The success of the IGS Student Award program continues, now in its seventh award period from 2013 to 2016. The deadline to submit nominees to the program has been extended.
The call for abstracts has been extended and European chapters, along with chapters from the Asia Pacific region, who have not yet nominated students are welcome to do so by 29 February 2016.
This extension was granted to give chapters more time to nominate students for the award. In order to be a success, the Student Awards committee encourages every IGS chapter to get involved with the program and nominate at least one student member from their chapter.
The Awards are presented in the years 2016-2017 and all successful candidates are invited to attend one of the IGS regional conferences in 2016, i.e., GeoAmericas 2016, EuroGeo6, Geosynthetics Asia2016, or GeoAfrica in 2017.
The latest 2015 edition of the IGS News, Volume 31, No. 3, includes a detailed story on the IGS Student Awards Program.
Questions about this program should be directed to the IGS Secretariat’s office: IGSsec@GeosyntheticsSociety.org, or to the Chair of the Awards Task Force, Nathalie Touze-Foltz: firstname.lastname@example.org.
