CFIRE Student Paper Awarded Second Place at AISIM

Javier Vidal Carreras, a project assistant with the Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education (CFIRE) and the University of Wisconsin–Madison took the second place award for his paper at the 13th Annual Inter-University Symposium on Infrastructure Management (AISIM). Co-authored by Professor Teresa Adams, the paper, “Analysis of WisDOT´s Maintenance Quality Assurance Program,” earned Carreras a crystal award during the awards ceremony on June 23.

The Annual Inter-University Symposium on Infrastructure Management (AISIM) was created in 2005 as a way to keep the future stewards of infrastructure updated on ongoing issues and research. AISIM is a full-day symposium featuring information exchange and networking opportunities primarily for graduate students, but often includes researchers and practitioners including infrastructure agencies, consultants, development banks, and other stakeholders. Graduate students from world-renowned institutions, who represent the next generation of leaders in infrastructure management, attend AISIM each year to exchange research ideas and information.

The 13th AISIM was held at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, in June 2017. With the exception of the keynote speaker, all presenters were students. The theme for this year’s symposium was: “State of Infrastructure Management: Challenges, Sustainability & Innovation.”
Student’s research papers addressed such areas as: Best Practices in Asset Management, Infrastructure Investment, Smart Cities, and Preparing Infrastructure for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.
