ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS: To be determined by the Organizing Committee of 6th OSMG-2017.
- Best Paper Awards
To promote and support 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. It is based on general quality, originality, contributions, and subject matter. In this forum, the extended versions of the selected papers will be recommended for publication in special issues of Engineering Geology and 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. The Academic Committee members will review all the papers and vote to determine several 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) have been established since 2014. BPAs include 1 Golden Prize, 2 Silvers and 3 Coppers.
ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION PROCESS: Voted by all the delegates. The ballot ticket is in the delegate’s material bag.
