9TH International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring (02 – 06 May 2023)

It is becoming increasingly evident how the role of geotechnical and structural monitoring is a fundamental element for sustainable development and risk reduction. Geological processes, climate change, and natural resources exploitation are causing potentially dangerous interactions with our natural and build environment. Therefore, geotechnical and structural monitoring is essential to improve everyone’s safety, infrastructure optimization, and time and cost reductions in engineering design.

Over the years, several technical solutions and tools have been developed in the market. This growth represents an amazing professional opportunity for operators, but it also determines a critical need for constant training to maintain adequate knowledge to satisfy clients’ requests.

With the aim of offering engineers, geologists, technicians, project managers, and risk management managers training aligned with new developments in the industry, NHAZCA S.r.l. has been organizing the International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring (ICGSM) since 2014. This initiative has grown year after year and has seen the participation of more than 700 experts, scholars, and industry professionals from over 60 countries on six continents.

Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 9th edition of the International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring to be held in Rome from 02 to 06 May 2023. A 10% discount on the participation fee will be dedicated to Association of Geohazard Professionals (AGHP) members.

The ICGSM is one of the most important international professional training events on monitoring activities in geotechnical and structural engineering, focusing mainly on the following areas:

  • Big and small infrastructures
  • Tunnels
  • Dams
  • Ground excavations
  • Natural and artificial slopes
  • Construction foundations
  • Transportation
  • Mining
  • Oil&Gas
  • Historical building management

This new edition of ICGSM has been structured to offer participants a broad overview of the most interesting topics and issues in the field of geotechnical and structural monitoring through a rich training program:

  • 2 May 2023: Ice Breaking Field Trip (3.00 h)
  • 3 May 2023: Round Tables “Perspectives on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring for Resilient Natural and Built Environment” (4.00 h – FREE ACCESS)
  • 4-5 May 2023: Master Classes (8.00 h)
  • 6 May 2023: Acuto Field Trip (6.00 h)

The course opens with a full morning dedicated to Round Tables under the theme “Perspectives on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring for Resilient Natural and Built Environment,” where Experts and Authorities will discuss the perspective of monitoring from different viewpoints: Academia, Contractors, Designers, Manufacturers, Insurance, Policy Makers, Service Providers, and Research.

The following two days will be dedicated to Exhibition and Master Classes.

The Master Classes will focus on the application of “Instrumentation and Monitoring” (I&M) to a series of geotechnical and structural problems such as historical monuments, infrastructures (railways, bridges, tunnels), landslides, exploitation of natural resources (dams, mining, and oil and gas) by addressing specific problems and possible solutions. Lectures will present the fundamental topics to be considered in the design, construction, installation, management, and interpretation of data.

An interesting Exhibition Area (free access) has been organized in the same location as the Master Classes. Participants will have the opportunity to network with the main players in the field of geotechnical and structural monitoring.

In addition, the first and last days of this ninth edition will be dedicated to two field trips held in Central Italy to increase the knowledge acquired during the training courses.
