Dates: Wednesday May 07 2014 - Thursday May 08 2014
Location: Sheraton Centre Toronto Toronto, ON
Sponsored by: E08 Fatigue and Fracture
Deadline for Abstract Submittal: Friday November 22 2013
Papers are invited for the E08 4th Symposium on the Evaluation of Existing and New Sensor Technologies for Fatigue, Fracture and Mechanical Testing to be held May 7-8, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, the symposium will be held at the Sheraton Toronto in Toronto, ON, Canada, in conjunction with the May standards development meetings of Committee.
New sensor technologies are used in fatigue, fracture and mechanical testing to determine a variety of properties that are subject to ASTM standards. As these standards are applied to practical applications, issues with existing and new sensors specified in the standards need to be resolved.
The 4th Symposium on the Evaluation of Existing and New Sensor Technologies is intended to provide a forum to disseminate state-of-the-art advances in sensor technology as well as identify the limitations of existing sensor technology as it applies to fatigue, fracture and mechanical testing.
This Symposium is an opportunity to learn about both new and issues with existing sensor technology as applicable to ASTM fatigue, fracture or mechanical testing standards. Papers are solicited in the following areas:
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 September 30, 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 Co-Chairmen Jidong Kang, David Jablonski and David Dudzinski 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 30, 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.
