Wyoming Engineering and Surveying Society 104th Annual Convention
The Wyoming Engineering and Surveying Society Annual Convention is the Society’s only membership event. It is the single annual opportunity where Society members gather for continuing education opportunities, vendor interaction and product review, professional group meetings, and social networking.
The Convention program is designed to have technical and educational components that meet the needs of the engineering and surveying profession. The Convention program provides benefits to attendees on an educational and professional level. Employers gain value by virtue of increasing their employees’ technical, managerial, and leadership skills through the Convention program.
- Target Audience
The Convention’s target audience is the engineering and surveying profession across all disciplines (civil, mechanical, electrical, structural, survey, etc.) and levels of experience, with emphasis on the professions in Wyoming.
- Convention Topics
The program topics cover seven key areas (See attached Table A). Each topic has a set of sub-topics that define presentation opportunities within these broad topic areas. Prospective presenters should select the topic area for the general subject and the specific sub-topic to describe the presentation.
- State of the Industry
- Professional Development
- Multi-disciplinary Technical
- Natural and Man-made Disasters
- History & Heritage and Significant Projects
- Strategic Issues / Public Policy
- Vendor Products and Services
- Convention Program and Sessions
- Typical sessions are 55 minutes in length and scheduled throughout the Convention on February 7 and February 8, 2024 and ordinarily occur between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Program sessions can be lengthened to over one hour upon special request and approval. The Technical Program subcommittee will assign presentation times in the best interest of the Convention once all proposals have been reviewed. Specific scheduling requests will be considered and accommodated when possible.
- Authors may submit a full or partial session idea, and the Technical Program subcommittee will work with the submitting author(s) to merge similar ideas within a category to create a session. Sessions may be either concurrent (most common), roundtable, or panel discussions.
- Submitting a proposal to the Convention constitutes an agreement that, if your proposal is accepted, the author(s) will register for the Convention (as a presenter at no cost), attend the Convention (or presenting session), and present their work in person, preferably. A select few may be able to present remotely using an online platform that will be live-streamed to Convention attendees. Please note: live streamed presentations will be limited in number.
- A select number of live in-person presentations may be streamed online for convention attendees to watch remotely. Please note: in-person presentations to be streamed will be limited in number.
- WES provides no stipend, travel, or lodging for presenters. Presenters, with the no cost conference registration, may attend sessions and social functions at no cost, but are asked to purchase individual meal tickets as required such that an accurate meal count can be established.
