Cohort 2 researcher Jamal Umer tells us abou the event;
I attended the conference on 14th and 15th March-2018 at the IET Austin Court Birmingham. This 2-days conference was an excellent opportunity to learn about recent progresses in the field of tribology. The keynote speakers were well-famous tribologist from universities and industries. In addition to those there were quite interesting poster talks from PhD students from various universities. This conference had various talks ranging from lubricant additives, friction, wear and coating technologies. In-situ measuring techniques to measure wear in tribometers by gathering online topographical data was interesting experimental procedure. and topography was quite interesting. Conversations with several speakers also directed me to further literature review that will make me think of new aspect of current research. It was also good opportunity to get in touch with my industrial sponsor.
