5th International Conference on Soil, Bio-and Eco-Engineering

As in the preceding SBEE conference series, we will bring together researchers, practitioners, geotechnical and civil engineers, biologists, ecologists, geomorphologists and foresters to discuss current problems in soil-resource sustainability, soil erosion and slope-stability research, and how to address these problems using soil, bio- and eco-engineering techniques. The Verein Für Ingenieurbiologie with the European Federation of Soil and Water Bioengineering collaborates whit the School of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences HAFL of the Bern University of Applied Sciences.

Conference topics include 

Root-soil interactions and distribution 

Root reinforcement 

Soil erosion and conservation 

Riverbank and coastline protection measures 

Slope stability modelling 

Effects of vegetation on hillslope hydrology 

Bioengineering, ecology and biodiversity 

Eco-DRR measures, protection forests, and soil bioengineering 

Risk management and decision support systems 

Benefits and liabilities in slope and erosion control 


Important deadlines 

Abstract submission (oral and poster): 30 November 2019

Early-bird registration closes: 31 January 2020
