Registration is now open for the Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) Pipelines 2020 Conference. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, UESI and the conference steering committee made the decision to cancel the in-person event and pivot the conference to a virtual experience.
Set to take place Aug. 10-13, the theme of the virtual event is “Pipeline Engineering – Resiliency in Infrastructure.” The conference organizers are now collectively working together with speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and suppliers to reshape the existing content and transform the UESI Pipelines 2020 into a virtual delivery. The detailed final program will be available soon.
Registration for the full conference is $245 for ASCE/UESI members, $145 for speaker members, $75 for life members, $75 for student members, $380 for non-members and $280 for speaker non-members. The registration for government/municipal attendees is free.
Daily rates are $160 for members, $90 for speak members, $45 for life members and $45 for students, $225 for non-members and $155 for speaker non-members.
Discounted student rate is available to ASCE student members with active 2020 membership. Student membership is free. To become an ASCE Student Member, no matter what degree you are pursuing, or to renew your student membership, go to asce.org/membership/student/.
