Dear Colleagues;

     I have attached the Call for Papers for the SPE ANTEC 98 meeting as 
a plain text document. Normally I would post an im such as this to a 
public Web site, but I was at a loss as to which one to use in this case. 
Since the deadline is drawing near I felt that I should get the info out 
to you as quickly as possible. Please let me know if this method worked 
for you. The file is a short one, so I have tried to avoid encoding it. 
You should be able to edit the relevant part of this message into an html 
document that you can save to your local disk. Just cut on the dotted 

     I am calling this to the attention of the worldwide SAS community 
because I believe that the session on "SAS for the Industrial Plastic 
Laboratory" that Brian Landes and I are organizing is a good opportunity 
for people who use SAS to solve real problems with polymeric materials to 
let some of their accomplishments be known.

     I am recruiting a few of my acquaintances to make presentatioins, 
but I would be really delighted to see some surprises in the mix of 
contributions. Please let me know if you are interested. Signing up 
requires submitting a hard copy of the Call for papers accompanied by a 
100 word abstract. The signup form is available on the Web at the hot 
link embedded in the document that I have sent you.

Thank You

   <LI><B><FONT SIZE="+2">"Measurement Techniques for Polymer
   Characterization, Processing and Manufacturing" </FONT></B>{Joint

      <LI><B>Scope:</B> Session will emphasize measurement techniques
      and sensor development. Measurements for monitoring polymer
      processing and manufacturing as well as new and improved
      measurement techniques for off-line polymer characterization
      will be the focus of this session.

   Plastics Laboratory"</FONT></B> {Joint with EPSDIV}
      <LI><B>Scope</B>: Small-Angle Scattering (SAS) methods are
      important tools for characterizing the microstructure of
      plastic materials. This symposium emphasizes the ways in which
      SAS has been applied to support commercial products and
      processes. Presentations include broad reviews of the field as
      well as case studies on specific materials ranging from
      semi-crystalline polymers, to glasses and other classes of

   <LI><B><FONT SIZE="+2">"Measurement Technologies for Porous Media
      <LI><B>Scope:</B> Measurement technologies to characterize
      porous media are in critical need of improvement to support
      materials development efforts in composites, catalysts,and
      separations. Many design methodologies that use these materials
      require detailed data on the porous structure to predict, e.g.,
      permeability and mechanical properties. Yet the time necessary
      to obtain the media structure is prohibitive. Papers are
      solicited that demonstrate advances in porous media
      characterization technology.

   Microscopy Methods"</FONT></B> {Joint with EPSDIV}.
      <LI><B>Scope:</B> Transmission and scanning electron microscopy
      are widely used to study the structures of homopolymers,
      polymer blends and composites and correlate them with material
      properties. Papers which use either new methods of microscopy
      or include the study of novel materials are most welcome.

   <LI><B><FONT SIZE="+2">"Rheology in Plastics
   Characterization"</FONT></B>. {Joint with ARSIG}.
      <LI>Scope: Rheological measurements are important tools both
      for basic materials characterization and process control.
      Conventional rheological measurements methods such as zero
      shear viscosity and dynamic modulus and their relationship to
      molecular characteristics are considered. More difficult
      measurements such as normal stress differences are increasingly
      being used in characterization and process monitoring.

   <LI><B><FONT SIZE="+2">"New Methods of Analysis for Molecular
   Weight Determination" </FONT></B>
      <LI><B>Scope:</B> Recent advances in mass spectrometry (MS) and
      Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) open new vistas to obtain
      molecular weights and molecular weight distributions of
      synthetic polymers. This symposium focuses on MALDI MS of
      synthetic polymers and new SEC methods including critical
      chromatography and SEC using multi detector systems.

   <LI><B><FONT SIZE="+2">"Materials Modeling for CAE Design
   Applications"</FONT></B> {Joint with PD3 }
      <LI><B>Scope:</B> As design engineers utilize CAE to predict
      manufacturability and end product, performance, there is an
      increasing need to produce material property models that
      represent the behavior of plastics under the conditions being
      simulated. In this session, we solicit papers on the modeling
      of rheology, thermal, tensile and compressive deformation,
      impact, creep, stress relaxation and fatigue phenomena and
      their application to CAE.
