2018-09-09 to 2018-09-13
ICE Krakow, Poland

Dear participants,

Ochrona przed Korozją (Corrosion Protection) is the only one Polish journal entirely dedicated to the corrosion prevention issues (ISSN: 0473-7733, e-ISSN 2449-9501), being published from 1958. Ochrona przed Korozja is indexed in Master Journal List (Emerging Sources Citation Index), BazTech, ICI Journal Master List (Index Copernicus), ProQuest, ARIANTA, PBN-POL-Index and Google Scholar. According to the latest ranking by Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, Ochrona przed Korozją was given 12 points out of 15, which is definitely a satisfactory result. In 2017 European Federation of Corrosion (EFC) decided to add our journal to the official journals of the EFC.

The journal was selected by Polish Corrosion Society for paper submission from EUROCORR 2018 that will be held in Krakow.

All the research articles are reviewed. What is more, our journal is mostly published in both English and Polish. We deliver its paper versions to our subscribers, whereas the electronic one is available on our Technical Information Portal

We would like to invite research teams to publish your articles in our journal. We are in a constant search of experienced researchers and specialists who are willing to share their knowledge with others. Your contribution would be highly appreciated. Editorial requirements and editors policy are available on the journal's website:

E-mail for submitting manuscript:

We invite you to submit your papers!

Sincerely yours

The 6th Asia International Conference on Tribology (ASIARIB2018)
2018-09-17 to 2018-09-20
Hilton Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

Asia International Conference on Tribology (ASIATRIB) is the mega event in the series of International Tribology Conferences under the auspices of the Asian Tribology Council (ATC), the apex body of national tribology society of Asia-Pacific countries such as China, Korea, Japan, Australia, India, Malaysia and others. This conference is organized every four years with the great involvements from the various universities and major industry players.

In 2018, Malaysia will become the first South-east Asian country to host ASIATRIB. The sixth series of ASIATRIB will be organized by Malaysian Tribology Society (MYTRIBOS). The conference will take place in Kuching, Sarawak Malaysia, from 17 to 20 September 2018. ASIATRIB2018 is supported by the Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovative Malaysia (MOSTI) and the International Tribology Council (ITC).

The objectives of the conference are:
• To share the pioneering research ideas among academicians, researchers, students, authorities, and practitioners from universities, industries, institutions, and related agencies all around the world through oral presentations.
• To create a platform for bilateral cooperation between interested parties among delegates in the spirit of sharing ideas through creative and innovative approaches and pushing the frontier of knowledge forward in the respective areas of research.
• To provide an opportunity for delegates especially young researchers and students to meet up in person with established and renown people from local and abroad in the respective field to get experiences, exchange research ideas, and build rapport through informal discussions. link

16th International Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering
2018-09-17 to 2018-09-21
Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

With a continuously growing interest in the preceding PSE events, with more than 700 participants from all over the world in 2016, PSE is a well-established and leading forum in the field of plasma as well as ion- and particle-beam assisted surface modification and thin film technologies.

PSE provides an opportunity to present recent progress in research and development and industrial applications. Its topics span a wide range from fundamentals such as e.g. process modelling and simulation of plasmas or thin film physics, through experimental studies which establish the relationships between process parameters and the structural and functional properties of modified surfaces and/or thin films, towards the application in industrial production.

With numerous industrial exhibitors and a large fraction of participants from industry (36% in 2016), a special feature of PSE is the intimate and vivid interaction between those being involved in basic research and those who have to meet the rapidly increasing demands in industrial production.

PSE 2018 will be dedicated to “MEMS in our everyday life”. Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have infiltrated our daily lives, having found their way into a broadening variety of applications from smartphones to cars, with millions more uses in between. Applications

are becoming increasingly diverse in nature, and each has its own unique specifications. The role of plasma processes for the elaboration of MEMS will be stressed out to fulfill the “magic” triptych: smaller footprint, lower cost, and higher performance. link

The 3rd International conference on Polymer Tribology
2018-09-24 to 2018-09-25
Grand Hotel Bernardin, Portorož, Slovenia

The use of polymer materials in tribological contacts has increased rapidly in the past few decades. The demand for the polymer-based tribological contacts is evermore increasing, and this trend appears to hold in the future as well.

There are several aspects of polymer properties, production, design and use that could be further improved and tailored to achieve better friction and wear performance, which is the goal of this conference.

After the 2nd Polytrib conference held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2016, with more than 70 attendees from 18 countries, and more than half coming from industrial sector, the 3rd PolyTrib conference tends to bring together a broader range of participants in the whole exploitation chain, from the research and manufacturing to the sales sectors. The goal is to enlarge the audience and serve as a world-wide recognised event for exchange of knowledge in tribology of polymers, which is broadly lacking today.

The conference will welcome several distinguished invited keynote speakers, regular technical sessions, posters, exhibition and social events, with accompanying persons programme. link
