22nd International Colloquium Tribology
The conference provides an international exchange forum for the industry and the academia. Leading university researchers present their latest findings, and representatives of the industry inspire scientists to develop new solutions. Discussions and cooperation enable attendees to meet current tribological challenges.
One of the main topics of the 2020 conference is the forthcoming e-mobility technology, its various aspects and its consequences for the lubrication and tribology community. Additionally, the programme includes highly qualified presentations dealing with applications of machine learning as well as artificial intelligence in lubrication, condition monitoring, material development and sustainable lubricants.
