Forefront of Tribology, Sendai 2009

     Forefront of Tribology, Sendai 2009 will be held at Matsushima, one of the three most scenic spots in Japan. The symposium addresses the recent state-of-the-art technology and research of the tribology to the world-wide energy and environmental problems as well as the sustainable development of the society. In the tribology field, the development of new materials for low friction and wear, new surface texturing, and new lubrications and lubrication methods is strongly desired. Moreover, the detailed understanding of the fundamentals of friction and wear in nano-scale is necessary for such development.
     The symposium will bring together internationally-known active researchers and engineers as plenary and invited speakers to discuss new cutting-edge technologies and researches as well as new trends and future directions in the tribology field. The organizing committee hopes that this symposium will be fruitful and successful  for all the speakers and attendants to stimulate discussion, to identify opportunities and to encourage new collaborations  on these subjects in new decade.
