• The 5th International Conference on Long-Term Behaviour and Environmentally Friendly Rehabilitation Technologies of Dams (LTBD2020)




  • About:
    The 5th International Conference on Long-Term Behaviour and Environmentally Friendly Rehabilitation Technologies of Dams (LTBD2020) will be held from October 30 to November 1, 2020 at Hohai University in Nanjing, China. Hohai University is a state key university under the direct administration of the Ministry of Education of China. The Chinese name “Hohai” means water and sea. The university was founded in 1915 and has earned a worldwide reputation for its research and education. The city of Nanjing is the second largest city in eastern China, with a total population of 8.18 million. The city, whose name means ‘Southern Capital’ has a prominent place in Chinese history and culture, not only with the stirring mountains and gentle waters which surround it, but also with its more than 2400 years of urban history. The LTBD2020 conference will provide an excellent opportunity for high level scientists, engineers, operators and young PhD students to present and exchange their experiences and the latest developments related to the design, construction materials, performance, rehabilitation and environmental aspects of earth, rockfill and concrete dams. Participants intending to give a talk or to present a poster are invited to submit a two-page abstract in English.
