International Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference (7iYGEC) – Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission is open for the 7iYGEC in Sydney in September 2021. This three-day conference for young geotechnical practitioners precedes the International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ICSMGE).

NZGS are coordinating the submission of abstracts and are inviting its young members (35 or under on 31 December 2021) to send their abstracts to ygp@nzgs.org by 11 September 2020.

The NZGS management committee will select the top 4 abstracts to put forward to the conference. There’s more information at http://icsmge2021.org/7iygec/
