Several types of slope movements pose a serious risk in many parts of the world.
Hazard evaluation includes the prediction of the area influenced by the phenomenon, of its evolution in space and time, and the understanding of triggering mechanisms.
Aiming at specific risk evaluation, vulnerability must also be taken into consideration.
In general terms, to decrease the risk, innovative approaches may range from modelling to monitoring, to landuse planning and knowledge dissemination, to realizing remedial works.
In this session, studies describing innovative methods of modelling and simulation, methods of calibration and validation, and sensitivity analyses are solicited.
Comparative discussions on potential and limits of different approaches are also within the scope of the session.

A selection of studies presented at this session will be considered for publication in a special issue of a relevant international journal.
