Probabilistic Methods Committee (PMC)
Prof. Seymour MJ Spence, University of Michigan
The Probabilistic Methods Committee of ASCE/EMI held its 11th Annual Student Paper Competition in Probabilistic Methods on May 28th, 2020, virtually, and two winners were selected from a pool of twenty-two submissions.
- To increase the involvement of younger professionals in the EMI/PMC conferences, particularly in the area of probabilistic methods.
- To engage student members with the PMC to promote further growth as engineers, develop working relationships with PMC members, and be ready to take on future responsibilities within the technical community.
- To improve their technical writing skill, as well as to promote high-quality submissions to the flagship journal of EMI, the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.
Congratulations to the Winners!
