Western Australia Chapter

Young Geotechnical Engineers, 10th Baden Clegg Award


The Western Australian Chapter of the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) invites participants for the 2012 Young Geotechnical Professional’s Seminar Evening. Participants must be under 35 years of age on 30 June 2012 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.


First Place: Trophy, $500 + a copy of the Australian Geomechanics Journal Collection on DVD
Runners up: $100 + a copy of the Australian Geomechancis Journal Collection on DVD

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 and opportunities 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.
