WG1 meeting 2016: Dynamics of spatially-extended frictional interfaces

November 28, 2016 @ 8:00 am - November 30, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
Weizmann Institute of Science, Weizmann Institute of Science
Rehovot, 7610001 Israel

This small meeting will focus on the dynamics of spatially-extended frictional interfaces, i.e. on the macroscopic end of the scale bridging subject of WG1. It will bring together a few experts, including from non-COST countries, from the physics, engineering and geophysics communities. A significant fraction of the meeting will be devoted to open discussions that will focus on outstanding problems in the field (frictional instabilities, nucleation, super-shear rupture, bi-material interfaces, finite-size effects, lubricated interfaces).

6th European Nanomanipulation Workshop

September 23, 2015 @ 9:00 am - September 25, 2015 @ 12:00 am

The 6th European Nanomanipulation Workshop will be held in Germany at the University of Giessen from September 23rd-25th. The workshop will focus on strategies, methods and theoretical considerations of manipulating nanosized material, surfaces, particles and molecules. The strong link to atomic and mesoscopic friction phenomena is particularly emphasized. The number of participants is typically around 40-50, which results in an atmosphere ideal for discussion and personal exchange of ideas. The series of "European Nanomanipulation Workshops" was initiated in 2010 with previous…

International Conference on Understanding and Controlling Nano and Mesoscale Friction Important dates: Abstract submission: 05.01.2015 – 15.02.2015 Notification of acceptance: 15. 03. 2015 Announcement of program: 15. 04. 2015   About the conference: Recent years have seen widespread efforts to understand the mechanisms of friction and tribology in micrometric structures (mesoscale) down to the realm of atoms and molecules (nanoscale), with the ultimate goal of controlling friction, adhesion and wear by design. This research has generated an interdisciplinary scientific area,…
