Call for Papers
Abstract Submission is now closed in preparation for the 46th Turbomachinery& 33rd Pump Symposia (TPS 2017). We invite you to participate in the TPS 2018 program! Abstract submissions for TPS 2018 will open in July.
Papers must be free of commercialism. References to commercial products, trade names, and manufacturing companies must be avoided. Be mindful of who your audience is: the end user. Previously published works will not be accepted. Submissions should be field tested and share practical – not theoretical – information.
A Lecture is a presentation of a technical paper detailing cutting-edge, emerging turbomachinery or reciprocating compressor technology. The described technology should have been successfully field tested at least once and include field experience. A lecture presentation is 45 minutes long, including time for Q&A.
A Tutorial is a mini short course/workshop. It is a teaching process. Presenters are encouraged to bring in equipment for hands-on instruction. Tutorials consist of 75-80 minutes of presentation and 10-15 minutes of questions and discussion.
A Short Course is a full-day training session presented concurrently with other short courses on the first day of the Symposia. Short Courses run from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm with a 75-minute luncheon and two 30-minute breaks. Please submit a detailed abstract, including a course philosophy and goal, an outline, and a written summary of who the audience is and what they will learn.
A Case Study is a short informational PowerPoint presentation describing the successful implementation of established turbomachinery or pump technology to solve a real-world problem. Case studies concisely relate a Problem, its Solutions, and the Lessons Learned. Each invited case study is limited to 10 minutes for Turbo and 20 minutes for Pump to relate their experiences with an additional five minutes for questions. Presentations consist of an abstract of 10-20 slides. Stories relating the failure of others, such as manufacturers or suppliers, will not be permitted.
