To promote young members of ISSMGE to play a major role in various international and regional conferences, the President of ISSMGE – Professor Charles Ng created the Bright Spark award for promising young geotechnical engineers/academics to deliver keynote and invited lectures at these conferences.
The Young Member Presidential Group (YMPG) in cooperation with the Organising Committee of the XVII European Geotechnical Conference would like to invite European member national societies to nominate your most promising young geotechnical engineers as candidates to speak at a special lecture session at the conference to be held in Reykjavík, Iceland 1-6 September 2019 ( https://www.ecsmge-2019.com/). One young engineer will be chosen, from the continent. He/she will have the opportunity to present his/her work as the recipient of the ISSMGE Bright Spark Lecture award.
The award winner will be invited to give a 30-minute presentation at the conference and write a plenary paper. Conference registration for the award winner will be waived. The Bright Spark award will go to the young geotechnical engineer that exemplifies mature research or practice and epitomizes what the ISSMGE is looking for in engineers of tomorrow.
Basic requirements are as follows:
● Age 36 or under at the last day of the conference (6 September 2019)
● Deadline of 31 December 2018 for nominations
● Limit of 2 nominees per member national society
