Sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Dayton Section, the symposium is designed to facilitate communication between members of the regional technical community, as well as to provide a forum for students (K-12, undergraduate, and graduate), engineers, and researchers to present their work. The symposium program includes seven parallel sessions in the morning and afternoon, a luncheon and keynote address, sponsor exhibits, and poster session.
Both oral and poster presentations are solicited in all general areas of Engineering. Specific topics areas include Structures, Solid Mechanics, Materials, Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Heat Transfer, Thermal Sciences, Design & Optimization, Manufactuering, Human Factors, Biomedical, Undergraduate Research Projects, Engineering Education, Renewable & Clean Energy. Abstracts are limited to 500 words and oral presentations are limited to 20 minutes, including questions and answers. No written paper is required and works in development for other technical forums are welcome. Best Presentation will be selected from each technical area and awarded at the annual AIAA/ASME Honors & Awards Banquet in May.
Registration and abstract submission is solely through this website. In order to submit an abstract, you must first register (please note, you may pay your registration fee or withdraw from the symposium at a later date). After registering, check for a confirmation email and follow the directions to verify the email address you used during registration is correct. After this step, you'll be able to login to your registration account to pay your registration fee, check your registration status, and submit/manage your abstract(s).
The total number of presentations is limited by room availability; therefore, if necessary, abstracts will be selected based on quality and timeliness. First consideration will be given to complete abstracts submitted by the priority deadline of 25 September, 2017. Abstracts received by the final deadline of 2 October, 2017 will be considered based on abstract quality and symposium need. Please allow sufficient time for any required public release approval.
