    International Conference on Understanding and Controlling Nano and Mesoscale Friction

    21- 26 June 2015
    Istanbul, Turkey

    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, nanotribology, with great
    potential impact on technology and everyday life. Applications include
    safety, economy, life quality, energy and material saving, toward a
    sustainable development. Europe has a strong scientific nanotribology
    community encompassing physics, materials science, chemistry, earth and life
    sciences, and including academic and industrial research alike. This
    community has been expanding and collaborating for the past decades. Since
    2014 COST Action MP1303 is providing an official framework for a widespread
    and efficient networking. The present Conference provides a crucial occasion
    to develop this network.

    Conference venue: Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Findikli Campus, Istanbul, Turkey

    Important dates:

    Abstract submission: 05.01.2015 – 15.02.2015

    Notification of acceptance: 15. 03. 2015

    Announcement of program: 15. 04. 2015
