Nowadays the importance of contact and surface problems in many technological fields is well understood. They are complex and inherently non-linear due to the moving boundary and the different properties of materials; particularly along the contact surfaces. The use of surface treatments can reduce the cost of components and extend the life of the elements. Their effect is of particular importance in the case of surfaces undergoing contact, a problem that will be specifically addressed by the conference.
The Meeting will particularly emphasise the application of advanced theories and experimental techniques. Participants will be encouraged to critically review existing ideas and to explore new areas of research.
The Conference Series first started in Southampton, UK (1993); continued in Ferrare and Milan, Italy (1995); Oxford, UK and Madrid, Spain (1997); Stuttgart, Germany and Assissi, Italy (1999); Seville, Spain (2001); and Crete, Greece (2003).
