Retrospect: Industrial and Automotive Lubrication / 12–14 January 2016

The 20th event of the International Colloquium Tribology was not only an anniversary, but also an updating of this conference, that has been well-established for 40 years.

The newly formed and highly committed Programme Committee had looked over a large number of abstracts and prepared a high quality programme, designed to address almost all aspects of industrial tribology, staging 200 presentations in 8 parallel sessions. Among the speakers were many of the most prestigious tribologists from all over the world.

From the 650 participants, out of 34 countries, we received a lot of positive feedback regarding the enhanced quality of the programme and the organization.
In the exhibition 30 companies put their products on display for an international professional audience.
The newly arranged excursion to a Daimler plant in Sindelfingen on Friday was well received and will be offered again in the future.

The 21th International Colloquium Tribology will take place in January 2018. You will find more information here in due time.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
