ASMC 2012 – Authors Instructions
A preliminary ASMC 2012 call for papers will be posted in the coming weeks. At ASMC, you will interact with professionals who are interested in learning from your experiences and expertise. As an author/speaker, you have a tremendous opportunity for industry exposure and recognition, as well as the occasion to network with your peers, suppliers and customers, and academia.
If you abstract is accepted, your paper must be presented in person. Submission of an abstract to ASMC represents a commitment to present an original, non-commercial, peer-reviewed paper at the conference. ALL technical manuscripts will be published in the ASMC 2012 proceedings. If you cannot confirm that your paper will be presented in person by either yourself or a co-author/proxy, your paper will not be considered.
