Western Australia Chapter

AGS Young Geotechnical Professionals’ Evening Seminar and the 8th Dr Baden Clegg Award

Various speakers

The Western Australian Chapter of the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) invites participants for the 2009 Young Geotechnical Professional’s Seminar Evening. Participants must be under 35 years on 31st July 2009 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 the abstract of about 300 words on their talk. 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.


  • First Place: Trophy, $500 + a copy of the AGS Journal on the Engineering Geology of Perth (parts 1 & 2)
  • Runners up: $100 + a copy of the AGS Journal on the Engineering Geology of Perth (parts 1 & 2)

Most of the WA geotechnical community will be represented on the night and the speakers will be given great exposure. There will be food and drinks available before the talks where students and geotechnical professionals will be able to network with representatives from 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.
