    The XII IAEG Congress celebrates 50 years from the IAEG foundation. The aim of this Congress is to testify the fundamental scientific role of Engineering Geology in the last 50 years, through the contributions of successful, well-known researchers. At the same time, the congress aims to thrust forth the IAEG future role by involving young, enthusiastic scientists making them conscious of the challenges, sometimes hard, that the engineering geology is facing. We want them to be able to overcome future difficulties in geo-environmental management and habitat protection. An important goal of the XII International IAEG Congress is to promote and increase the relationships between scientists and Engineering Geology professional operators (Owners, Practitioners, Design Firms and Contractors). The integration of the two worlds will have helpful effects on surveys, design and construction procedures, and monitoring techniques.The Congress will also offer an extraordinary opportunity for scientists,companies and agencies to meet and improve together the current state of Engineering Geology. For this purpose keynote lectures will be delivered by both academic representatives and professional operators.
