The BCS Anniversary Symposium will follow the successful format of events developed over the past fifty years including formal presentations, hands on workshops and lively debates.
To find out more about this and other events in the 50th Anniversary Calendar follow the society on:
BGS will be at stand 47 showing 3D geology and discussing BGS services and products for engineering geologists, drillers and GSHP installation companies.
Here are some more features of Geotechnica 2013:
The ‘Ice in the Greenhouse’ exhibit was selected as one of the top 20 current UK science projects, from nearly 100 applicants.
The Exhibition will be held at the Royal Society between 1-7 of July, and BGS staff will be presenting alongside scientists demonstrating research into stem cells, teleportation, the Higgs boson and Big Bang theory.
We are planning a packed programme of talks, tours and demonstrations illustrating the wide scope and applications of our research activities, as well as a very special guest appearance.
There will be something for rock lovers of all age - from newbies to experienced earth scientists.
Entry is free, but you must fill in the online booking form

The latest geophysical equipment will be on show and the exhibition will include a master class on GPS surveying for the geophysicist conducted by personnel from Leica. There will also be a “hunt the UXO” competition using your choice of geophysical methods with an iPad mini awarded to the winner.
This conference provides the opportunity for discussion of a wide range of geoarchaeological projects focused upon the Trent catchment, including research on early hunter-gatherer communities, later prehistoric and Roman landscape change, cultural resource management and developments in site prospection techniques.
Further information about the conference, including a programme and booking form can be obtained from www.tparchaeology.co.uk/tvg.
Booking forms must be received by Friday 3rd May.
Are you a developer or technologist interested in using smartphones and tablets to deliver information?
If you are, then come along to this free one day event at the British Geological Survey.

The BGS will celebrate National Science & Engineering Week on Saturday 23 March 2013 in our new conference venue at Keyworth.
There will be displays, demonstrations and talks with lots to see and plenty of hands-on activities and tours for children and adults.
A number of science organisations will be helping us out, along with Rockwatch, the national club for young geologists.
