About the Event
The Symposium on Sustainability and Resilience of Plastic Piping Systems will be held April 8, 2024. The symposium is organized by ASTM Committee F17 on Plastic Piping Systems, and will be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committee. The language of the symposium will be English.
Objective and Scope
This symposium will be a forum for the discussion of sustainability and resilience as they relate to the plastic piping products industry.
Topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to:
- Recycling Materials
- Test Methods
- Case Studies
- New Technology
To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 250 to 300-word preliminary abstract using the online Abstract Submission Portal no later than January 19, 2024. To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database, please email email@example.com and let us know that you have submitted an abstract.
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. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of the paper's suitability for this symposium. On the Symposium Chairs’ behalf, ASTM will notify you via email by March 1, 2024 of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the author will be requested to submit a final abstract one month before the symposium takes place. The final abstracts will be distributed in a program booklet at the symposium.
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 September 13, 2024 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 a few months before the symposium takes place.
Registration opens approximately 10 weeks before the start of the symposium.
