The BALTMATTRIB 2009 conference provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research and technology on all aspects of materials research and tribology.

All aspects of materials science and tribology are welcomed as topics for papers including experimental and theoretical work, as well as case studies. Presentations dealing with practical problems and their solutions are especially welcome for promoting collaboration between universities, research institutes and industry. The BALTMATTRIB 2009  accepts papers, which make an original contribution to the field of science and engineering. The non-exclusive list of conference topics includes:


  • Advanced materials design and optimization – materials, structures, applications

  • New materials and materials characterization – novel test methods, sensors, and measurement techniques, microstructural characterization

  • Environmental degradation of materials – mechanisms of degradation, materials to resist degradation in harsh environments

  • Processing and fabrication – materials development, processing and parameters

  • Friction  and wear - fundamental aspects, wear resistant materials, wear prevention
    Industrial tribology – industrial problems and case studies

  • Tribology of machine elements – gears, bearings, seals, clutches, engine and transmission components
    Tribology of materials – metals, composites, polymers, ceramics, coatings

  • Coatings and surface engineering– functional surfaces, coatings, surface characterization, interface

  • Powder materials and powder metallurgy
