The Sixth International Conference on Scour and Erosion will take place from 27 to 31 August 2012 in Paris, France.

Urbanisation and economic activities have turned erosion from a natural phenomenon to a problem of growing intensity where research is key. It is now one of the main causes of instabilities within hydraulic earth structures and it is capable of causing damage, loss of property and even death. Such hazards consist both in sudden phenomena and slow phenomena, thereby forcing most industrialized countries to rethink their urbanisation plans.

The event will address the latest trends and potential solutions to erosion. It will also discuss research activities currently been carried out to assist local communities in the identification of strategies that could help mitigate the effects of erosion.For further information, please visit: http://www.icse6-2012.com/
