The idea was the creation of a platform for an exchange of ideas dealing with the Energetical Approach of Tribology.
That was also the reason to name the Colloquium „Arnold Tross“ (see the picture). Because he was one of the first scientist in Germany who investigated tribological processes from an energy point of view.
But of course the Colloquium is open for all topics related to Tribology. And there was a very wide range of topics presented in the past.
Until now we organise a one-day Colloquium. In 2014 we had two parallel sessions. One of the specifics of our conference is the open atmosphere for discussions.
