GeoAsia7 Young Engineers Conference

The Young Engineers Conference, scheduled to take place on the 31st of October at GeoAsia7, has adopted a virtual mode of delivery. This will allow Young Members from across the world to attend the Conference.

The Young Engineers Conference requires only a two-page extended abstract from participants and registration is only $60. This session will allow Young Members to present to their peers in an informal atmosphere. You can discuss pitfalls of your case history, future steps in your research work, or use the audience as a sounding board for current challenges in your work/research. Second authors of papers submitted to the main conference are also invited to present the results of that paper at this session. IGS Young Members are under the age of 36 at the time of the conference.
