STLE’s First Virtual Tribology Frontiers Conference Breaks New Ground in InnovationOctober 26, 2020
The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE)--the technical society serving individuals, companies and organizations that comprise the tribology and lubrication engineering business sector—will host its inaugural STLE Tribology Frontiers Virtual Conference November 9-13, 2020. The five-day online learning experience, co-sponsored by the Tribology Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), will feature nearly 140 presentations and 80 hours of programming exploring how tribology can solve technical, environmental and societal concerns in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, metalworking, transportation and energy.
Tribology Frontiers Week will feature a peer-curated series of keynote speakers, plenary talks, and technical sessions from leading tribology researchers and institutions from around the world. Speakers will address key areas at the forefront of tribological science, including biotribology, energy, environment and manufacturing, fluid lubrication, lubricants, machine elements and systems, surfaces and interfaces, and tribochemistry.
The 2020 conference will leverage a user-friendly, virtual meeting platform that will safely provide attendees with a full conference experience, including daily poster sessions, virtual exhibits, one-to-one meetings with industry professionals, up to 10 hours of networking, and live Q&A opportunities with academic and industry leaders. Visitors also can attend “Spotlight Talks” by well-known principal investigators, a continuing-education course provided by the ASME Tribology Division, and a symposium organized by the editors of Tribology Letters.
