We are delighted to announce that the 2nd Korea-Tribology International Symposium (K-TRIB2020) organized by the Korean Tribology Society (KTS) will be held from April 19 to 22, 2020, in the exciting capital city of Korea, Seoul.

The importance of tribology has been increasingly emphasized over the years as we face critical technical and social issues related to energy and environment. In this regard, tribology will continue to play a vital role in the development of novel technologies to maximize the efficiency as well as performance of machines and devices. The aim of K-TRIB2020 is to provide the platform for scientists and engineers from all over the world to share the latest information on a wide range of topics relevant to tribology. The topics will include all the major themes of tribology and other related fields.

K-TRIB2020 will be held at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in Seoul. From the venue, you can easily access the entire city as well as the surrounding areas to explore both modern and traditional cultures of Korea. Indeed, April is an excellent time of the year to enjoy the dynamic atmosphere of Seoul.

We expect K-TRIB2020 to be exciting and fruitful for all the attendees from academia as well as industry. We invite all of you to participate in this event and we look forward to hosting you in the exciting city of Seoul in April, 2020.

Sincerely,

Prof. Dae-Eun Kim
Chair, K-TRIB2020
