About the Event
The 18th Hydrogen Embrittlement Workshop will be held November 9, 2023. The workshop is organized by ASTM Committee F07 on Aerospace and Aircraft, and will be held at the Washington Hilton, Washington, District of Columbia, United States in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committee. The language of the workshop will be English.
Objective and Scope
At its inception, the ASTM Hydrogen Embrittlement workshop has been the only technical forum devoted to hydrogen embrittlement testing technology in the aerospace industry. The scope has steadily grown over the years and today includes aspects of research and technology across many industrial sectors, including the fastener industry, automotive industry, and the energy sector. The workshop is an ideal setting for exchanging ideas with your technical colleagues from around the world in the global hydrogen embrittlement research and testing communities.
Abstracts for presentation are invited in all areas of hydrogen embrittlement, pure and applied research, technology including test methods, failure mechanisms, material susceptibility, coating interaction, predictive modelling, failure prevention, and other related topics. No written paper is required, and international participation is highly encouraged. Those interested in presenting at the workshop should submit a 250-300-word abstract to the event chairs no later than October 15, 2023.
Symposium authors are required to submit their papers for ASTM publication in Selected Technical Papers (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. STP papers should be full-length technical papers of approximately 10,000 words, significantly contribute to the technical literature, and must include a review of past work in the relevant area and present information of current interest or probe new fields. After the final selection of abstracts has been approved, the ASTM Editorial Office will send authors’ instructions via email, but also can be found by clicking here.
Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online no later than DATE at the ASTM Editorial Office. The corresponding author (the author who is the main contact with ASTM Headquarters) will receive a copy of his/her paper in portable document format (PDF). All published authors will have the opportunity to purchase reprints of their papers at a nominal cost. Only those papers submitted by the manuscript due date will be included in the STP. Please note that all submitted papers are subject to peer review by two independent reviewers.
The STP will be submitted to the Library of Congress with an ISBN number and will be reviewed for inclusion in the Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and Google Scholar.
A technical program (presentation times, paper titles, and presenters’ names) will be posted on the ASTM website in early October.
Registration opens approximately 10 weeks before the start of the workshop.
