Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers Opens Call for Presentations for Fall 2023 Technical Conferences

The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) — the technical society for individuals in the field of tribology and lubrication engineering — has announced that presentations are now being accepted for its co-branded events, the 2023 Tribology Frontiers Conference (TFC) and Tribology & Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference Nov. 12-15, 2023, at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Tower in Cleveland, Ohio.

The co-branded events give tribology and lubrication professionals two opportunities to share and learn the latest science in the field — all in one location. STLE is currently seeking submissions on a variety of technical topics, including biotribology, fluid lubrication, tribochemistry, electrification, EV hardware, grease and thermal management, among others. Attendees will join researchers from around the globe at the 2023 STLE Tribology Frontiers Conference as they exchange the newest research in tribology and lubrication; STLE Tribology & Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference participants will explore the latest technical challenges and commercial opportunities impacting the future of electric vehicle technologies.

“We’re excited to announce the return of both fall conferences in 2023,” said Ed Salek, CAE, STLE’s executive director. “By combining these two popular events, we’re able to maximize networking opportunities for attendees while offering them an expanded content program, all under one roof.”

  • Graduate, Undergraduate and Early Career Researcher Poster Competition

  • “Beyond the Cutting Edge” Special Symposium (organized by the editors of Tribology Letters).

STLE Tribology & Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference

The 2023 STLE Tribology & Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference will be held with the TFC from Nov. 14-15. The event will feature educational sessions and networking discussions with leading industry experts covering technical content, analysis and best practices for addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with electric vehicle technologies and how they will impact the tribology and lubrication field. The deadline for e-mobility conference abstract submissions is June 15, 2023.

Highlights include:

  • Expert-led presentations from leading companies and organizations with an interest in e-mobility

  • Panel discussions on state-of-the-art developments in electric vehicle technology and lubrication

  • Networking opportunities
