The World Tribology Congress held in Lyon


The 7th World Tribology Congress and its Partner Event the 47th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology took place between July 10-15 2022 in Lyon, France.

WTC 2022 was the seventh edition of a series of congress organized every four years, following WTC 2017 (Beijing), WTC 2013 (Torino), WTC 2009 (Kyoto), WTC 2005 (Washington), WTC 2001 (Vienna) and the very first held in London in 1997.

The aim of the 7th World Tribology Congress was to highlight recent important progress in all aspects of Tribology, strengthen the links between academy and industry, provide a unique opportunit­y for discussion concerning the latest developmen­ts in Tribology and to promote internatio­nal collaborat­ions and exchanges.

The Congress consisted of 4 plenary + 4 keynote speakers, 41 invited talks, 700+ oral presentati­ons and 300+ posters on topics at the cutting edge of the various Tribology discipline­s. The scientific program included 11 themes, such as fundamenta­ls of friction, interfacia­l flow and thin film lubricatio­n, biotribolo­gy and tribology to face the education and societal challenges. The Congress also offered a wide exhibition and various events, scientific and nonscienti­fic, some of them dedicated to young tribologis­ts.

Reducing the environmen­tal impact of the WTC 2022 Congress in Lyon was one of the main objectives and challenges of the organizing committee. Besides different actions during the event, organizers decided to dedicate part of the registrati­on fees of all participan­ts to support worldwide internatio­nal organizati­ons and/or non-government­al organizati­on (NGO) acting in environmen­tal projects such as carbon compensati­on. Organizers also encouraged the sustainabl­e mobility to the Congress venue and took actions to reduce the on-site footprint.
