This workshop will focus on the assessment of landslide and debris flow hazards in the Carpathians and other mountain areas based on the monitoring and modelling of these processes using integrated techniques. The aim of this workshop is to introduce the impact of these processes on the building, transport, recreational infrastructure and to discuss what needs to be done to minimize the risk of natural hazards in the mountain regions.

The Workshop offers a rich scientific programme and a great opportunity to obtain useful information about landslide and debris flows activity, to join the scientific debate, create partnerships, and to participate in informal meetings, plus interesting and fascinating field excursions within the Ukrainian Carpathians. It is also important to note that the conference welcomes students and young scientists in order to provide the venue where they can demonstrate and implement their experience in research, as well as absorb the knowledge and skills from experienced scholars.

The workshop will take place in the wonderful city with a lively history – Lviv, which was founded in the 13th century. The city’s well-preserved historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has attractions like the Market Square (Ploshcha Rynok). Climb the tower at the town hall for a great city view. The Lviv Opera House is dazzling and hosts world-class performances.
