11th International Conference on Industrial Tribology (ICIT)

Theme : "Tribology for Energy, Environment and Society"

December 1-3, 2021 | New Delhi, India


Tribology is defined as the science and technology of interacting surfaces. It involves friction, wear, lubrication and many other surface related phenomena. Although the tribological problems and solutions have been the subject of human endeavor since the antiquity, the word tribology was first mentioned in a UK Government report in 1966 under the chairmanship of (Late) H Peter Jost. Many studies since then have clearly shown that there are huge economic losses incurred globally because of issues related to tribology. It is estimated that about 1.4 % of the gross national product (GNP) of industrialized nations could be saved by paying attention to the losses due to tribology and providing appropriate solution. There will be even greater savings in the global energy and materials if friction in machines can be minimized and controlled. Together, it will reduce the carbon footprint and save the global environment.

With the aim of addressing the issues of tribological problems and their solutions, the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (India) is organizing the international conference IndiaTrib-2021 under the aegis of the Tribology Society of India.

Tribology Society of India (TSI) is a premier professional society set up with a vision to spread awareness and practice of Tribology all across India. To fulfill this mission, the Society has been organizing International Conferences on Industrial Tribology biennially in different parts of the country, to enable the practitioners of tribology to discuss and showcase their work in various aspects of this multidisciplinary area.

A few student awards will be announced soon for this conference.

Scope of IndiaTrib-2021

The focus of IndiaTrib-2021 are studies that are being conducted around the world in various disciplines which are all connected by the basic principles of tribology.
