With the opportunity to organize two important tribology-related events, 40th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology and Tribochemistry
Forum 2013, prior to the WTC'2013 Torino, the organizers have decided to merge them into a Joint Event to be held at Lyon-France.
40th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology
Leeds-Lyon at 40: is the past still present?
Since 1973, tribology can claim credit for such triumphs as extended trouble-free automotive life, previously unimaginable levels of information storage, and prosthetic joint replacement to improve the quality of life of an aging population. On the other hand, the fundamental origins of friction and wear in most applications remain a mystery. The 40th Leeds-Lyon anniversary seems like an appropriate time for a major retrospective.
