D02 Petroleum Products and Lubricants
Title: Symposium on Environmentally Considerate Lubricants
Papers are invited for a Symposium on Environmentally Considerate Lubricants to be held December 9, 2013. Sponsored by ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, the symposium will be held at the Marriott Tampa in Tampa, Florida, in conjunction with the December standards development meetings of Committee.
Papers are invited on any of the following topics:
The language of the symposium will be English.
To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit online the Abstract Submittal Form and attach a 250-300 word preliminary abstract no later than December 10, 2012. Scroll to the top of the page to "Go to Abstract Submittal Form". To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database system, please email firstname.lastname@example.org stating that your abstract was submitted.
The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of the paper's suitability for this symposium. Symposium Chairman In-Sik Rhee will notify you via postal mail by February 11, 2013 of your paper's acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the presenter/author will be requested to submit a final camera-ready abstract several months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in an abstract booklet at the symposium.
Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Selected Technical Paper (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. After the final selection of abstracts has been approved, the ASTM Editorial Office will send authors' instructions via email only. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online no later than November 25, 2013 at the ASTM Editorial Office. The corresponding author (the author who is the main contact with ASTM Headquarters) will receive a copy of his/her paper in portable document format (PDF). All published authors will have the opportunity to purchase reprints of their papers at a nominal cost.
