Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

The Sixth World Tribology Congress (WTC 2017) will be held in Beijing, China, on September 17–22, 2017, after the sessions in London (1997), Vienna (2001), Washington D.C. (2005), Kyoto (2009) and Torino (2013). WTC 2017 aims to highlight recent important progress in all aspects of tribology and strengthen the links between academia and industry.

The idea behind the Special Issue is to create a comprehensive collection of peer-reviewed articles that address the specific themes of research, that was covered on the WTC 2017. Please find a detailed description at following link: http://www.wtc2017.org/en.

Researchers not attending the conference are also welcome to present their recent research, as well as review papers. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: 

  • Science of Tribology
  • Wear & Surface Engineering
  • Lubrication and Lubricants
