EXCHANGING IDEAS. IMPACTING THE INDUSTRY.

7-9 APRIL 2020 | SHORT COURSES: 6 APRIL | KUALA LUMPUR CONVENTION CENTRE | MALAYSIA

 

VIBRATION ANALYSIS TRACK

The Vibration Institute is planning and organizing the vibration analysis track of the Asia Turbomachinery and Pump Symposium by the Turbomachinery Laboratory of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station.

 

SUBMISSION CATEGORIES & GENERAL GUIDELINES

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 have been factory or field tested and share practical – not only theoretical – information.

 

CATEGORIES

Lecture: A Lecture is a presentation of a technical paper detailing innovative technology or methodology in vibration analysis. 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.

Tutorial: A Tutorial is a mini short course/workshop presenting a specific technical topic. It is a teaching process directed at the practicing engineer. 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.

Case Study: 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.

Technical Brief: A technical brief is a short length communication describing advances in a specific topic or issue. Unlike a Case Study (CS), the technical brief aims to showcase relevant information related to (measured) improvements in performance, predictions of system behavior, etc. (not necessarily associated to resolving an actual machine operational issue). The Technical Brief will be scheduled with a presentation time of 25 minutes, plus 5 minutes for Q/A.

 

SUBMISSION PROCESS

AUGUST 2,  2019 ABSTRACTS DUE (VI TRACK)

Abstracts, 1-3 pages in length, are due Friday, 2 August 2019. Include as much detail regarding what you intend to present in your final paper. Which type you intend to submit (lecture, tutorial, case study, short course) should be written in the abstract, preferably in the title as such, “Tutorial: Title…”, but is not required.

AUGUST 30, 2019 NOTIFICATION OF ABSTRACT SELECTION (VI TRACK)

Authors will be notified by August whether their abstract has been accepted to the manuscript round. A monitor will be assigned to each author at this time to help in the next stages of submittal, and to guide the author to ensure each paper or presentation fits within the parameters required at ATPS. Letters will include constructive criticism from the committees and indicate which session type (lecture, tutorial, case study, etc.) they would like to see as a manuscript.

OCTOBER 9, 2019 FULL MANUSCRIPTS DUE (VI TRACK)

Of the abstracts selected by the committee, a written manuscript (for Lectures and Tutorials) or a PowerPoint presentation (Case Studies) will be required from authors by Wednesday, 9 October 2019. Manuscripts must fit Turbo Lab guidelines and be approved by the author’s monitor before they are submitted to the Turbo Lab/Vibration Institute. Guidelines can be found here: atps.tamu.edu/program/. Templates, when available, will also be found at that link. At this point, the paper or presentation should be as close to a final product as possible, since the next deadline for final publication will be within a narrow window.

DECEMBER 2019 REVIEWED MANUSCRIPTS RETURNED (VI TRACK)

Decision letters from the committee meetings will be sent to authors in early December. This letter will provide the final decision of publication at the symposium.

JANUARY 2020

Final, monitor-approved submissions are due Wednesday, 15 January 2020. Copyright questions can be referred to ashton@turbo-lab.tamu.edu

APRIL 2020

The third biennial Asia Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium (ATPS 2020) is set for 7-9 April 2020. Short courses, held in conjunction with the symposium, are set for 6 April 2020.
