We are very sorry to inform you that the Tenth International Symposium on Land Subsidence ( TISOLS) in the Netherlands has been postponed to 17-21 May 2021 due to the general concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus and the travel restriction for many participants. As your comfort and safety is our top priority, it has been decided that this is the best course of action to give as many people as possible the chance to attend the congress without exposing them to health risks.

Living with Subsidence
From 20 – 24 April 2020, the Tenth International Symposium on Land Subsidence (TISOLS) will take place in Delft - Gouda, the Netherlands.
Land subsidence, or land-level lowering, is a major problem that threatens the viability and sustainable economic development for millions of people throughout the world, especially in (but not restricted to) highly urbanized coastal areas. It is often a result of overexploitation of groundwater resources. The total costs globally amount up to many billions of dollars annually.
At TISOLS in the Netherlands, we provide a platform to share our understanding of land subsidence, reliable data, and innovative techniques. Ultimately, we aim to increase the acknowledgement of the land subsidence problem in order to devise targeted strategies and solutions for long-term sustainable living conditions in subsiding areas. This means that at TISOLS we take on the challenge that lies in linking hydrological, geotechnical and geological knowledge to policy and socially acceptable solutions.
TISOLS is organized under the auspices of the Unesco IHP Land Subsidence International Initiative. This working group has endeavored to improve and disseminate knowledge on land subsidence since the 1970s, through International Symposia on Land Subsidence, collaborative projects and publications.
