This is a general call for papers to be presented and posters to be displayed during the Texas Section Spring Centennial Conference in Corpus Christi, Texas, March 19-23, 2013. Check the Centennial Conference website, www.TexASCE.org, for more information.
Papers and posters may be the result of a research project, a technical description of a unique project, an innovative idea that has been implemented, a new and useful technology, or an improvement of present practice. Papers may also be the result of a case study of an ethical or legal question pertaining to civil engineering.
Join other Texas Section members, friends and colleagues from around the country to discuss and learn how the Texas Section began 100 years ago with “A Look Back – Celebrating our Engineering Heritage”. We look forward to seeing you where it all began back in 1913 in Corpus Christi, Texas!
