20th International Colloquium Tribology
Industrial and Automotive Lubrication
12–14 January 2016
Stuttgart / Ostfildern, Germany
Call for Papers
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 20th 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. We invite all researchers in this area to submit their abstracts for review and presentation in this conference.
Venue: The 20th International Colloquium Tribology will take place in a biannual rhythm in the vicinity of medieval charming city of Esslingen and in the metropolitan area of Stuttgart (Automotive Capital of Germany).
