Participants must be under 35 years of age on 30 June 2019 and may be geotechnical engineers, geologists, mining engineers, hydrogeologists or other geotechnical professionals working in industry or academia. 
Three speakers will be chosen to give a 15 minute presentation, based on an abstract of about 300 words. Talks need not be overly technical or theoretical, but should reflect interesting and challenging aspects of the speaker\’s work that would be of interest to the geotechnical community.
