CALL FOR PAPERS – NLGI 85TH ANNUAL MEETING
A call is hereby issued for technical papers for presentation at the NLGI 85th Annual Meeting, which will be held at The Coeur d’Alene Resort, Coeur d’Alene, ID, USA from June 9th – 12th 2018. You do not need to be an NLGI member in order to present a technical paper at our Annual Meeting.
THE NLGI 85TH ANNUAL MEETING THEME FOR 2018:
Grease Currents: Lubrication in an Electrified World
Greases are used to protect and lubricate a wide variety of applications in our evermore electrified world. These include electricity generation (wind turbines, nuclear power stations, even solar arrays) as well as electrically-powered applications (electric vehicles, electric motors, robotics and general electronics). Papers related to these grease applications and which may focus on environmental or safety concerns, performance or testing are of special interest and will be given priority. How can greases contribute to cost savings, improved performance and efficiency in electrical applications?
Technical papers approved for presentation at the Annual Meeting may be published in the NLGI Spokesman, after evaluation by the NLGI Editorial Review Committee.
NLGI will also accept up to 4 papers of a commercial nature. One presentation of a commercial paper will be held at the beginning of each of our 4 Technical Sessions during the NLGI Annual Meeting and will not conflict with any other presentations or events. Commercial papers will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. (A fee of $1,000 will be charged for all commercial papers accepted for presentation.)
If you are interested in submitting a technical or commercial paper for presentation, please send your name, contact information and abstract to: NLGI
