Frans Barends Award
During TISOLS we will give the Frans Barends Award for the best TISOLS abstract by a Young Professional. We are now collecting nominations. Each first author of a TISOLS paper (both oral and poster), who is younger than 35 years during the conference (date of birth April 20th, 1988 or later), and who will be present at TISOLS, can be nominated. Nominations can be handed in by mailing to the Chair of the Frans Barends Award Jury, Peter Fokker.
Prof. Frans Barends (1946-2017) was an outstanding geo-scientist who has been one of the driving forces of the UNESCO Land Subsidence International Initiative. During his whole career he was supporting young scientists in the field of geomechanics.
Among the outstanding characteristics of prof. Barends were his ability to recognize young scientific talent and his skills to motivate them. Therefore the aim of the award is to encourage young people to practice research and publish on the topic of land subsidence in its broadest sense.
The assessment of the nominated papers will take place based on the following criteria:
- Scientific novelty
- Quality of presentation
- Relevance for Land Subsidence
The Award consists of a certificate and an amount of 500 EUROS. The winner of the award will be announced, and the award will be given to the winner during the TISOLS conference dinner on Wednesday April 19th, 2023.
The Jury consists of
Peter A. Fokker (TNO; Chair of the Scientific Committee of TISOLS; email@example.com).
Pietro Teatini (University of Padova; Chair of the Unesco Land Subsidence International Initiative)
Shujun Ye (Nanjing University; Co-chair of the Unesco Land Subsidence International Initiative)
