The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) is the principal
association for geotechnical engineers in the United Kingdom.
The BGA is calling for submissions for the BGA Medal, which is awarded annually to a paper written by a BGA member (or members) for “meritorious contributions to geotechnical science or practice”. The award is based on the best published paper (in an international journal and from BGA, ISSMGE and ISRM conferences) authored or co-authored by a BGA member (or members) in the previous calendar year.
Submissions (comprising the paper and application form) for consideration of the BGA Medal award are invited for papers published in the 2020 calendar year.
Only one submission from a set of BGA authors/co-authors is allowed. This does not preclude a single author appearing on more than one submission if the other papers have a substantially different authorship.
Submissions should be via the Prizes page. Full rules and the application form are downloadable here. The deadline for submissions is 31 January 2021.
