For symposium and student paper competition only
Full paper submission is optional for presenting at a symposium. No full paper will be accepted for submissions to the general session unless you are participating in the student paper competitions. The submitted full papers will be peer reviewed, and once accepted be published as a special publication of ASCE or a special issue of an ASCE journal.

Only an eletronic version in Microsoft Word format is accepted. Please indicate in the full paper which author will make the presentation at the workshop.

Full papers are to be submitted by March 15th 2011. The papers will be reviewed and it is anticipated that they will be published as a special publication of ASCE. Paper format should follow the current style of the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Journal. Your submitted file should have all figures and tables in place so that it will print in the form that is intended to be read. Please use Times New Roman 10 pt for the text, 12 pt for the authors’ names, 9pt for the affiliation in the footer, 11 pts for the bold section headings and 14pt for the title. Maximum length is 10,000 words.

Please use the ASCE Sizing Worksheet to estimate the words and word-equivalents of your submission. To use the Sizing Guide, count the number of words (except for tables and figures) on a typical manuscript page and multiply that by the number of total pages. Add word-equivalents for figures and tables by estimating the portion of the journal page each will occupy when reduced to fit on a journal page. A page in ASCE’s journals holds approximately 1,260 words; therefore, a figure that would fill one quarter of a journal page would be 315 word-equivalents and a table that would fill one half of a journal page would be 630 word-equivalents
