Welcome

Following the success of our 2018 Winter School dedicated to Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment, we are pleased to announce the 2nd edition in winter 2019 in the same location (Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland).

Geomechanics, Environment and Energy are increasingly related and contemporary themes. The goal of the school is to provide the participants with a deep understanding on selected topics in Geomechanics which are fundamental for applications related to Energy and the Environment.

Morning lectures are scheduled in the first part of the day. Extended breaks are given to review the course material, to go skiing, or to enjoy the wonderful landscape of the Swiss Alps at Villars-sur-Ollon. Late-afternoon gatherings are foreseen for the second set of lectures of the day. Evening sessions will be devoted to presentations from the participants to share ideas with the experts.

This Winter School is organized in the framework of the international journal Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment.

The flyer of the event can be downloaded here.

Registrations are open.
