Conference Announcement

April 15 - 17,199l: Frontiers of Tribology Stratford-upon-Avon, U.K. The Tribology Group of the Institute of Physics in the U.K. has been actively organising meetings since 1981 to discuss physical aspects of the subject, particularly focussing upon the underlying mechanisms. An international conference is being arranged to celebrate its 10th Anniversary. Papers will cover all aspects of tribology, with an emphasis on physical principles. They will be refereed and published in a special issue volume of Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics. Designers, physicists, engineers, researchers and manufacturers will find this conference a valuable opportunity to exchange ideas and become updated with the latest state of knowledge. Eminent world authorities will deliver keynote lectures in each of the main subject sessions. Scope The conference is planned to cover the following topics: adhesion, friction and wear, hydrodynamic and elastohydrodynamic lubrication, boundary and solid lubrication, surface coatings and surface engineering, surface analysis, properties of lubricants and additives, machine elements, electrical and magnetic effects, contact mechanics and surface topography, temperature effects Other suggestions outside these main areas will be considered and there will be a number of interesting invited presentations. Exhibition Spaces will be available to exhibit equipment and associated services. Participating organisations are invited to take this opportunity to bring their products to the attention of potential clients. Further information and the call for papers notice, when available, can be obtained from The Meetings Office The Institute of Physics 47 Belgrave Square London SWlX SQX U.K. (telephone, 01235 6111; telex, 918453; FAX, 01259 6002)
