The 2017 Friction, Wear and Wear protection symposium focuses on the latest developments in materials and coatings development for ultra-low friction and wear, as well as friction materials, polymers and PMC’s. Since 2008, it is held every three year under the auspices of the technical committee „Materials aspects of tribology and machining“ of the German materials society, DGM.
The Scientific Programme can be found here.
The Keynote Speakers for the international Symposium:
Dr. Volker Weihnacht, Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS Dresden
the amazing tribology of hydrogen-free amorphous carbon coatings
Prof. Alfons Fischer, University of Duisburg-Essen
