There is no requirement to submit a manuscript to one of the three journals (ASME Journal of Tribology, Tribology Transactions, or Tribology Letters) for inclusion in the Conference. Submission of a manuscript to one of the journals is encouraged, however, all decisions regarding acceptance for presentation at the Conference, and for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings, will be based on the short abstract or the 2-3 Page Extended Abstract that you submit through the Conference web site.
