Student trip to Bologna on offer

THE UK CHAPTER of the International Geosynthetics Society is running a student papers competition with a trip to the EuroGeo 2 conference in Bologna this autumn as first prize.

The competition is open to anyone 35 or under on 31 December 2000, who is currently enrolled on either a masters (full or part time) or doctorate.

Applicants are expected to be student members of the IGS UK (annual fee £7.50).

The award will be given to the best paper on a geosynthetic related topic, based on four categories: quality of written presentation, content, interest to reader and originality.

Prospective candidates should notify IGS of their intention to submit immediately (official cut-off is 1 May). Final papers must be submitted by 24 July.

IGS's John Greenwood promises 'expenses paid within reasonable limits'.
