    RocExs 2017 is organised on behalf of the Rockfall Expert Network (RocExs.NET) and the Joint Technical Committee of the ISSMFE, ISRM and IAEG (JTC-1) by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya (ICGC).

    Rockfalls are frequent and damaging hazard in mountainous regions and coastal cliffs. They are also frequent in cut slopes of the transportation corridors, in quarries and other excavations. Significant progress has been achieved in the last decades, particularly in the characterization of the rock masses at the potential rockfall sources, in detecting premonitory instability features and monitoring of displacements, in the rockfall modelling and in the design of both protective and stabilization measures. The analysis and management of the rockfall hazard and risk often requires a multidisciplinary approach.The aim of the workshop is to bring together earth scientists, engineers, practitioners, decision makers and end-users, in order to discuss and evaluate new methods, models and approaches for the analysis and management of the rockfalls that have been recently developed.

    The National Data Repository Work Group meetings are held regularly as a platform for member countries and companies from around the world to meet and discuss topics and issues unique to the area of data management for national repositories. Each meeting provides insight into the latest technologies, standards and best practices as well as providing a forum for networking and sharing of ideas with your international peers. This will be the 13th meeting of government regulators, petroleum industry experts and others to discuss the collection and storage of increasing volumes of data associated with oil and gas exploration and production around the world. Regulators have long realized that collecting and storing data is not a competitive activity. Collaborating on business processes, such as data quality, and the related standards for data exchange can deliver real benefits and costs savings. NDR2017 will be hosted by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) located at Professor Olav Hanssens vei 10, Stavanger, Norway.

    The "DIRECTIVE 2007/2/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community ", better known as INSPIRE, celebrates this year the 10th anniversary of its entry into force. A decade of implementation efforts by the EU, EFTA/EEA and Candidate Accession Countries is resulting in a growing online availability of a wide range of spatial data. This data is not only put to use for protecting the environment. It also finds its  application in many activities in our digital society related to e-Government, transport, agriculture, navigation, regional development, energy, health, safety & security, research  and e-Commerce just to name a few. Environmental issues do not stop at borders and neither does the Digital Single Market where spatial data should be able to flow without obstacles to fully reach its potential for sustainable growth.The INSPIRE 2017 conference is organized by the governments of Germany and France, in partnership with the European Commission  and they want to emphasize the importance of working together across borders, and across policy and economic sectors to make sharing of spatial data even more a reality for the wider benefit of our citizens, businesses and environment. At the INSPIRE Conference 2017 more than 1.000 participants – policy makers, public and private sector users and producers of data, services and application, INSPIRE experts and students - are expected from all EU countries and beyond to learn, demonstrate, network  and generally contribute to the debate and implementation of INSPIRE. The conference will offer two days of workshops and three days of plenaries, thematic sessions, a poster session, a commercial exhibition and social events.
