In recent decades, earthquake-induced landslides have occurred and been reported worldwide. The landslides can be catastrophic and pose immediate threats to people and properties, leading to large socio-economic losses in the affected areas. Therefore, the research on design of slope against seismic activities to effectively mitigate risks and reduce losses due to earthquake-induced landslides, has attracted more and more international attention.
In order to bring together academic scientists, leading engineers, and students to exchange and share their experiences and research results, the International Symposium on Seismic Performance and Design of Slopes (ISSPDS) is organized. The ISSPDS began in 2018 in Shanghai China. The second ISSPDS will be held in the world-famous city of Edinburgh.
