About this event

The BGA Annual Conference is a full day conference to showcase the best of British research and practice in geotechnical engineering, with leading speakers from research and industry as well as young geotechnical engineers presenting their research, a poster display, an industry exhibition and concluding with an informal drinks reception.

Speakers have been drawn from both academic research and geotechnical practice and will explore amongst other topics, mining, special foundations, and railway and highway construction, including the Crossrail legacy. During the course of the morning session young members of the BGA will be represented by this year's winner of the Cooling Prize and the winner of the Prize for the best Geotechnical MSc dissertation.

Following lunch, the BGA's AGM will take place at which prizes will be presented to the recipients of various BGA prizes and awards, including the Skempton Medal to David Hartwell. The day will conclude with a drinks reception in the Exhibition Area of the Great Hall offering networking opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere.

The detailed programme is attached.

There are opportunities for commercial organisations to sponsor the conference and limited areas to exhibit products and services. Space for the exhibition will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Members of the BGA are invited to prepare posters on engineering or research projects for display during the conference.
