We are pleased to announce that the 7th International Conference on Debris-Flow Hazards Mitigation will be held June 10 - 13, 2019 in Golden, Colorado, USA on the campus of Colorado School of Mines.

With the beautiful Rocky Mountains covering half the state, Colorado shares the problem of debris-flow hazards with other mountainous areas of the world. Against this backdrop, scientists, engineers, and policy makers from around the world will be able to share new research and ideas in the field of debris flows. This website provides initial details on the conference and venue. Additional information will be added as the conference date approaches.
