AISC has renamed its annual spring and fall seminar series the Louis F. Geschwindner Seminar Series in honor of the well-respected educator and lecturer. Geschwinder recently retired after serving for nearly 40 years as a faculty member in the Architectural Engineering Department at the Pennsylvania State University. He also served the last nine years as AISC’s vice president of engineering and research. Many of his more than 3,000 students are now leaders in the structural engineering and academic communities. In addition, as a lecturer for AISC, Geschwindner over the years has helped continue the education of more than 15,000 practicing professionals.
The first AISC Louis F. Geschwindner Seminar will be given at this year’s NASCC: The Steel Conference (the session is listed as SC7 in the Advance Program at www.aisc.org/nascc) and focuses on the 2010 AISC Specification and 14th Edition Steel Construction Manual, which will be available later this year. The seminar will be offered starting in this year’s fall Louis F. Geschwindner Seminar Series.
