Spam! Spam! Spam! Again much Spam from WIT and WIT press!! Fake Seminars! Fake Diplomas!

WIT Short Course on Floods and Debris Flow 2011


Organised By: Wessex Institute of Technology, UK

Course Presenters: Prof Daniele De Wrachien, Dr Antonella Frigerio, Dr Reinaldo Garcia, Prof Stefano Mambretti,
Dr Guido Mazza

Please find details of this 3-day short course by visiting our website at: http://www.wessex.ac.uk/floods-debris.html





Floods and debris flows are among the most destructive of all water related processes. They affect both rural and urban areas in a wide range of morphoclimatic environments and in recent years have attracted more and more attention from the scientific and professional communities and concern from the public due to the death toll they claim. The increased frequency of these natural hazards, coupled with climatic change predictions and urban development, suggests that they are set to worsen in the future.

Taking this into consideration, the objectives of the course are:

To provide basic understanding of floods and debris flows using the most advanced and up-to-date methodologies currently available

To improve capabilities for modelling debris and water floods in both rural and urban environments
To develop hazard maps based on model results
To assess risk and design prevention and mitigation measures
To use state-of-the-art mathematical models
Participants will gain a broad overview of global water related disasters, including risk assessment, development of hazard maps and design of prevention and mitigation measures.

  1. Jane Chantler and Irene Moreno from the ridiculous "Wessex Institute of Technology" and WIT Press are really bad persons cheating everybody with the fake conferences of Carlos Brebbia. Bogus conferences. Yes, veyr much bogus conferences making noise and no additive value in science. Just to make money . Only money as the bogus, fake Ieee conferences.

  2. I have been to two Wessex Institute conferences. Seeing the quality of the presentations my guess is that any abstract will be accepted. They are fairly lightweight conferences held in interesting places in the world. By attending the conferences I have made some interesting contacts. I have some extra publications that look OK, at least on the surface. The conferences are not academically rigorous, they are expensive, they are very small and they consequently do not have the leading scholars attending them. They do appeal to people who are trying to make their mark, because you do get a seemingly attractive publication (book chapter) out of them. It does seem to me that they are a money making ruse for the owner of the institute (Carlos Brebbia)that is succesful because of the academic imperative to publish. I won't go to another one. There are many more reputable conferences to choose from other than those put on by Wessex Institute.

  3. Director of Wessex Institute (Carlos Brebbia) is a Hustler and money is his everything.

  4. I used to know some one who used to work for this so called (Wessex) institute!! Run by a self assigned Professor!! Brebbia as a non profit making institute, it is a big scam. Wessex Institute is a big money making machine for Mr Brebbia by offering very low quality courses and conferences at very high prices.The last thing is in Mr Brebbia's mind, is any contribution to training & education. Mr Brebbia keeps WIT as a non-profit organisation by draining out all the profit that WIT makes through other bogus companies that he has set up, charging WIT bogus fees.
    Mr Brebbia is basically a charlatan who has found a way of making easy money from trusting academics and through his chain of corrupt academics who knowingly buy his low quality products and services for other favors in return.
