4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT2018)

The programme for the 4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT 2018) to be held 26-29 September 2018 in Montreal, Canada is now available to view and download.

The aim of the ICoBT meetings is to bring together researchers from across the scientific, clinical and engineering spectrum, to promote communication across the different disciplines and to provide a platform for the presentation of new work in one meeting focused solely on Biotribology.

The programme includes:

Fast nastic motion of plants and bio-inspired structures

The capability to sense and respond to external mechanical stimuli at various timescales is essential to many physiological aspects in plants, including selfprotection, intake of nutrients and reproduction. Remarkably, some plants have evolved the ability to react to mechanical stimuli within a few seconds despite a lack of muscles and nerves. The fast movements of plants in response to mechanical stimuli have long captured the curiosity of scientists and engineers, but the mechanisms behind these rapid thigmonastic movements are still not understood completely.

Two Nano-Tribology postdoctoral positions in Tel Aviv University


Two postdoctoral positions are available in the group of Prof. M. Urbakh in lively Tel-Aviv. Topics are centered around nano and micro-scale tribology (friction, dissipation, adhesion, wear) involving theory, modeling, and computer simulation of frictional and nonlinear
dissipation phenomena.

International Conference on BioTribology, 18-21 September 2011, Imperial College, London

Two postdocs at U. Pittsburgh

Two post-doctoral positions are available in the lab of Sachin Velankar in the Dept. of Chemical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh to conduct experimental research on the biomechanics of surface texturing in cephalopods (octopus or cuttlefish), and to devise reversibly-morphing surfaces.  These animals are famous for their camouflage abilities.  Like many other animals, cephalopods can change their color, but in addition, they can also change the texture of their skin by expressing protuberances or wrinkles.

ICoBT 2011 - Call for paper - deadline 15 April 2011

Topics covered include:
- orthopaedic surgery
- dentistry
- biomechanics
- biomaterials
- cosmetics chemistry
- biophysics
- biomimetics
