6th International Conference on Soil Bio- and Eco-engineering The Use of Vegetation to Improve Slope Stability

Xalapa, Mexico, 30 June – 4th July 2025

This conference is the sixth in the series ‘The Use of Vegetation to Improve Slope Stability.’ The first congress was held at Thessaloniki, Greece, 2004 and since then, conferences have been held in China, Canada, Australia and Switzerland. Attendees will unite to discuss science and practice when managing vegetated slopes. Topics range from ecology and soil science to civil engineering and cover a multitude of scales from micro- to ecosystem level.

The conference will take place at the University of Veracruz in Xalapa, Mexico. A field excursion will be organized to appreciate the unique geology and vegetation of this volcanic region.
