CfP by 14.10.2022: NEXTLUB – 1st International Conference on Tribology and Sustainable Lubrication

Increasing sustainability, ecological and geopolitical demands create new challenges for tribologists and lubrication experts. Such non-technical functionalities in addition to the well-known premium attributes of lubricants and tribological systems generate new technological requirements. Promoting appropriate innovative technologies and closing knowledge gaps are the intentions of the 1st International Conference on Tribology and Sustainable Lubrication – NEXTLUB.

April 18 - 19, 2023 
Maritim Hotel, Düsseldorf, Germany 

The conference is organized by the three associations FVA, GfT and UNITIJointly, the organizers cordially invite you to submit abstracts on the following topics by October 14, 2022
