Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The importance of tribology has been increasingly emphasized over the years as we face critical technical and social issues related to energy and the environment. In this regard, tribology will continue to play a vital role in the development of novel technologies to maximize the efficiency as well as performance of machines and devices. In this Special Issue of Lubricants, selected papers from the 2nd Korea-Tribology International Symposium (K-TRIB2020) will be published. Contributions can be articles describing original research, methods, hypothesis and theory, opinions, and more traditional reviews. A 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges is available for all the attendees of K-TRIB2020. The aim of K-TRIB 2020 is to provide a platform for scientists and engineers from all over the world to share the latest information on a wide range of topics relevant to tribology. The topics will include all topics related to lubricants as well as other major themes of tribology.
