Abstract submission is now open for the 7th International Conference on Debris Flow Hazards Mitigation. Convened by the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists, the conference will be held in Golden, Colorado USA on June 10-13, 2019. With the beautiful Rocky Mountains covering half the state, Colorado shares the problem of debris-flow hazards with other mountainous areas of the world. Against this backdrop, scientists, engineers, and policy makers from around the world will be able to share new research and ideas in the field of debris flows. Field trips will take place both before and after those dates.
