Dear colleagues,

This is the first announcement for the 2018 Wegener General Assembly on 
Earth Deformation and the study of earthquakes to take place in 
Grenoble, France, 10-13th September, 2018. Please save the date.

We particularly draw your attention on the session "*Multi-timescale 
Glacier and Landslide Processes*" (described below). Abstract submission 
deadline: *15 June 2018*

You will find details of the proposed sessions, relevant dates, and 
conference events in the attached flyer and on the conference website at 

We look forward to welcoming you in Grenoble,
B. Bookhagen, P. Lacroix and E. Berthier, Chair of session 6

*Sessions > 6. Multi-timescale glacier and landslide processes*

Deformation and kinematic of glaciers, landslides, and rock glaciers 
vary over multiple time scales responding to internal and external 
forcing factors. Five decades of remote-sensing data and recent 
satellite launches with short temporal and high spatial resolution 
enable unprecedented detailed studies of transport and deformation 
processes over extensive areas. Continuous monitoring and decadal trend 
analysis allow a more refined understanding and impact of forcing 
factors such as earthquakes, climate change, and infrastructural 

In this session we particularly encourage presentations related to: (i) 
deformation of glaciers and landslides from sub-seasonal to decadal time 
scales; (ii) precursory patterns of gravitational failures from space; 
(iii) volume change and mass balances of glaciers; (iv) 
calibration/validation of mechanical models of glaciers/landslides from 
geodetic measurements; (v) localized and bulk deformation; (vi) 
glacier-landslide interactions, including impact of debris on glacier 
melt processes and impact of glacier retreat on slope stabilities.

This session wish also to address the specificities of monitoring from 
space and in the field small and rapidly changing objects such as 
landslide and glaciers, compared to active faults.
