Description

FANAS is a new series of conferences initiated as annual meetings of the ESF EUROCORES Programme FANAS (www.esf.org/fanas), but is open to all scientists working on related topics. The focus of the conference is on revealing the relationships between adhesion and friction at the nano- and micro-scales as well as on mechanisms of energy dissipation in tribological systems. It will seek to bridge the gap between the nano-, micro- and macro-scales in friction, lubrication and adhesion, and will elaborate on new approaches towards control and modification of frictional properties. Issues of nano-manipulation at interfaces, studies of biomimetic tribological systems and tribochemistry will also be addressed. Following the spirit of past meetings the conference will be organized as a single-session event including poster sessions and allowing for ample time for discussions.
