Papers from all authors whose abstracts are accepted will be published in the Conference proceedings. All papers must adhere to the publication formats of ASCE. Papers should be a minimum of five (5) pages and a maximum of 10 pages. The papers will be reviewed by the editorial team of the Technical Committee. Authors are limited to a total of three papers (3).
Authors uploading very large files that contain high-resolution photos and graphics may encounter difficulty or delays with the uploading process. If you encounter delays with uploading your paper, please contact Patrick Driscoll at MIRA: email@example.com.
SPECIAL NOTE: In some cases, abstract-only presentations will be considered if approved by the Conference Chair or Symposium Chairs. Abstract-only papers will not be published in the Conference proceedings.
Authors whose abstracts are selected must submit a final paper along with a paper deposit fee of $150.00 (USD) by November 15, 2011. Submitting an abstract for the Conference constitutes agreement that, if their paper is accepted, the author will pay the paper deposit fee, register for the Conference at the appropriate fee(s), attend the Conference, and make their presentations in person.
Paper deposit fees are paid at the time of final paper upload. The paper deposit fee will be credited towards the Conference registration for the author submitting the final paper. Authors uploading more than one paper will pay only one deposit fee. All paper deposit fees are non-refundable and non-transferable, and payment of the paper deposit fee does not guarantee the author a copy of the proceedings. Authors must attend the Conference to receive the proceedings.
If an author is unable to pay a paper deposit fee, he or she must register for the Conference and pay the full registration fee at the time of paper upload. All authors must register for the conference by 12:00 Midnight (EST) on January 10, 2012. Should an individual fail to register by that date, the author’s paper will be removed from the Conference program and proceedings, and the $150 deposit will not be refunded.
No exceptions will be made.
Papers presented at the Conference will appear in Conference proceedings published by ASCE. Papers will also be available in ASCE’s Online Library. The proceedings will be available onsite at the Conference.
Several best paper awards will be selected by the Conference Technical Committee and the Aerospace Division’s technical committees.
