Covid-19 and Tribology TN Event Cancellations
New Challenges in Tribology, 2020 – Cancelled!
It is with considerable regret that we announce the cancellation of this year’s “New Challenges” conference. The escalating Covid-19 situation is inevitably creating mounting uncertainty, with potential delegates understandably delaying their registrations and existing registrants potentially impacted by future Covid-19 transmission prevention measures. We are no longer able to guarantee the valuable, broad networking and exhibitor interactions that provide the essential added value to participation in the scientific and technological presentation/poster sessions of the conference.
We apologise for the inevitable inconvenience caused. Conference registrants and sponsors will of course be contacted soon regarding the refunding of their fees. Rest assured that “New Challenges” will be back in 2021 and in the interim we will be exploiting other ways to support the Tribological Community!
Thanks to everyone for your support of the “New Challenges” conference, and particularly to this year’s hosts, the University of Birmingham’s Metallurgy & Materials Department.
Dr Kevin Cooke – Chair, IET Tribology Technical Network
The Invention of Tribology - Peter Jost's Contribution - 9 June 2020
The TN have also had to cancel the above lecture but will review at some point whether they can reschedule this later in the year.
The Tribology TPN supports the event of the IOP Tribology Group which was formed in 1980 to provide a forum for the discussion of current developments in fundamental aspects of interacting surfaces. Tribology, which broadly covers the field of friction, wear and lubrication of surfaces in relative motion, is an interdisciplinary subject drawing on knowledge from the fields of physics, chemistry, metallurgy and engineering. The group organises events and awards prizes in its field. You can find out more information about the group and its events here.
See the Tribonet website here. for more information on their activities.
The IET Tribology Network is a partner organisation in UK Tribology which is a multi-institution collaboration designed to raise awareness of the subject and application of tribology; the study of interacting surfaces in relative motion or, in layman's terms: friction, wear and lubrication.
