Dear Colleague,


this is a gentle reminder about the CISM course:


"Modelling and Simulation of Tribological Problems in Technology"  

Udine, May 28 - June 1, 2018


Important dates:



Regular registrations:


Although CISM accepts registrations till the week before the course, we kindly suggest to make your registration asap, possibly before the end of March / Middle of April. This will allow us for a better planning of the course organization.



Scholarships by CISM:


A limited number of participants from universities and research centres who are not supported by their own institutions can be offered lodging and/or board, if available, in a reasonably priced hotel or student guest house to attend.


Requests should be sent to CISM Secretariat by March 28, 2018 along with the applicant's curriculum and a letter of recommendation by the head of the department or a supervisor confirming that the institute cannot provide funding. Preference will be given to applicants from countries that sponsor CISM.





So far we already received 18 registrations. We plan to provide the attendees with the latest trends on a wide range of topics related to contact mechanics and tribology.

We are also very glad to announce the *new* publication of Professor Jim Barber's book on contact mechanics: 



Thank you very much for promoting our initiative among people from academia and industry interested in tribology.


Yours sincerely,


The course lecturers, 


A. Almqvist (Lulea University, Sweden)
J.R. Barber (University of Michigan, USA); 
D. Dini (Imperial College London, UK); 
D.A. Hills (University of Oxford, UK); 
M. Paggi (IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, Italy)
