 or less at the time of the event, who has significantly contributed to the development of knowledge in the field of slope stability and landslides. The Hutchinson Lecture should deal with a subject consistent with the workshop issues. The lecture will be published in an international journal.
The Hutchinson lecturer, who should have a disciplinary background from one or more of the domains of the geosciences, will be chosen - by vote of JTC1 Committee members - among candidates proposed by national societies. All countries are then asked to propose their own candidate. The proposals, accompanied by the candidate CV, should be submitted to the JTC1 chairman, Luciano Picarelli, by September 15th 2021 ([email protected]) .
