The Sheraton Waikiki is fully accessible to the physically challenged with volume control pay phones, TDD, assistive listening devices, and automatic doors. If you require special assistance at the conference, please submit a written description of your requirements with your registration form or email firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE February 15 , 2010. While ASCE will make every effort to meet the needs of the physically challenged, accommodations cannot be guaranteed without prior notification.
Early-bird and Advance registrants will receive their name badges and any tickets ordered at the ASCE Registration Desk during registration hours. Early-bird and Advance registrants should present the official ASCE registration receipt to on-site registration staff to obtain conference materials. If you submit a registration form via fax or postal mail one week prior to or after the registration cutoff date, please be sure to bring a copy of your fax or postal confirmation (as well as your email confirmation if you have received one), along with the original registration form paperwork to ensure ASCE onsite registration staff can process your registration. Due to the time constraints near and after the registration cutoff date, the appropriate paperwork may not have been forwarded to the onsite staff before their departure.
The dress code for the conference is business casual (i.e. slacks, casual dresses) to business attire (i.e. neckties, business suits). Meeting room temperatures will vary, so wear layered clothing to ensure your personal comfort. We also recommend attendees wear comfortable shoes.

Your name badge is your admission to the educational sessions. Please wear your badge at all times while in the Sheraton Waikiki. Tickets are required for the pre- and post-conference and special events.

Meeting Room Overcrowding
ASCE will make every effort to schedule popular events in rooms large enough to accommodate anticipated attendance. Since many events are extremely popular, it is wise to select alternative events as you plan your conference schedule. ASCE and the Sheraton Waikiki are REQUIRED to follow local fire regulations and may ask participants in rooms filled to capacity to choose another event.
No Smoking Policy
ASCE supports a "No Smoking" policy. Smoking is prohibited in the Sheraton Waikiki, and all venues hosting ASCE events.
An electronic evaluation will be sent out immediately after the Conference to all attendees.
Professional Development Hours (PDHs)
You may earn PDHs, which are nationally recognized units of record, by attending conference concurrent sessions and short courses. Please note that there are differences from state to state in continuing education requirements for professional engineering licensure. Each state licensing board has the final authority to approve course, credits, PDHs, and other methods of earning credits in that state. ASCE strongly recommends that individuals regularly check with their state licensing boards for specific continuing education requirements in their jurisdictions that affect professional engineering licensure and the ability to renew licensure.
Earn up to 18 Professional Development Hours.
