Nanoscale Effects in Tribology Meeting - 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.
The Nanoscale Effects in Tribology (NET 2011) Meeting will address the advances occurring in nanoscale tribology, providing attendees the opportunity to network, and discuss trends and future developments.
Speakers will include:
Max Groenendijk, Lightmotif B.V.
"Engineered surfaces machined by ultrashort pulsed lasers and their applications"
Fabrice Dassenoy, Lyon
"Tribological Properties and Lubrication Mechanisms of Nanoparticles"
MS Bobji, Indian Institute of Science
"In-situ analysis of wear particles and nanocontacts"
Topics will include the synergistic areas of:
Nanostructured tribological coatings
Nanoparticles for tribology and lubrication
Surface texturing and patterning for tribology
Low energy tribology
Tribo-bio-nano for healthcare
Tribology of functional devices
Dynamical mechanisms of friction, lubrication and wear
New methodologies/instrumentation for evaluating tribology at the micro/nano-scale
Submission of Abstracts
We encourage attendees to submit oral or poster contributions to NET 2011.
Please submit an abstract, title and author list (up to 300 words) to [email protected]
