  • National context & Supporting institutions


    The French application takes advantage of a strong network involved in geosciences and geomechanics applied to slope instabilities. Even though an important French delegation has taken part to the previous editions, this International Symposium has never been hosted in France.

    The proposed application is supported by the following institutions, all being representative of the French community involved in slope engineering:
  • The CFMR (French Society for Rock Mechanics)
    Visit the website : https://www.cfmr-roches.org/

  • The CFMS (French Society for Soil Mechanics)
    Visit the website : https://www.cfms-sols.org/
  • The CFGI (French Society for Engineering Geology)
    Visit the website : http://www.cfgi-geologie.fr/
  • The regional platform I-RISK, located in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, promotes the collaborative innovation in the analysis and mitigation of natural hazards, involving academic researchers and industrial partners. Standing as one of the main structuring actions facilitated by INDURA, a French cluster dedicated to infrastructures that serve the quality of life, I-RISK gathers many collaborators involved in mass-driven natural hazard mitigation.

  • The French national project C2ROP, supported by IREX (Institute for applied research and experimentation in civil engineering) aims to build a coordinated toolchain (hazard – risk – protection), to bring out a repository of risk and its acceptable cost, organize and develop the community, to provide structured results from digital and experimental equipment tools, and finally position the French expertise internationally. This collaborative project will bring the products of research available to those who need them, especially the owners and infrastructure managers.
    This project was initiated in 2015, and is being renewed for 5 years (until end of 2025)

  • The International Research Network GeoMech (Multi-Physics and Multi-scale Couplings in Geo-environmental Mechanics) has been labelled by the CNRS (French Scientific Research Academy) since 2008, and is intended to promote collaborative research between the most famous international laboratories specialized in geomechanics.
    Catastrophic failures and triggering mechanisms applied to natural and engineered slopes are one of the 3 most active research lines.

  • It is worth noting that the French national project C2ROP has been in charge (with the support of IREX and INDURA institutions) of the International Symposium on Rock Slope Stability series since 2016 (Lyon, 2016 ; Chambéry, 2018; Chambéry, 2021).
    By merging RSS and ISL in 2024, more emphasis is put on the broad topic of slope instability, increasing therefore the impact of the forthcoming IS Landslides 2024.
  • This important point suggests that the French scientific community working in the field of slope stability is ready to welcome IS Landslides 2024, after the successful RSS 2016 and RSS 2018 events. It makes even more sense to merge IS Landslides 2024 and RSS 2024.
     

    IS RSS and IS Landslides communities are closely connected, however not identical. Thus, by merging the two events, we put more emphasis on the broad topic of slope instability, and therefore increase the impact of the forthcoming IS Landslides 2024. We do specify that this merging will run for the (2024) forthcoming event, and that the two series will continue separately afterwards (IS Landslides 2028 and IS RSS 2027)
