(Registration is being managed by the host, The University of Cincinnati.)

To ensure that we have the widest dissemination possible of the conference proceedings, at least one author must register at the full registration rate (the ASME Member/Author rate, not at the student rate) to attend and present at the Virtual Conference. This is similar to ASME's "no show" policy with our regular conferences, so papers without an author attending the virtual conference will be pulled from the official proceedings. As with our physical conferences, registrants of the virtual conference will receive full access to the official conference proceedings.

Confirm your existing ASME membership status now or join/renew to receive the member rate for the conference registration (allow approximately 1 week to process memberships).

Ensure that your Username and Password is the same for BOTH your paper submission account as well as your membership account.

Anyone attending the virtual conference including authors, presenters, chairs, and session organizers must register and pay the appropriate fee.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR AUTHORS/PRESENTERS: The registration deadline for authors/presenters is April 16, 2021. At least one author of accepted papers must register and pay a full registration (not at the student rate) by April 16, 2021 to present and be published. Each registered author may present up to 2 presentations. Poster presentations or doctoral symposium presentations will not be counted towards this limit.
