Online event

One year after the successful 61st German Tribology Conference held in 2020 as an online event, also the 62nd Conference from September 27 to 29 2021 will be organized this way. We were hoping that it would be possible to welcome you in Goettingen personally, but the currently increasing infection numbers, don’t allow this. Nevertheless, we rely on you that you will register as many contributions as in the last years. This year, the conference will also include a technical exhibition. You are invited to visit virtual booths
