BGA Annual Conference

The BGA Annual Conference is an all day event, to be held on the 19 June at the ICE, London.

The event is free to attend, but registration in advance is required via this link.

The full programme can be downloaded here.

The programme will include presentations from young engineers with the BGA’s Cooling Prize winner and the MSc Dissertation Prize winner. The morning’s session also includes talks on mining and minerals in relation to the UK construction industry and a talk on dealing with mine waste. These talks will be followed by a discussion on how to improve the way we communicate controversial geological issues.

The BGA’s AGM will follow a lunch break. The AGM will include a number of presentations as well as the award of a Skempton Medal to David Hartwell and the Award of the BGA Medal

In the afternoon there will be a talk on the Crossrail legacy which will describe what has been learnt from this major project and how to access this information.

There will also be a talk about the Temporary Works Forum which established a postgraduate course to help train engineers in temporary works design and construction. This links nicely with the following presentation on “special foundations” – a term that has significance in terms of the Party Wall Act.

Presentations in the afternoon will also include talks on chemical and microbiological processes in geotechnical engineering, the role of geophysics in railway and highway construction and a discussion on sustainable infrastructure.

The programme will conclude with brief updates on the activities of the AGS and development of RoGEP.

Alongside the conference programme there is an exhibition with posters from various universities detailing their current research.

The event will conclude with drinks reception
