**NOTE - Change of Registration Process for 2024**

Please note that CSCE has recently changed event registration platforms. Instead of registering for its events using Constant Contact, people will register for them using ASCE Collaborate. This new registration process will involve either logging into your ASCE Collaborate account or setting up & using a guest account with ASCE if you don't already have an ASCE Collaborate account. If needed, you can set up a guest account with ASCE by visiting this ASCE webpage, clicking on the Create a New Account link, and following the prompts to create an account. If you have any questions or challenges related to this registration process, please send an email to [email protected]. CSCE is happy to help you register for its events!

Call for Abstracts

The Connecticut Chapter of ASCE Structural Engineering Institute (SEI-CT) solicits presentations and invites abstract submissions for the 2024 SEI-CT Seminar to be held at MDC Operations Facility & Training Center in Hartford, CT on Thursday, October 10, 2024.

For each of the last three years events (2021-2023), SEI-CT had invited speakers on a specific topic.  For this year's event, SEI-CT requests practitioners, educators, and vendors submit practice/research projects within a wide range of structural engineering topics for a 45-min in-person presentation followed by 15-min Q&A.  Emphasis should be placed on the practical solutions and/or applicability.  The deadline for the submittal of abstracts of 250-500 words with a photo via email to both [email protected] and [email protected] has been extended to July 31st.  SEI-CT is requesting only presentations, not publishable papers for this event.  For additional information on submissions or other technical questions, please email to [email protected]. Suggested topics include:

  • What structural engineers do
  • Innovative topics like AI
  • Actual projects' challenges and how they were resolved, i.e., I-90 extension to Logan Airport under the rail lines and Fort Point Channel
  • A discussion of structures-adjacent topics: hydraulics, permitting, HVAC, etc. Essentially, what should structural engineers be considering more fully as designs are developed?
  • Issues during construction of structures...lessons learned from construction engineers and Construction Engineering & Inspection (CEI)
  • Wind, flood and earthquake loads
  • Application of building codes.
  • Sustainability in Structural Engineering

 

The CSCE of the present is the result of a merger of two organizations that occurred more than 35 years ago. The Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1884, while the Connecticut Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers was founded in 1919. In 1958, the Section had 523 members. In 1955 (the nearest comparable year for reliable numbers), the Society had 1,033 members. The two organizations met separately until they merged in 1981, by mutual vote of membership, to become the Connecticut Society of Civil Engineers Section of American Society of Civil Engineers or CSCE.
