BSG Support for Conference or Session Sponsorship

Deadline(s): Normally 1 February and 30 September, but exceptions can be discussed with the BSG Admin Officer.

The BSG provides up to £500 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 1 month of notification, otherwise the BSG reserve the right to withdraw the award.
