Dr. Ioannis Brilakis, assistant professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, was recently honored at the 2010 Construction Research Congress meeting in October for receiving the 2009 American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE) Associate Editor Award. This is a considerable honor as only one such award is given annually for all ASCE journal publications.
Dr. Brilakis serves on two editorial boards within ASCE and was nominated by the editors in chief of both the
Journal of Construction Engineering and Management and the Journal of Computing in Civil Engineering (JCCE). Among his notable achievements, Dr. Brilakis initiated the Annual Best Paper Award in the Journal of Construction Engineering and Management and has served as the chair of the journal's awards committee for the last three years. He is also very active in the JCCE awards committee. He serves as a co-specialty editor in the highly subscribed and demanding information technology area. In addition
to carrying the expected manuscript load for a JCCE Editorial Board member, Brilakis co-led the production of a highly successful series of special sections on the topic of IT Support for Advanced Infrastructure Systems (Vol. 23, Nos. l-3, with a total of 12 papers in the three sections).
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Brilakis for this notable achievement.
