ICE Awards for Papers

Each year, ICE Publishing acknowledges the best work published in our journals at the ICE Awards ceremony, held at One Great George Street in London.

We award authors from both industry and academia who have produced work judged by their peers to be of exceptional quality and benefit to the civil engineering community.

Each paper is free to view on ICE Virtual Library as part of our commitment to furthering knowledge and best practice in civil engineering.
