Friction 2021 - Save the date

Good news for the #Friction2021. The "European Symposium on Friction, Wear and Wear Protection" will take place from 18-19 November as an online conference on the Virtual Conference platform provided by the German Materials Society (DGM). Take the opportunity and submit your contribution from 01 May to 30 July.

Given the fact that industrial applications leave no room for trial-and-error solutions, the conference wants to showcase and spread a deeper understanding of the underlying microscopic mechanisms in the tribological contact.

Looking forward the #Friction2021 discusses six urgent topics by scientists and researchers.

  • A: Wear resistant alloys
  • B: Low friction coatings
  • C: Ceramics and ceramic matrix composites
  • D: Polymers and polymer composites
  • E: Additively manufactured Tribosystems
  • F: Material-lubricant interactions

The conference program will be complemented by invited lectures and plenary talks in addition to submitted papers and posters.

Going virtual the #Friction2021 reaches out to scientists around the globe to exchange thoughts, discuss contributions, and strengthen their respective networks.

Benefit from the Early Bird Tickets until 01 June 2021 and save as the early bird prices.
