24th International Colloquium Tribology

In a series of 23 successful events, the International Colloquium Tribology has become a fixture in the event calendar of tribologists and those working in related fields. Participants from around the world come to exchange ideas, present their latest findings, make business contacts and forge new friendships. ICT typically attracts more than 400 participants.

The 24th event, which will be held in Ostfildern/Stuttgart, on January 23-25, 2024, will feature more than 150 presentations in 6 parallel sessions and several plenary lectures with high-profile invited speakers.
