During the last three years more than 330 people have come from 48 countries to attend the "International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring" in the 1,000 year-old Castle of Poppi in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, Italy. 42 international companies have exhibited their products during the courses.
The fourth course will be in Rome, and will again include sessions on “New Monitoring Trends” and “Case Histories and Lessons Learned”, with presentations given by practitioners and exhibitors.
In addition, some Master Classes will be held on June 12, the day before the official beginning of the course, led by international experts, specifically oriented to provide practical basic know-how on use of the most common monitoring systems (inclinometers, piezometers, total stations, GNSS, extensometers, terrestrial RADAR). Each class will cover the following main topics: installation, data acquisition, data processing, tricks and tips from everyday experience.
