Announcement to all attendee and presenting authors

Please be advised that the STLE Board of Directors has reluctantly cancelled the 2020 STLE Annual Meeting and Exhibition.  This is due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 virus and the unknowns that it carries with it both in the US and internationally as we go forward.  If you booked a room in our hotel block at the Hyatt, the Hyatt will cancel your reservation and send you a confirmation. If you booked outside the block, you will need to cancel it yourself.  The STLE will also offer options for your meeting registration. Please be patient as we work through these processes.

Authors, and in particular those from academia, are encouraged to submit their abstract to the 2020 STLE Tribology Frontiers Conference scheduled for November 8-11, 2020 in Cleveland by the extended deadline of May 1st, using the link below, or submit abstracts again for the 2021 STLE Meeting to be held May 15-20, 2021 in New Orleans when the abstract site opens in late June.

We are looking into the possibility of transferring 2020 abstracts to the 2021 Abstract Submission Site in draft form for authors to go in, provide the final needed information and then submit in final form. If this is possible, we will send you another email and ask you to  reply to indicate you would like your abstracts moved to 2021 and we will let you know later this summer if it was successful.  Thank you.
