Symposium Volumes

Symposium Publications

ACI Technical committees periodically publish papers from convention sessions or a symposium in a Symposium Publication (SP). ACI SPs are published in PDF.

An SP may include papers from convention sessions, papers submitted but not presented, and other papers dealing with the same subject matter received by the Institute and approved by the sponsoring committee for inclusion in the SP. Papers must be original unless otherwise approved by TAC, be of high quality, and report new or unpublished work that adds to the existing knowledge base. Special Publications are documents published by staff, an individual author, or a technical committee (not a technical document). Going forward, those publications will be called Manuals (MNL).
