The First World Landslide Forum is a global cooperation platform for all types of organizations and individuals. It is neither a pure scientific/engineering meeting, nor a pure governmental and intergovernmental meeting, but a meeting cross-cutting many fields which may contribute to landslide and other related earth system disaster reduction. Your presentation of your activities in this First World Landslide Forum will contribute for the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction.
You are invited to apply to already proposed sessions, or Topic 1 to 7. Your proposal of sessions are also welcome when you know several presenters for the proposed sessions. The final sessions will be decided depending on the number of registrations for the sessions.
