2015 Airfield and Highway Pavements Conference

 Call for Papers I Important Dates

The Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is pleased to announce the 2015 Airfield and Highway Pavements Conference with the theme “Innovative and Cost-Effective Pavements for a Sustainable Future”.
This conference will bring together researchers, designers, project/construction managers, and contractors from around the world to discuss the current and future challenges for airfield and highway pavement sustainability, design, rehabilitation, advanced modeling, performance, evaluation and monitoring, life-cycle assessment, and emerging technologies.

The conference program includes the following:

  • An extensive technical program developed by a scientific committee with over 90 members. It includes four concurrent paper/presentation tracks, technical tours and workshops. There will be many opportunities to earn up to 14.5 professional development hours (PDHs) for registered professionals in meeting continuing education requirements to maintain licensure.
  • A plenary session, including a presentation by a leader in the field of pavement and transportation engineering.
  • Exhibits of companies driving innovation, sustainability and quality in pavement engineering, construction and maintenance.

Please join us as an attendee, presenter, exhibitor, and sponsor or cooperating organization. We look forward to continue the tradition of another successful conference.

Co-Chairs:

John Harvey, Ph.D., P.E., M. ASCE (University of California, Davis)
Katie Chou, Ph.D., P.E., M. ASCE (Hatch Mott MacDonald)
