W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., —Papers are invited for a symposium on Modularity and Tapers in Total Joint Replacement Devices, to be held Nov. 10, 2014, at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, La. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices, the symposium will be held in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committee.

The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for consensus development and scientific exchange on the needs for characterization and standardized testing related to modularity and tapers used in total joint replacement devices. The main focus is to address unmet standardization needs and to help establish best testing practices in the following four areas:
• Characterization of Fretting, Taper Corrosion and Associated Adverse Tissue Reactions;
• What Do Retrievals Tell Us in Total Joint Arthroplasty?;
• Contemporary and Evolving Test Methodologies; and
• Design Parameters for Taper Connections in TJA.

Abstracts and papers relevant to these topics are requested. To participate, presenters/authors must submit a 250-300 word preliminary abstract by Sept. 1, 2014. 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. The symposium co-chairmen will notify you by Sept. 8, 2014, of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium.
