The Canadian Geotechnical Society, the Association of Engineering Geologists and the Joint Technical Committee on Landslides (JTC-1) invite you to the 11th International Symposium on Landslides (ISL) and the 2nd North American Symposium on Landslides (NASL) at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta, Canada from June 3 to 8, 2012. The theme of the symposium will be Landslides and Engineered Slopes: Protecting Society through Improved Understanding.
The Technical Committee invites participants from industry, government and academia to submit abstracts pertaining to the investigation, classification, monitoring, analysis and mitigation of landslides.

With an expected attendance of between 400 and 500 delegates, an important component of ISL/NASL 2012 will be the trade show and the participation of our sponsors from across Canada, North America and around the world.

The ISL/NASL 2012 trade show will run from Sunday afternoon until Tuesday afternoon and, as all breaks and lunches on Monday and Tuesday will be held in the trade exhibition hall, will be an excellent way to connect with delegates.
