2020 International Symposium on Slope Stability in Open Pit Mining and Civil Engineering

Slope Stability 2020 will provide a forum for open pit mining and civil engineering practitioners, consultants, researchers and suppliers worldwide to exchange views on best practice and state-of-the-art slope technologies. Best practice with respect to pit slope investigations, design, implementation and performance monitoring will be discussed during the symposium. View the list of 200+ accepted abstracts.
