German Tribology Conference 2019

This year the GfT will celebrate its double anniversary: on November 17th 2019, the founding of the Gesellschaft für Schmiertechnik (GST), predecessor of the GfT, marks its 60th  anniversary. From the beginning on, annual conferences were held, so the German Tribology Conference from September 23rd – 25th will also be the 60th this year.

Even after all these years, there is no shortage of current issues in the areas of friction, lubrication and wear: Alternative fuels require adapted lubricants, electric mobility calls for low-friction, highly efficient components, energy transition and stricter environmental legislation bringing new demands on tribologically stressed components and their materials. That’s why the 60th German Tribology Conference will definitely be exciting and up-to-date as never before, and the best opportunity to gather information on the latest research in this field, to present your own results and to discuss with experts and colleagues.

According to the anniversary event, plenary lectures on the 60th anniversary of GfT, the past and future development of the field, greetings from the USA, Japan and the Netherlands will open the conference. Consistent with the anniversary, the panel discussion “Tribotalk” will address the topic “The Future of Tribology: Challenges and Opportunities”.

In addition more than 100 specialist lectures and scientific posters from industry and research institutions as well as an accompanying trade exhibition with new and proven products related to tribology are planned.

We sincerely hope to welcome many of you to the 60th German Tribology Conference in Goettingen. .
