Summer school of Italian association of Tribology (AIT) @ Palazzo Fruscione
Aug 28 – Sep 1 all-day

The lecture topics includes, but not limited to:

Thin film flow modelling. Including hands-on finite difference method implementation of a solution procedure for the 2D Reynolds equation in cylindrical coordinates.
Modelling cavitation in hydrodynamic lubrication by means of the LCP method.

Computational methods for the solution of contact problems, with focus on the boundary element method and the finite element method.
The effect of roughness in contact mechanics, including multi-field problems.

Friction and wear of fullerene-like WS2 & MoS2  nanoparticles. Mechanisms and Applications
Friction, wear and structure of FCC metals and alloys in the transition from elasto-hydrodynamic to boundary lubrication.

Contact mechanics of viscoelastic materials

44-th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology
Sep 4 @ 08:00 – Sep 6 @ 18:00
9th International Conference on Tribology BalkanTRib’17
Sep 13 – Sep 15 all-day

The scope of this conference embraces the state of art and future trends in tribology research and application, emphasizing the necessity of facilitation intellectual collaboration across both disciplinary and national boundaries.

The 6-th World Tribology Conference @ Beijing International Convention Center
Sep 17 @ 08:00 – Sep 22 @ 17:30
27th International Workshop on Computational Mechanics of Materials @ Maria Theresia College
Sep 20 – Sep 22 all-day

The IWCMM series aims at covering a broad range of materials and of modelling and simulation techniques to predict their mechanical response. Bringing the respective communities in both academia and industry in touch with each other, it has created a lot of synergy over the years. Recent editions took place in Madrid (2014), Bochum (2015) and Tomsk (2016).

Behaviour of journal and thrust bearings under transient and mixed lubrication regime: 16EDF Prime Workshop
Oct 5 – Oct 6 all-day
The International TWC Wear Seminar
Nov 2 all-day

The International TWC Wear Seminar concentrates on the selection and development of coatings for wear protection, tribological and wear testing of coatings, and practical aspects of wear resistant coatings.

Nov 15 – Nov 17 all-day
ICTIE 2017 : 19th International Conference on Tribology and Interface Engineering
Dec 4 – Dec 5 all-day

Conference Aims and Objectives

The ICTIE 2017: 19th International Conference on Tribology and Interface Engineering aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Tribology and Interface Engineering. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Tribology and Interface Engineering.

Call for Contributions

All honorable authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Tribology and Interface Engineering are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. The conference solicits contributions of abstracts, papers and e-posters that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research materials.WASET

Conference Proceedings

All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The post conference proceedings will be abstracted and indexed in the International Science Index , and submitted to be indexed in the Google Scholar, Scopus and Thomson Reuters. The conference abstracts and proceedings book, CD and certificate of presentation will be distributed to participants at the conference registration desk.

Special Journal Issues

ICTIE 2017 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Tribology and Interface Engineering. A number of selected high-impact full text papers will also be considered for the special journal issues. All submitted papers will have the opportunity to be considered for this Special Journal Issue. The paper selection will be carried out during the peer review process as well as at the conference presentation stage. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journal or publication. The final decision for paper selection will be made based on peer review reports by the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief jointly. Selected full-text papers will be published online free of charge.
