Abstract:
The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers focuses on friction and wear. Friction occurs in all moving parts, nano scale or larger. At the STLE Annual Meeting, May 18-22, 2008, in Cleveland, OH, USA, there are two days worth of developments in nanotribology from the world‚s leading researchers.

63rd STLE Annual Meeting

Cleveland, OH | Posted on February 29th, 2008

Interested in Little Things?

The Annual Meeting of the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers focuses on friction and wear. Friction occurs in all moving parts, nano scale or larger. There are two full days worth of sessions devoted exclusively to the growing field of nanotribology.

At STLE‚s Annual Meeting, May 18-22, 2008, in Cleveland, OH, USA, you can learn about a number of exciting developments in nanotribology from the world‚s leading researchers.
There are 17 papers in the Nanotribology Technical sessions. These highly technical papers span such subjects as potential new additives based on nanoparticles, development of techniques for characterization of nanoscale friction and wear mechanisms, and nanoscale surface modification.

There is also a joint panel discussion with the Solid Film Lubricants and Nanotribology Technical Committees, which shows the increasing level of interest and importance of this growing topic. The panel discussion, and Prof. Jean Michel Martin, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France, addresses the big question: Can current lubricants be engineered or incorporated with nano-scale solid lubricants to attain much superior performance or property improvements? The panel is comprised of the world‚s leading experts in the field:
Dr. Ali Erdemir, Argonne National Laboratory - moderator
Prof. Jean Michel Martin, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France - moderator
Prof. Reshef Tenne, Weismann Institute of Science, Israel
Dr. Frances Lockwood, The Valvoline Company, US
Dr. Selda Gunsel, Shell Global Solutions, US
Dr. Atanu Adhvaryu, Caterpillar, US
Dr. Michael Chandross, Sandia National Laboratory, US
Prof. Nobuo Ohmae, Kobe University, Japan

Just as nanotechnology includes an interdisciplinary universe of products and study, so does tribology. Other technical tracks including the Lubrication Fundamentals, Surface Engineering and Solid Lubricants sessions also cover a variety of nano related topics as our ability to measure and study phenomena at the nano level is impacting our entire view of the world. So, to cover this topic you must read the program guide carefully not to miss something that affects your interests.

Complete program information, plus online registration and hotel reservations, are available at www.stle.org.
