Preparations for the upcoming TSG AGM from the 9th-11th January 2024 in St Andrews are in full swing and the website for the 2024 edition is now up and running:
There you can find more about the programme, conference fees, abstract submission and registration.
If you want to present a poster or talk, the abstract deadline is the 15th of November 2023, so there is still plenty of time to get an abstract in and present some exciting research at the AGM in January.
St. Andrews, Scotland
The TSG Annual Meeting will be held 9th-11th January 2024 at St. Andrews, Scotland. A post conference TSG field trip will be offered to all attendees on January 12th.
A registration portal will be made available in early September. We expect early bird registration costs to be ~£110 for students, retired and unemployed and a full rate early bird cost will be ~£240. This discounted rate is expected to be available until mid-november.
Registration includes the ice-breaker reception, two days of conference including coffee breaks, lunches, poster session refreshments and the conference dinner.
Abstract Deadline November 15th 2023
*Bursaries Deadline 30th November
Additionally we have a number of travel bursaries to award, and have extended our deadline until the 30th of November.
The TSG supports students and Early Career Researcher attendance at conferences by providing up to £500 bursary for e.g. conference registration fees, travel, accommodation and subsistence. Up to 4 bursaries are awarded each year. This includes fees for virtual meetings!
Nominations for the Ramsay Medal and the Dave Johnston Undergraduate Mapping Prize are open. These prizes are awarded annually by the Tectonic Studies Group and will be announced at the annual meeting.
*The Ramsay Medal*
The prestigious Ramsay Medal is awarded to the Early Career Researcher who has been judged to have produced the best publication arising directly from their postgraduate research project. The paper must be in the field of tectonics and structural geology and been published in the 12-month period before the closing date. It must also have been written primarily by the nominee, based on their own research. The paper would preferably have also been presented at a previous TSG-sponsored conference or event.
This year the closing date for nominations will be November 17th 2023. You can find out more about the nomination process for the Ramsay Medal on the TSG website: http://tectonicstudiesgroup.org/ramsay-medal/
*The Dave Johnston Mapping Prize*
The Dave Johnston Undergraduate Mapping Prize is awarded for the best undergraduate mapping project arising from fieldwork dissertations completed in the past two years. Nominations are open all year round. Due to an increasing number of submissions in recent years, applications are now limited to one nomination per institution.
Full information about the Dave Johnston Undergraduate Mapping Prize and how to nominate is available on the TSG website: http://tectonicstudiesgroup.org/dave-johnston-mapping-prize/
A nomination form is available from the TSG website and must be submitted to the TSG Secretary before December 1st 2023.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts, applications and nominations.
