Lecture Guidelines
A Lecture is a presentation of a technical paper detailing cutting-edge, emerging turbomachinery or reciprocating compressor technology. The described technology should have been successfully field tested at least once and include field experience. A lecture presentation is 45 minutes long, including time for Q&A.

Tutorial Guidelines
A Tutorial is a mini short course/workshop. It is a teaching process. Presenters are encouraged to bring in equipment for hands-on instruction. Tutorials consist of 75-80 minutes of presentation and 10-15 minutes of questions and discussion.

Short Courses
A Short Course is a full-day training session presented concurrently with other short courses on the first day of the Symposia. Short Courses run from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm with a 75-minute luncheon and two 30-minute breaks. Please submit a detailed abstract, including a course philosophy and goal, an outline, and a written summary of who the audience is and what they will learn.

Case Study Guidelines
A Case Study is a short informational PowerPoint presentation describing the successful implementation of established turbomachinery or pump technology to solve a real-world problem. Case studies concisely relate a Problem, its Solutions, and the Lessons Learned. Each invited Case Study is 30 minutes long and includes five minutes for questions. Presentations consist of 10-20 slides. Stories relating the failure of others, such as manufacturers or suppliers, will not be permitted.
