This two day event will attempt to address current challenges in productivity through Tribology and materials and surface coatings and will provide an update of the latest developments in materials analysis equipment in this field.

Call for posters

Your chance to get involved - could you deliver a poster?


Do you have an exciting project that you're working on in the field of Tribology that could be of interest to your peers?


Tribology is the science and technology of interactive surfaces in relative motion. It incorporates various scientific and technological disciplines such as surface chemistry, fluid mechanics, materials, lubricants, contact mechanics, bearings, and lubrication systems. It is customarily divided into three fields: friction, lubrication, and wear, and most work in tribology covers at least two of these.


Submit a 200-word abstract for an opportunity to be invited to exhibit a poster and deliver a short presentation. There will even be a panel of judges on the day who will interview you informally and watch your session - with certificates being awarded  Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Tribology and tribo-engineering
  • Coatings and surface engineering
  • Testing and condition monitoring
  • Lubrication chemistry

Why exhibit a poster?

  • Meet potential employers from industry and academia
  • Network with your peers
  • Enter the competition to gain recognition for your achievements
  • Showcase your work and get expert feedback

By entering this Poster Competition you will have the opportunity to win a book from our supporters Taylor & Francis Group.

The winner will also be invited to submit a paper to the Taylor & Francis Group

Abstracts need to be received by Friday 16th February 2018. Please submit your abstract using the below template to Ashley Rowe.
