To have the best possible Virtual Conference experience, we are offering the opportunity for each paper presentation to be uploaded to our virtual site, for viewing either during the virtual program or on-demand following the event.

To ensure that we have the widest dissemination possible of the conference proceedings, at least one author per paper must register to attend 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 not be included in-the official proceedings. Registration deadlines apply- please see below.

As with our physical conferences, registrants of the virtual conference receive full access to the conference proceedings. Virtual Conference registration fees are sharply discounted from the regular conference fees.

Attendees who pay the Non-Member registration rate are offered a One-Year ASME Membership (complimentary) following the conference.


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, and other attendees must register and pay the appropriate fee.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR AUTHORS/PRESENTERS: The advance registration deadline for authors/presenters is July 13, 2020. At least one author of accepted papers must register and pay by July 13, 2020 to present and be published.

Cancellation Policy: No refunds will be allowed. All registrants will have access to the pre-recorded presentations On Demand between July 20, 2020 and November 1, 2020 as well as the conference proceedings.

Presentation Policy: All scheduled presentations MUST be formally uploaded via pre-recorded videos (see narrated PowerPoint instructions) due July 13, 2020. "Technical Publication" type presentations will be available on the conference app starting July 20, 2020, only if an Author or Co-Author of that paper presents and uploads the presentation. “Technical Presentations” will be available on the conference app starting July 20, 2020. A separate copyright release is required for the presentation. We recognize that this places an extra burden on some Authors and Co-Authors, and as such uploading a presentation is not a requirement for the paper to be included in the official proceedings.
