W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-Papers are invited for a symposium on Global Testing of Extended Service Engine Coolants and Related Fluids, to be held May 23, 2013, at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, Ind. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee D15 on Engine Coolants and Related Fluids, the symposium will be held in conjunction with the May standards development meetings of the committee.

The objectives for the symposium, which the invited papers should address, are:
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of engine coolant test methods used globally to predict the service capabilities of extended life coolant technologies;
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of developments in aqueous and anhydrous engine coolant fluid technologies;
  • Clarify areas for focus in the development of new engine coolant test methods, especially new methods relevant to extended service technologies;
  • Provide a forum for discussion of the application of engine coolant test methods to evaluate and predict the performance of Industrial heat exchange fluids; and
  • Provide a forum to review needs for updates and modifications to ISO 22241 Specifications for Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

    To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit a 250-300 word preliminary abstract by June 29, 2012. 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 July 16, 2012, of your paper's acceptability for presentation 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. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online no later than May 16, 2013, at the ASTM Editorial Office.
