The former president of ASCE, Dr. Robert Stevens, and the conference chairman, Prof. Wanming Zhai presented the certificates and gifts to the best paper winners.
Since the IAVSD Symposium is held every odd-numbered year, the 2nd ICRT is preliminarily scheduled to be held at 2020, then the ICRT will be considered to hold every 2 years, in order to avoid time conflict with the IAVSD Symposium.
