23rd International Conference: Wear of Materials - (Wear of Materials 2021)

Important Deadlines:

  • Abstracts for full papers/oral presentations deadline: 29 May 2020
  • Poster abstract submission deadline: 5 February 2021
  • Early Bird Registration Deadline: 5 March 2021

The 23rd International Conference on Wear of Materials will take place in majestic Banff, Alberta, Canada from 25-29 April 2021.

The conference will focus on advances in the understanding of both the fundamental and applied aspects of wear and friction of materials and will provide an international forum for researchers and practicing engineers from different disciplines to interact and exchange their latest understandings. The conference is also unique for its paper submission process with full peer review in collaboration with the Elsevier journal Wear to ensure technical quality of presentations.

This edition of the conference will include special sessions on wear and related topics in aviation and aerospace applications, renewable energy applications, biotribology, engine tribology, tool wear, modeling and simulation and surface texturing for wear reduction.  A full list of topical areas are listed below.
