TC304 Student Contest on Data Analytics

TC304 regularly holds TC304 Student Contest on Data Analytics in conferences. The purpose of this event is to encourage students to learn statistical and probabilistic methods (e.g., machine learning) and implement them in geotechnical data. First, a contest question is given to all participants, and participants are asked to address the contest question and present their works in the conferences. Depending on how this contest question is addressed, one TC304 Student Contest Award and several encouragement awards will be given.

      • While asking all Authors of accepted papers to register for the conference we recommend that participants postpone making travel and accommodation bookings unless reimbursement is guaranteed. You will have time to do so in May. Registration is indeed needed to allow for the indexed conference proceedings to be prepared on time.

  • Directory of national reliability-based design (RBD) groups

 

To strengthen and coordinate activities between TC304 and national groups, particularly those engaging in developing reliability-based design codes, we propose to maintain a directory at our TC304 website as a start.  We welcome participation from anyone who are interested in RBD codes for geotechnical engineering – formal membership in national code committees is not necessary. 

 

The sample entries would be posted in our TC304 website.  Do submit other national entries to Jianye.
