Joint Societies Award

This award is presented at the ANZ Geomechanics Conference (typically in 4-year intervals). The award is made for the most valuable conference paper, excluding invited or special papers. Judging will be undertaken by a committee consisting of Australasian VP’s for ISSMGE, ISRM and IAEG, and the Chairpersons of the Australian Geomechanics Society and New Zealand Geotechnical Society.

The winner may be either a member of the AGS or NZGS.

The award was first presented in 1996.
