Betreff: ICOLD 13th International Benchmark, Lausanne Switzerland, 9-11th September 2015 - Call for Contributions

Dear Sir,

To promote the future ICOLD Benchmark Workshop dedicated essentially to the safety analysis of dams in accordance with National/International Guidelines, I take this opportunity to send to you a reminder about the conference that will take place at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) from 9th to 11th September 2015 (Flyer and Inscription form enclosed).

Moreover, I would like to state the importance of dam safety, (the subject of theme C) knowing that you fulfill the role of Engineer-Expert within your company for an important number of Swiss Dams and others abroad.
In this context, it would perhaps be interesting to share your experience with others in the sense of continuing professional development within the field of Dam Engineering. Hence, a contribution from you on Theme C would be most warmly welcomed without of course any obligations and/or other commitments from your side.

I would like to make it clear that this email is on the behalf of the ICOLD Technical Committee A and has strictly no relation with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy.

I look forward to perhaps welcoming you at the EPFL in September 2015.

Freundliche Grüsse
