- Outstanding Contribution Award
To acknowledge the significant contribution of some invited speakers of the OSMG forums to the development and application of opto-electronic sensor based monitoring technology in geo-engineering, the Outstanding Contribution Awards (OCAs) have been established since 2012.
The past awardees include Prof. Farhad Ansari, Prof. Xiaoyi Bao, Prof. An-Bin Huang, Dr. Wolfgang R. Habel, Prof. Zhishen Wu, Prof. Luc Thévenaz, Dr. Il-Bum Kwon, Prof. Jian-Hua Yin, and Prof. Michael D. Todd.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS: Those who have given two invited presentations in the past four OSMG forums.
- Best Paper Awards
To acknowledge and encourage the research and development works of non-invited speakers on opto-electronic sensor based monitoring technology in geo-engineering, the Best Paper Awards (BPAs) have been established since 2012. In this forum, these papers will be recommended for publication in special issues of Journal of Civil Structural Health Monitoring, Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS: This award is granted to those non-invited speakers whose papers are written in English and will be published in the 6th OSMG-2017 proceedings as original papers. In order to qualify for the award, the selected best papers must be presented at the forum. The Academic Committee members will review all the papers and vote to determine 6-12 best papers as the winners in this forum. The voting process will be in anonymous and the whole process will be monitored by the Chair and Co-Chairs of the Academic Committee (non-voting).
- Best Poster Awards
To encourage the forum participants to exhibit their research achievement and works on opto-electronic sensor based monitoring technology in geo-engineering, the Best Poster Awards (BPAs) is first established in this forum. BPAs include 1 Golden Prize, 2 Silvers and 3 Coppers.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS: Voted by all delegates, and the ballot ticket is in delegate’s material bag.
* All of the above awards will be issued on the banquet.
