7th ATZ Conference on Tribology "Friction in the Powertrain and Vehicle" | Call for Papers | Closing date is 18 April 2018

Friction in the powertrain and vehicle - Climate protection and air quality are the TOP issues in the public and thus also in the automotive industry - Further reducing CO2 and NOx emissions has a high development priority

How do we maintain unrestricted mobility, which ensures our prosperity and quality of life? The enavlers for this are vehicles - networked with each other and with the environment - and powertrains with different degrees of electrification. The increasing complexity can be mastered by understanding the causal relationships in the vehicle as a whole. Therefore, in the future we would like to open the perspective of the traditional conference beyond the powertrain.

The conference focus is on the powertrain including internal combustion engine and / or electric motor, transmission, electrical storage and fuel cell. In addition to optimising the friction of individual components, the complete propulsion system is of particular importance. Beyond this holistic approach, further potential for optimising friction can be exploited in an increasingly digitised world.

The 7th ATZ conference on tribology "Friction in the powertrain and vehicle", which will take place in Esslingen from 20 to 21 November 2018, will once again offer research and development engineers a wide range of topics for the exchange of information and experience this year.

You are cordially invited to contribute to the conference: Please submit your paper not later than 18 April 2018. The conference language is German.
