Abstract Submission Instructions

2018 Tribology Frontiers Conference Presentation Submission Site: https://2018stlefrontiers.abstractcentral.com/
On behalf of the STLE Tribology Frontiers Planning committee I would like to thank all of you who already submitted an abstract for the STLE 2018 Tribology Frontiers Conference. We have had enough requests for additional time that we will extend the deadline by three weeks, to Friday, April 6, 2018. After April 6, the submission site will remain open to receive abstracts for the waitlist, as well as for invited posters and student posters.

The Tribology Frontiers Conference is focused on the role tribology plays as the interface of physics, chemistry, materials science and mechanical engineering. We invite authors to submit an abstract for consideration by the review committee as a podium or poster presentation. Authors may choose either of two abstract submission formats.

One-page extended abstracts based on the conference template will:
  1. be given primary consideration for podium presentations by the review committee
  2. be archived as a PDF by STLE, web searchable, and available for citation
  3. not require transfer of copyrights

Traditional abstracts (150-250 words) should be submitted for poster presentations and will be given secondary consideration by the review committee when submitted for podium presentations.
