The ISSMGE Technical Committee TC102 – Ground Property Characterization from In-Situ Tests in cooperation with the University of L'Aquila, Italy has instituted the Silvano Marchetti Award (SMA) in memory of Professor Silvano Marchetti (1943-2016). The award is funded entirely by Studio Prof. Marchetti, Italy.

The SMA aims to support scientific publications on in-situ testing and its application to geotechnical engineering design, focusing especially on DMT and/or SDMT. Authors can apply for the award on this application form after they have submitted their abstracts through the conference review platform.

The award will cover a registration fee for the ISC'6 conference and accommodation for the duration of the conference for the author (or one of the authors) of the recipient paper.
