Young Geomechanical Professionals’ Night (YGPN)

Call for Abstracts

The Sydney Chapter of AGS is calling for presenters for the Young Geomechanical Professionals’ Night on Wednesday 12th June 2024. The best applicants (from industry and universities) will be chosen to give a 10-minute presentation on their preferred topic. Successful applicants will be selected based on a half-page abstract on the subject that they propose to present and a one-page CV (deadline 19th April). Following selection, presentations are due by 30th April for referees’ review. Final presentations including accommodating referees’ comments would be due by 28th May.

Talks 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 and academic participants under the age of 35 as of 1st January 2024.
