12th International Symposium on Geo-disaster Reduction

College of Engineering and Computer Science at California State University, Fullerton in collaboration with Geo-Institute Los Angeles Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers are going to organize the 12th International Symposium on Geo-Disaster Reduction in Fullerton, California, USA on September 5th and 6th, 2014. This series of international symposiums has been an instrumental forum for the advancement of geo-disaster reduction. Geoscientists and engineers from the world have contributed and benefited significantly during these events in the past. The forthcoming event is going to be another building block to enhance the geotechnical engineering knowledge and to further understand geo-disaster reduction. All geoscientists and engineers working in the field of geo-disasters are kindly requested to submit their pre-registration form/s together with their details within the stated deadline. Your kind cooperation in this regard will greatly help the organizers plan and hold this important event successfully.
