Submitting a Paper
The general procedure for submitting a paper to the conference are as follows:
Submit paper for review
Submit five (5) hard copies and a soft copy in electronic form of each paper to the individual who is organizing a particular symposium of the respective Technical Conference.
The maximum length of each paper is limited to 10 two-column pages. The title page must include the name, address, telephone number, and email address of the contact author, and the affiliation of all the authors. All papers submitted will be reviewed for presentation and publication in CD-ROM proceedings.
The symposium organizer will acknowledge receipt of the paper by informing the author directly.
The symposium organizer will manage the review process, correspond with the author, and inform the author of the paper’s review/acceptance status.
Submit final paper to ASME
If the paper is accepted, the symposium organizer will send the author an acceptance letter, the paper number, the reviews, a foreign visitor invitation (if necessary), a paper designation form, and further instructions. The ASME copyright form, the templates for formatting the paper, and other information are available at the ASME Author Kit.
After receiving the acceptance letter, the author should review the ASME author’s kit and download the ASME copyright form. After revising the paper according to the reviewers’ suggestions and formatting the paper as specified, submit the final paper to ASME and return the completed paper designation form and the completed copyright form. Note that papers will not be included or published without these two forms.
The symposium organizer will send the author the session list that denotes the session where the paper will appear. The ASME program coordinator will send to the author an advance program, which will show the session schedule and when the session will occur.

Hilton’s description of the conference hotel:
“The Hilton Pittsburgh & Towers has been the city's largest and most elegant hotel since opening in December 1959. Proudly, we represent the final piece of the development project known as "Renaissance I" which, through aggressive water-front development, transformed Pittsurgh from the industrial,"workshop to the world", to a highly commercial city specializing in high-tech and banking firms. Land was cleared and bridges were re-built to create Point State Park at the confluence of the Monogahela, Allegheny, and Ohio Rivers.”
