Each paper must successfully exhibit creativity, originality and rigor and included new information, new interpretations, innovations, methods, and applications. Each must make a contribution to the field through its scientific or technical significance and be useful to the practicing professional and the interests of civil engineering. As a research paper, each also had to be highly readable, presented with effective organization, be clear, concise, comprehensible, and use jargon-free language in its presentation of its concepts and facts.
