Technical Program Development
The AIST Technical Conference program is developed into sessions by Technology Committee members representing iron and steel producers, their allied suppliers and related academia. The Technology Committees focus on topics of interest to them, including ironmaking, steelmaking, finishing processes, and various engineering and equipment technologies.
AIST offers three opportunities to participate in the AISTech 2010 Iron & Steel Technology Conference. Choose the option that best suits your objectives and available resources.
Option 1: Technical Paper
Papers presented during the Annual Conference are subsequently considered for publication in the AIST monthly technical journal, Iron & Steel Technology. Selection of papers for publication is based on the following factors: recommendations from sponsoring Technology Committee members; technical content, quality and current interest; quality of figures (should not require extensive reworking); and peer review evaluations. Accepted papers will be published in the AISTech 2010 Conference Proceedings and are eligible for AIST Awards and Recognition, including the Hunt-Kelly Outstanding Paper Award, which features a $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000 prize for the three highest rated papers.
Option 2: Extended Abstract
In lieu of a comprehensive paper, an extended abstract may also be submitted for AISTech 2010. The extended abstract will be made available online, as submitted, to the conference attendees for 30 days following AISTech 2010. The submission must be two pages or less and include an introduction, proposal of project or technology, confirmed results and a conclusion. PLEASE NOTE: Extended abstracts will not be published in the AISTech 2010 Conference Proceedings, will not be eligible for publication in Iron & Steel Technology monthly journal, and will not be eligible for any AIST Awards or Recognition.
Option 3: Presentation Only Submission
Abstracts for Presentation Only are also being accepted for consideration for AISTech 2010. PLEASE NOTE: presentations without a corresponding paper will not be published in the AISTech 2010 Conference Proceedings, will not be eligible for publication in the Iron & Steel Technology monthly journal, and will not be eligible for any AIST Awards or Recognition.
An abstract is required for all three options and must be received by August 15, 2009.
