The 6th International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring will be arranged with a slightly different format respect to the previous editions: this year will be concentrated in one day of Field Trip (29 May) and two days of oral sessions (30-31 May).

This is a course for practitioners, held by practitioners with wide field experience. The emphasis is on why and how to monitor field performance.

Following the great success from last year, and hoping to reach out as many practitioners as possible, special sessions will be dedicated to leading experts and to participants’ presentations.


In particular, the MAIN COURSE will be organized in 5 sessions:

  • Sessions “A”: General concepts of geotechnical and structural monitoring

  • Sessions “B”: Panel Discussion

  • Sessions “C”: New Trends in Monitoring

  • Sessions “E”: Case History

  • Sessions “P”: Presentations by Partners


The Case History session will cover many appealing topics as well as:

  • Oil&Gas

  • Dams

  • Transportations Asset and Tunnel

  • Structural Health Monitoring

  • Mining

  • Landslides
