W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 15 May 2009-Papers are invited for a Symposium on Testing and Use of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants, to be held Dec. 6, 2010, at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, Fla. Sponsored by ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, the symposium will be held in conjunction with the December 5-9 standards development meetings of the committee.

The general objective of the symposium is to hold a technical forum for discussions related to current trends for testing and use of environmentally acceptable lubricants. It also provides details on current research efforts to advance the use of bio-based and other environmentally acceptable lubricants, and to develop new and improved environment test methods.

Papers are invited on the following topics: fundamentals of bio-based lubricants; industrial trends; applications; test method developments; environmental policies for world; environment testing problems; novel testing alternatives; and additive technology for bio-based/biodegradable lubricants.

To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit the online abstract submittal form at www.astm.org/d02symp1210.htm, and attach a 250-300 word preliminary abstract by Dec. 4, 2009. 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-chairs will notify you by March 6, 2010, of your paper's acceptability for presentation. 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 a booklet at the symposium.

Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Journal of ASTM International (JAI). JAI is an online, peer-reviewed journal for the international scientific and engineering community (www.astm.org/JAI). You may review the Web-based submission and peer-review site at http://jai.peerx-press.org. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for JAI are due online by Dec. 6, 2010. Once the final selection of abstracts is approved, ASTM will send authors' instructions via e-mail. The author will receive a copy of his/her paper in a PDF.

Additional information about the symposium is available from symposium chair In-Sik Rhee, U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command, Warren, Mich. (phone: 586-574-4218; insik.rhee@us.army.mil).
