Nanoscale Effects in Tribology (NET 2011) Meeting - Last call for papers
(Nanowerk News) There are currently many exciting new developments occurring in tribological materials, which depend on processes occurring at the nanoscale.
The invention of new nanostructured materials with designed tribological performance, and enhanced nanoscale understanding of 'old' tribological materials, are being facilitated by many new technologies becoming available to analyze friction, lubrication and wear.
This meeting will address the advances occurring in nanoscale tribology, providing attendees the opportunity to network, and discuss trends and future developments.
We hope you will be able to attend and present your work at this NET 2011 meeting. Attendees will have the opportunity to network, and discuss trends and future developments in the nanotribology area.
Registration is open until Friday, 10th June 2011.
