Associate of State Dame Safety Officials – Student Paper Competition

ASDSO invites students to enter the Student Paper Competition, open to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees at U.S. universities or colleges. We invite students to submit papers on dam and levee safety!

Topics may include traditional areas of design engineering, structural and geotechnical analysis, hydrology, hydraulics, construction, risk management and hazard mitigation, emergency action planning, dam security, and policy. In addition, case studies, emerging and innovative technologies, and senior capstone projects are encouraged.

Each winning paper will receive $500 and a travel stipend to present at Dam Safety 2018 in Seattle, WA, in September 2018. Winning papers will also be published in the annual conference proceedings. Other selected entries will be invited to participate in the Dam Safety 2018 Poster & Lightning Talk Forum. Conference registration fees will be waived for all participating students enrolled in colleges or universities in the U.S. who present a valid student ID (that’s a $1000 value!). Both US citizens and non-US citizens are eligible.

All student entries must include a 350-word (maximum) abstract, and should be submitted online. The student paper competition also requires an executive summary of at least 1,200 words. (Please note: the full paper is not due at the deadline, only the abstract and executive summary, so please send in your ideas!). Announcements of selected papers and invited posters will be made in early April. Please contact Brittany Lewis at (855) 228-9732 or blewis@damsafety.org with any questions you may have.

The deadline to submit executive summaries and abstracts is February 5.
