Geodesy Section Student Awards

The Section provides an award of $500 sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources of Canada (NRCan), for the Best Student Paper in Geodesy at the CGU Annual Meeting. Students willing to participate are encouraged to submit, in addition to the regular abstract, an extended abstract (maximum three pages, single space, including figures; one additional page can be used for the list of references – see model). The extended abstract should reflect the content of the presentation. Students participating in the student paper competition should have submitted a regular abstract with content and format consistent with CGU requirements, in order to be included in the program book. Both oral and poster presentations will be considered in the geodesy student paper competition.
The student must be the main author.

Regular abstracts must be submitted to CGU by February 15th.

Deadline for submission of extended abstracts to CGU-GS: April 17th.

Extended abstracts (for the Student Paper Competition) should be submitted via e-mail to Joe Henton ( AND Robert Kingdon ( in PDF format.
