Invitation

We are glad to announce the International Workshop on "The Role of Geomatics in Hydrogeological Risk" to be held in Padua the 27 and 28 of February 2013.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers, industry developers, users and anyone interested in Hydrogeological risk and Geomatics technologies to discuss the most recent advances in these research fields, to exchange experiences, knowledge and promote future research and development for the mitigation of the Hydrogeological risk.

The workshop will address the following topics:

  • State-of-the-art geomatics technologies for hydrogeological risk prevention, reduction and monitoring.
  • Research experiences and achievements in hydrogeological risk mapping.
  • Pros and cons of different methods and instruments deployed (including maintenance and cost issues).
  • Methods and software tools for data collection, data integration, data analyses with emphasis on multi-source data integration.
  • Methods and software tools for data processing and event-based modelling.
  • Identify the needs and directions for further technological development.

We look forward to see you in Padua!

The workshop will be held in the heart of the city of Padua, at Palazzo del Bo’, an ancient building actually seat of the University. The venue offers convenient access to the main artistic and historical sight-seeings of Padua, like the world famous St. Anthony Basilic (13th –14th century), the Scrovegni Chapel (early 14th century), hosting precious frescoes by Giotto, Palazzo della Ragione (13th–15th century), the Anatomic Theatre (fully on wood, built in 1594) and the oldest Botanic Garden in Europe (1545).
Most of the hotels are also located within walking distance from workshop site.
