Call for Papers
Abstract Deadline: November 30, 2000
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers announces the 36th Intersociety Energy Conversion Engineering Conference (IECEC). The IECEC provides a forum to present and discuss engineering aspects of energy conversion, advanced energy and power systems and devices, and energy policy implications for research, development and utilization of technologies. Papers on all engineering aspects and disciplines of terrestrial and aerospace power, as well as advanced energy systems that fall into the topical areas, are welcome.

The IECEC series is sponsored jointly by six participating societies. In addition to ASME, the sponsors are the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AlChE), the American Nuclear Society (ANS), and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International.

An electronic version of abstracts should be submitted for review by November 30, 2000 to: Dr. Sriram Somasundaram, technical program chair or to Marisa Scalice at ASME (ScaliceM@asme.org). Or fill out the Abstract Submission Form. Abstracts should be approximately 500 words in length (but not longer than 1,000 words) presenting facts that are new and significant and should indicate the results achieved. Submissions dealing with any topic within the scope of the IECEC topical areas will be considered. Include the following items on the first page of the abstract: (1) the name, address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address of the author to whom correspondence should be addressed and (2) the topical area(s) you believe to be the most appropriate for your paper. Authors will be notified of acceptance and will receive instructions for manuscript preparation in February 2001. Completed camera-ready manuscripts will be due to ASME by April 30, 2001. Only accepted papers published in the 2001 IECEC proceedings will be presented at the conference.
