The Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium (YGES 2018) will be held at the University of Surrey on 2nd and 3rd July 2018. An optional workshop is planned for 4 July 2018.

The Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium 2018 will bring together students, researchers and practicing engineers to discuss the latest advances in geotechnical engineering and how to address the current ground engineering challenges. For practising engineers, this is an opportunity to showcase innovative projects which they are involved in or are very proud of.

For MSc and PhD students, this is a valuable opportunity to present your work and get feedback from professionals and build relationships with colleagues from different organizations and sectors. To be eligible for an oral presentation at the Symposium, industry delegates should be under 35 years of age on the first day of the Symposium. However, there is no age limit for students. The winner of the best presentation at the Symposium will be invited to present at the annual BGA conference at ICE in June 2019.

There is no restriction on the topic other than it must demonstrate innovation in research, design or construction in geotechnical engineering. We welcome submissions from both research and industry projects.

Key dates

  • • Deadline for registration: 30 May 2018
  • • Deadline for submission of summary paper: 30 May 2018.
