The increasing demand for dam, levee and seawall safety and flood protection has motivated new research and advancements and a greater need for cost-effective measures in overtopping protection as a solution for overtopping concerns at levees, dams and seawalls. This conference will bring together leading experts from practice, research, development, and implementation for two days of knowledge exchange followed by a technical tour of the Lake District including some of the impressive dams which can be found there. This conference will focus on:

Critical issues related to levees, dams and seawalls
New developments and advanced tools
Overtopping protection systems
Overtopping simulators / test facilities
Overtopping failure mechanisms
System design and performance
Applications and innovative solutions
Case histories of overtopping events
Physical modelling techniques and recent studies
Numerical modelling methods.
