The 89th Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology will be held in Denver, Colorado on October 8-12, 2017; the optional associated short course will be offered October 7th and 8th. The technical program will take place at the Embassy Suites in center of downtown Denver. Local attractions include dozens of shops and restaurants on the 16th Street Mall (just 2 blocks from the Embassy Suites), Pixabay] Colorado History Museum (site of the Monday reception), Colorado State Capitol, and many other opportunities for dining and site-seeing.
The average high and low temperatures in Denver during October are 66°F and 33°F, respectively, with an average 1.4 inches of precipitation. Temperature decrease dramatically after sundown in the Mile High City, so plan on bringing a jacket even if predicted high temperatures are in the 60s or 70s.

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.
Adhesion is a phenomenon that plays an important role in many technical applications as well as in biological systems and medical applications. Many aspects of this phenomenon are still not well understood. The workshop is intended to provide an intensive exchange of information on the state of research on the rapidly developing area of “adhesion and friction”, whereby “friction” also means “internal friction” (and thus adhesion of elastomers). Invited are representatives of physically and mechanically oriented research as well as representatives of the fields of application – in mechanical engineering, biology and medicine. The targeted applications are adhesion both on the macroscopic level and on the scale of cells (which is of great importance, for example, in cancer research) and even on the scale of individual molecules
· Influence of macroscopic shape on adhesion
· Influence of roughness on adhesion
· Numerical simulation of adhesive contacts
· Experimental studies of adhesion
· Adhesion of viscoelastic media
· Interplay of adhesion and friction
· Modeling of adhesive contacts with friction
· Adhesion and tribology of gradient materials
· Adhesion and friction in biological microstructures
· Adhesion of cells and testing methods based on adhesion
· Molecular adhesion
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
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.

Enhancing the efficiency and durability of machines by controlling friction and wear is receiving an enormous and increasing significance in modern industrial applications. New stringent environmental legislations oblige companies and OEMs to enhance the efficiency of products to comply with higher loads, lower viscosities and restricted lubricant ingredients. To efficiently address this demand, the clever combination of design methodologies, new materials, modern lubricants and additives have to be realised. New lubricants and additives have to be tailored for new materials and the other way round the lubricants and additives have to be considered as design criteria.
The Programme Planning Committee of the 21st international Colloquium Tribology, as one of the world-wide largest international conferences in Tribology, is attempting the goal to provide a forum for technical and scientific exchange between lubricant and additive manufacturers, automotive OEMs, component manufacturers, suppliers, research organizations and universities.
