IGRS 2016


The 5th International Geo-hazards Research Symposium (IGRS 2016), organized by International Geo-Hazards Society, will take place in Taipei, Taiwan from Monday Oct. 17 to Thursday Oct. 20, 2016. The venue was confirmed during the 4th IGRS held at the NASA Ames Research Center in California, USA in Dec. 2014. After the demise of Prof. Tsanyao Frank Yang in March 2015, who was the Convener for the IGRS 2016, the International Committee decided to organize the 5th IGRS as a memorial conference for Prof. Yang to commemorate his monumental contribution towards the International Geo-Hazards Society and research in various geo-hazards fields. He envisioned holding the IGRS in Taiwan to bring together the scientific advances in obtaining perception and response to the geo-hazards.

We look forward to meeting you in Taipei
