Welcome to the 4th Slope Tectonics Conference!

14-18 October 2017, Kyoto, Japan
(14-15 for meeting at Oubaku Plaza, Kyoto University,
16-18 for excursion to Kii Mountain Range

We are pleased to welcome you to Kyoto to attend the 4th Slope Tectonics Conference at Kyoto University. We will have two days meeting in Kyoto and following three days field trip in the Kii Mountains, a world heritage, in Kii Peninsula, central Japan.

Slope Tectonics is a young geoscience discipline that deals with slope movement processes controlled by various factors, such as geological structures, topography, hydrology, rock weathering, and geotechnical properties of slope materials. The main aim of the conference is to bring together researchers dealing with slope movements from different approaches in order to improve the general understanding of slope processes. The location of the post-conference field trip provides us the perfect setting to view sites related to one of the main topics: rock slope deformation and catastrophic failure in accretionary complexes and granitic rocks.

This conference follows the successful three Slope Tectonics Conferences in Lausanne (2008), Vienna (2011), and Trondheim (2014). The results of the previous conferences have been published as Geological Society of London, Special Publication v. 351, and as a special issue of Tectonophysics v. 605, and another one is in preparation for a special issue of Geomorphology. This conference also aims to produce a special issue in a relevant journal.
