We are delighted to announce that the 3rd Korea-Tribology International Symposium (K-TRIB2023) organized by the Korean Tribology Society (KTS) will be held from April 2 to 5, 2023, in the beautiful marine city of Korea, Busan.

The importance of tribology has been increasingly emphasized over the years as we face critical technical and social issues related to energy and the 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 the performance of machines and devices. The aim of K-TRIB2023 is to provide a 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-TRIB2023 will be held at the Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXCO) in Busan. From the venue, you can easily access the entire city as well as the surrounding areas to explore the beautiful nature and the cultures of the second largest city in Korea. Indeed, April is an excellent time of the year to enjoy the dynamic atmosphere of the marine city, Busan.

We expect K-TRIB2023 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 Busan in April 2023.
