British Geotechnical Association Annual Conference, London

About this event

This year the conference has been structured by themes rather than having separate half day sessions for research and practice although the speakers have been drawn from both backgrounds.

In the morning there will be a discussion on issues related to flooding and then a talk highlighting the Institution of Civil Engineers' initiatives related to knowledge transfer. During the course of the morning session young members of the BGA will be represented by this year's winner of the Cooling Prize who will give her prize winning presentation. The winner of the Prize for the best Geotechnical MSc dissertation will also give a presentation summarising the results of their research.

Following lunch, the BGA's AGM will take place at which prizes will be presented to the recipients of various BGA prizes and awards. After the AGM there will be talks by speakers who will discuss topics related to monitoring. Full details are available on the programme attached.

The conference will conclude with a drinks reception in the Exhibition Area of the Great Hall offering a further networking opportunity in a relaxed atmosphere. Please note that the conference will not be broadcast live or recorded.

The BGA is grateful to its commercial sponsors for enabling this event to take place free of charge.
