Dates: Tuesday May 06 2014 - Thursday May 08 2014
Location: Sheraton Centre Toronto Toronto, ON
Sponsored by: A01 Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys
Deadline for Abstract Submittal: Tuesday October 29 2013
Papers are invited for the ASTM 10th International Symposium on Advances in Steel Technologies for Rolling Bearings to be held May 6-7, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys, the symposium will be held at the Sheraton Toronto in Toronto, Canada, in conjunction with the May 2014 standards development meetings of Committee.
The objective of the symposium is to bring together rolling bearing steel practitioners to present the latest developments in rolling bearing steels and testing. Papers from steelmakers, semi-finished and finished bearing steel component producers, rolling bearing producers and development institutes will be encouraged.
Papers are invited on but not limited to the following topics:
Who Should Attend
The information in the symposium papers will be novel enough to benefit experienced/specialist bearing steel technologists and wide–ranging enough to benefit newcomers. The steel and bearing producers and users will have the opportunity to learn about new developments in testing and also about added value opportunities from various steelmakers, rolling bearing producers, and research and development service providers.
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 May 31, 2013. 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 email@example.com 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 John Beswick will notify you via postal mail by July 8, 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 April 29, 2014 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.
ASTM publishes individual paper(s) in the online STP as they are finalized ASTM also publishes a printed book as a Selected Technical Papers (STP). (A minimum of ten papers is required for a printed STP.) Only those papers submitted by the manuscript due date will be included in the STP.
