Tribology Conferences / Events
Please, share tribology conferences and events in TriboCalendar! You can send the information regarding the event to [email protected] Thank you!
Among the basic tribological phenomena of contact, adhesion, friction, lubrication and wear, wear remains the least scientifically understood. At the same time, wear remains one of the most important tribological phenomena in practice, affecting all aspects of our lives and current technologies. Our understanding of the fundamental processes of wear has been improving recently, due to new theoretical approaches, improved experimental techniques and rapidly growing numerical capabilities. It is felt that now it is the right time to revisit the subject of wear intensively, with a special focus on the understanding of physical mechanisms. The workshop “Science of wear” serves to survey the state-of-the-art in the field of wear research and to map out likely developments in the near future. From a technical point of view, three topics will be in the foreground:
– Interaction of plasticity and adhesion during wear
– Use of modern simulation techniques for prediction of wear
– Low wear conditions
· Interplay of adhesion and plasticity in adhesive wear
· BEM simulations of wear of heterogeneous media
· Wear of functionally graded materials
· Wear particles Emission
· Fretting, fatigue, structural damping
· Molecular dynamics simulations of wear
· Wear of artificial joints and implants
· Materials for tribological applications
· Systems with minimal wear
· Third body: modeling and simulations
Call for papers
If you are interested in participation, please submit an abstract in English not later than June 30, 2018 (preferably by e-mail).
Asia International Conference on Tribology is an event in the series of International Tribology Conferences under the auspices of the Asian Tribology Council (ATC), including countries such as China, Korea, Japan, Australia, India, Malaysia and others.
The use of polymer materials in tribological contacts has increased rapidly in the past few decades. The demand for the polymer-based tribological contacts is evermore increasing, and this trend appears to hold in the future as well.
There are several aspects of polymer properties, production, design and use that could be further improved and tailored to achieve better friction and wear performance, which is the goal of this conference.
After the 2nd Polytrib conference held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2016, with more than 70 attendees from 18 countries, and more than half coming from industrial sector, the 3rd PolyTrib conference tends to bring together a broader range of participants in the whole exploitation chain, from the research and manufacturing to the sales sectors. The goal is to enlarge the audience and serve as a world-wide recognised event for exchange of knowledge in tribology of polymers, which is broadly lacking today.
The conference will welcome several distinguished invited keynote speakers, regular technical sessions, posters, exhibition and social events, with accompanying persons programme.
The 4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT 2018) will be held in Montreal, 26- 29 September 2018.
Biotribology plays an important role in many aspects of our everyday life, from the functioning of articular joints and the comfort of contact lenses to the behaviour of cells and the development of skin injury, such as blisters and bedsores. It is a multidisciplinary field which combines biology, materials, chemistry, surface physics, mechanics and medicine. The aim of the ICoBT meetings therefore is to bring together researchers from across the scientific, clinical and engineering spectrum, to promote communication across the different disciplines and to provide a platform for the presentation of new work in one meeting focused solely on Biotribology.
ICoBT 2018 builds on the successes of the previous three ICoBT meetings. Each meeting had a programme containing over 150 oral and poster presentations and was attended by over 200 delegates with a very diverse background. Sessions covered topics ranging from fundamental science to industrial and clinical applications. The fourth ICoBT will take us to the beautiful city of Montreal, where we introduce a new schedule to the conference, meaning that the meeting will start on the afternoon of Wednesday 26 September and run until midday, Saturday 29 September.
Contributions are welcomed from scientists, researchers, engineers and clinicians working in academia, industry and medicine on fields such as orthopaedic surgery, dentistry, biomechanics, biomaterials, soft matter, cosmetic chemistry, biophysics and biomimetics. The topic of research must be predominately tribology and include a biological surface as part of the interface (e.g. articular cartilage, skin) or have a direct impact on biological function (e.g. prosthetic joints, dental implants). Oral and poster presenters will also be invited to submit a full paper to a Special Issue of the journal Biotribology and participate in the ‘ICoBT 2018 Best Paper Award’ competition.

The Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology is held in mid-October. The meetings ordinarily last three to four days and are open to both members and non-members. Every effort is made to stimulate and encourage fruitful discussion during the technical sessions, with 25 minutes normally allotted to the presentation and discussion of each paper. There are normally no more than four simultaneous sessions, and the program includes plenary lectures, special symposia, informal evening discussions, and instrument exhibits. A banquet is held to honor the recipients of the Society’s awards: the Bingham Medal, the Journal of Rheology Publication Award, and the Distinguished Service Award, all for outstanding contributions to rheology. The Annual Meeting for those years during which an International Congress of Rheology occurs (2004, 2008, etc.) is held early in the following year (except when the ICR is held in the United States).
The Tribology Frontiers Conference (TFC) is where tribology researchers share their latest work and explore our science’s role in solving tomorrow’s key technical issues. Come visit one of the world’s most exciting cities and join us for four information-packed days with tribology’s top minds – you’ll leave with a better understanding of how your company’s products will fit into an ever-evolving technical future. More than 300 tribology researchers are expected to attend.

“Tribochemistry Hakodate 2019” will be held on September 12 (Thu.) – 14 (Sat.), 2019 in the Hotel Takubokutei, in Hakodate, Hokkaido, Japan. It will be held as a satellite forum of ITC-Sendai.This is the 8th international forum on tribochemistry organized by the Tribochemistry Technical Committee, Japanese Society of Tribologists (JAST).This international forum on tribochemistry has been held as a satellite forum of ITCs and WTCs since 1995: 1) 1995 in Tokyo, Japan, 2) 2000 in Tsukuba, Japan, 3) 2005 in Nara, Japan, 4) 2009 in Kyoto, Japan, 5) 2011 in Hagi, Japan, 6) 2013 in Lyon, France, and 7) 2015 in Nikko, Japan.
This forum will also be held under the cooporation of the Research Association for Computer Application to Catalysis, Catalysis Society of Japan (CatSJ). It will offer invited and contributed presentations in oral and poster sessions.
