14th - 17th June 2016 - Aulanko, Hämeenlinna, Finland
The NORDTRIB symposium is held biennially in one of the Nordic countries:
Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Over the years the Symposium has evolved
into a highly regarded venue for the international tribology community.
NORDTRIB is intended as a forum where researchers and developers from
universities, research institutes and industry can present their latest
contributions and also discuss field-related issues.
In 1984, the NORDTRIB symposium was held for the first time in Finland. In
2016 the 17th NORDTRIB Symposium will take place in Finland in the City of
Hämeenlinna. Conference venue is Spa Hotel Rantasipi Aulanko in Aulanko. NORDTRIB 2016
will be hosted by the Finnish Society for Tribology and VTT Technical Research
Centre of Finland Ltd.
The registration is now open.
Special IEA session on Tribology in Transportation
On Wednesday between 11.30 and 17.40 three special sessions on Tribology in Transportation are arranged jointly by NORDTRIB and International Energy Agency (IEA) programme on Advanced Materials in Transportation (AMT). The sessions are open to all NORDTRIB delegates.
The purpose of the IEA AMT programme is to facilitate the introduction of advanced materials to enable the development of energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies for motorised road vehicles. This is accomplished through joint developmental research, information exchange, international round robin studies and demonstration projects. Research organisations from the following countries have signed up to join IEA AMT: Germany, United States, Canada, China, United Kingdom, Australia, Finland, Israel and Korea.
The three IEA sessions will present research results from the AMT programme on the topics: Surface topography effects on friction and wear, Thin coatings and their modelling, and Surface texturing and lubricated wear.
