What is the Rock Bowl Challenge 2023?
It is an event designed for young engineers & next generation leaders in the field of rock mechanics, in which teams of three persons or less compete in an international Q&A competition. A maximum of 16 teams will qualify to participate in the main tournament which is going to form an integral part of the 15th International ISRM Congress 2023 taking place from October, 9-14th 2023 in Salzburg/Austria.
Who can participate?
Team members cannot be more than 35 years old (criterion: born 1988 and younger).
How to participate & qualify?
The registration form will be available online in the Rock Bowl Challenge 2023 section of the www.isrm2023.com webpage at the time of the registration opening (see block “Important dates”). The qualification round will be organized as online Q&A quiz, embedded in a virtual meeting where each team will have to answer 15 multiple choice questions using a joint device (smartphone or laptop). For this purpose, we will use the Audience Response System “Slido” which allows for an objective selection process based on the correctness and speed of response with respect to the issued answers. The 15 best ranked teams are guaranteed a ticket for the final round, and join the South African winning team from the previous Rock Bowl Challenge 2019.
After the registration period, the organizing committee of the Rock Bowl Challenge 2023 will contact participating teams by e-mail.
There is no cost to participate in the Rock Bowl Challenge 2023 qualification round.
The final round of the Rock Bowl Challenge 2023 has an exclusive sponsorship provided by Geobrugg. Qualified teams will be funded with the registration on the 15th International ISRM Congress 2023, accommodation during the congress, and food vouchers. The participants are responsible for costs associated with travel to and from the venue.
