Kenneth K. Humphreys Young Student/Practitioner Paper Award

The Kenneth K. Humphreys Young Student/Practitioner Paper Award was established in 2006 in recognition of Dr. Humphreys’ service as ICEC Secretary-Treasurer from 1976 until 2006. The award is open to students or young practitioners under 36 years of age and involves the submission of papers through ICEC member associations. The award program is held every 2 years in conjunction with the biennial ICEC World Congresses and the awards are presented at these Congresses. The first awards were made at the 2008 ICEC World Congress in Toronto, Canada and more recently at the 2010 ICEC World Congress in Singapore. The paper awards are available  in each of the three professional categories which make up the membership of the International Cost Engineering Council, ie, Cost Engineering, Quantity Surveying and Project Management. Therefore up to 3 awards are available (one for each of these categories).

ICEC member associations should email papers directly to the ICEC secretariat at: secretariat@icoste.org. The following dates/deadlines apply for the 2018 award program. Please note that these dates override the dates shown in the Award Rules.

1 January 2018 – Opening date for submission of entries to each member association
1 August 2018 – Closing date for submission of entries to each member association
1 September 2018 – Closing date for member associations to submit their selected paper/s to the ICEC Secretariat

The winning papers are included in the electronic ICEC International Cost Management Journal (ICMJ). Details of the award rules and previous award winners can be found in separate posts below.

The 2018 paper competition will open on 1 January 2018. Papers must be submitted to the relevant ICEC member association for review in the first instance. ICEC member associations may alternatively select papers they consider worthy of nomination for the award. The ICEC member association will then determine whether the paper/s submitted are suitable for submission for the award. The paper/s must then be submitted to the ICEC Secretariat by the ICEC member association. Please note that individuals cannot submit papers directly to the ICEC Secretariat – all papers must be submitted to the relevant member association in the first instance. Please note that the papers can either be new papers or papers that have been previously published in industry/academic journals or other publications. For previously published papers the paper must have been published after October 2016 (i.e. since the last ICEC World Congress in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in October 2016) and written permission must be obtained from the publisher. The winning papers will be included in the ICEC International Cost Management Journal (ICMJ) on the ICEC website.

We look forward to your nominations in 2018.
