NSGG Postgraduate Symposium 2014
13th May 2014 at British Geological Survey, Keyworth
The Geological Society’s Near Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) announces their Postgraduate Symposium 2014, to be held on Tuesday 13 May 2014 at BGS Keyworth. The event will provide a national forum for postgraduates currently working in the areas of near-surface and applied geophysics to meet and network with each other.
The programme will comprise a keynote lecture and a number of thematically grouped sessions where postgraduates present research-in-progress papers (15+5 mins) about their PhD or Master’s projects and answer questions from their peers.
NSGG warmly invites contributions from all interested postgraduates in the UK and beyond. Please send short abstracts (300 words maximum) to the convenors (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Undergraduates and the wider Geological Society membership wishing to get an insight into current research in near-surface geophysics are most welcome to attend.
