Deadline(s): Normally 1 February and 30 September, but exceptions can be discussed with the BSG Admin Officer.
The BSG provides sponsorship for conferences/conference sessions/event organisers that meet the stated Missions of the BSG: To support scientific excellence in geomorphology through:
- Fostering excellence and increased investment and support for geomorphology
- Developing applied geomorphological research, having a major impact on environmental policy and practice and providing a public benefit
- Disseminating new geomorphological research and policy agendas
- Developing a new generation of geomorphologists equipped to address interdisciplinary challenges.
Typically sponsorship has been used to support BSG keynote speakers, break-out discussion groups or workshops, as well as social/publicity events.
The BSG requires that: - The BSG is fully acknowledged at the event and in all publicity materials, including display of the BSG logo. BSG Sponsored speakers use a BSG and Wiley Powerpoint slide at the beginning of their presentation. This is a presentation title slide and available from the BSG. Organisers discuss with BSG event publicity, so that we can help with advertising BSG sponsored events. The BSG encourages conference/session organisers to consider Earth Surface Processes and Landforms as an outlet for eventual publications. The BSG requires a report from the conference (typically written by an attending postgraduate) to review the event for the BSG website and newsletter. Those awarded funding must claim their awards within 6 months of notification, otherwise the BSG reserve the right to withdraw the award.
