CSEE GSA ~ Symposium on Resilient and Sustainable Civil Structures and Infrastructures

March 31, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm


I am glad to announce the short symposium on “Resilient and Sustainable Civil Structures and Infrastructures” will be held on March 31st, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. This symposium allows graduate students to present their related research (in a poster format) to their peers and CSEE departmental faculty and other department members who wish to attend. The poster competition will occur between 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM followed by the keynote talk given by Dr. Yongguang Huang, an invited speaker from Northwestern University, between 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

The posters will be judged by a panel of CSEE faculty from all of the disciplines and our guest judge Professor Yongguang Huang. The criteria for selecting the winning posters will be: (i) the originality of the research, (ii) the impact on the field and (iii) organization, quality, and clarity of presentation.

The basic requirements for participating are:

    • An abstract (up to 250-300 words) should be submitted through the sign-up sheet.  Abstracts are due on Monday, March 20th, 2017 by 11:59 pm (you will be notified about the status of your abstract by March 23rd).
    • The poster recommended size is limited to 40” x 32”.
    • Posters should have a heading that includes the poster title, author(s) and engineering department.

The competition will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner with $250, $150 and $50 prizes, respectively.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
