Annual Poster & Presentation Competition, online

About this event

The Scottish Ground Engineering Group (SGEG) of the ICE and the Central Scotland Regional Group (CSRG) of the Geological Society of London are jointly hosting a poster competition in Geotechnical Engineering and Engineering Geology. Entry is open to ground engineering professionals, including research students. Entry is open for early career (between graduate and chartership) ground engineering professionals and only one person may enter on each poster.

The format for the competition comprises hosting a maximum of 12 posters online by those selected to present. The posters will be displayed on an openly accessible webpage 1 week before the online event. Entrants will answer informal questions from the judges during the week.  Following this, a maximum of four posters shall be advanced to the next stage of the competition which consists of a 10-minute presentation of the poster with a 5-minute question/answer session. This will form the virtual event and guests will be invited to watch the presentations. Selection for entry to Stage 2 will be carried out on the night by a panel of judges

The posters include a summary of the geotechnical or geological work carried out by the entrant, including a statement of the aims of the project or study, the methods employed, and the results gained together with analysis, conclusion and recommendations.
