Essentials for All Proposals
Proposal Submissions must be:
Proposals will be judged by the Annual Program Committee and based on the following criteria:
As always, the Committee seeks interesting and engaging topics and discussions based on the Conference theme. The ASCE Annual Conference provides an opportunity for discussion, interaction, and education on topics that cross the breadth of civil engineering sub-disciplines. Appropriate topics can include those related to business and the responsibilities of being members of a learned profession. However, as engineers, the audience is keenly interested in presentations and sessions with technical underpinnings and clear applicability to topical subjects such as adaptation to climate change, improving resiliency within built works, etc. Consequently, the Annual Program Committee seeks to develop a "well rounded" program of sessions that educate and reinforce topics relevant to being a learned professional along with technical discussions that appeal to the science and engineering perspectives of the participants. The Annual Conference does not attempt to compete with technical specialty conferences, but there are a range of topics that introduce new scientific approaches, intersections between technology or science with policy, or technical topics that span a breadth of disciplines where the Annual Conference can effectively contribute to the education and productivity of the ASCE membership and the civil engineering profession.
Note: Written papers are not required for proposals that are selected for presentation, and there will not be a formal proceedings published.
