Official Rules: Non-Technical Paper

Non-technical Paper for RMC

Rules from University of New Mexico:

As clarification, the non-technical paper will be based on the same topic as the Daniel
W. Mead paper. This topic is:
"Should the Engineer of Record (who has sealed a set of plans) be held responsible, to
any degree, for injury or death to builders or bystanders that occurs during the
construction of his/her design?"

The non-technical paper should be submitted to UNM one month prior to the conference
along with the Canoe papers. These papers can be submitted to ASCE-UNM via email
to See deadlines for submission date. See General Information
in this mailer for information on submission format.
* IMPORTANT REMINDER: In order to qualify for the National ASCE Daniel W. Mead
competition, a separate competition from the Rocky Mountain Regional Conference,
schools are encouraged to submit their Daniel W. Mead papers by March 1st. This
competition is separate from the Non-Technical Paper competition being conducted at
the 2015 Rocky Mountain Regional Conference in New Mexico. All information about
this can be found at:

Reference citations of the papers should conform to official ASCE Journal Submission Guidelines, which can be found on the ASCE Publications website.
