Announcements for Protections2018

First call for abstract submission

Posted: 08-Jun-2017

Abstract submission is now open for Protections 2018, the 3rd International Conference on Protection against Overtopping. The Conference will be held 6-8 June 2018 in Grange-over-Sands in England's Lake District,

The increasing demand for dam, levee and seawall safety and flood protection has motivated new research and advancements and a greater need for cost-effective measures in overtopping protection as a solution for overtopping concerns at levees, dams and seawalls. This conference will bring together leading experts from practice, research, development, and implementation for two days of knowledge exchange followed by a one day technical tour of the Lake District that will include some of the impressive dams in the region.

The organisers invite paper submissions on the following topics:

  • Critical issues related to levees, dams and seawalls
