• Five keynote lectures

• Recent development in physical modeling of landslides

• Recent development in numerical modeling of landslides

• Recent development in soil and rock testing techniques, application and analysis methods

• Recent advancements in the methods of slope stability and deformation analyses

• Recent development in disaster risk assessment
