2019 Young Geotechnical Professionals

The Sydney Chapter of AGS is calling for presenters for the Young Geotechnical Professionals’ Night on Wednesday 12 June 2019.

Four applicants (from industry and universities) will be chosen to give a 15-minute presentation on their preferred topic. Four to six applicants will be invited to display a poster on their preferred topic.

Successful applicants will be selected based on a one page abstract on the subject that they propose to present (due 22 March) and a one page CV. Following selection, a paper of four to six pages and/or an A1 poster would be required on the presentation subject, submission by 9 May for AGS review.

Talks and posters need not be overly technical or theoretical, but should reflect interesting and challenging aspects of the presenter’s work that would be of interest to the geotechnical community.

Participation is open to industry participants under the age of 35 as at 30 September 2019. Applicants who are chosen to present at the YGP Night will be ineligible to apply for the 2019 AGS NSW Research Award.

Most of the Sydney geotechnical community will be represented on the night. Food and drinks will be available, and students and geotechnical professionals will be welcome to mingle with representatives from the various geotechnical companies.

Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
