Call for Papers
We are no longer accepting abstracts for TPS 2018 – please check back for the Call for Papers for TPS 2019 (released late June/early July of each year) and the full program for TPS 2018 (released late May of each year).
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 innovative turbomachinery or reciprocating compressor technology or methodology. The work should clearly state the advantage/impact on operational equipment for the practicing engineer. A lecture presentation is 45 minutes long consisting of 30 to 40 minutes of presentation reserving at least 5 minutes for questions and discussion. The lecture paper will be published as a part of the proceedings. End-user participation in the lecture is encouraged.
A Tutorial is a mini short course/workshop presenting a specific technical topic. It is a teaching process directed at the practicing engineer. Presenters are encouraged to bring in equipment for hands-on instruction. Tutorials are allocated 90 minutes and consist of 70 to 80 minutes of presentation reserving at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Authors are required to create a tutorial paper and presentation. The tutorial paper will be published as a part of the proceedings.
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. The short course presentation will be distributed as a pdf file and hard copy to the registrants of the short course only.
A Case Study is a short informational presentation describing the successful implementation of established technology or methodology to solve a real-world problem. Case studies concisely relate a Problem, its Solutions, and the Lessons Learned. Each invited case study is allocated 20 minutes and consists of up to 15 minutes for the presentation reserving at least 5 minutes for questions and discussion. End-user participation in the case study is strongly encouraged. The case study will be published as a part of the proceedings in PDF format.
