2021 STLE Student Poster Competition

STLE is seeking student posters for the 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting & Exhibition. Event organizers are inviting students from all areas of tribology research to participate in a special session dedicated to student posters. Virtual posters must deal with an aspect of tribology research that can be translated into friction, wear and lubrication. Student poster research topics can be co-authored by faculty and other researchers, but only students may exhibit their posters and discuss their work at the session. The posters will be judged by a conference committee, and awards will be given to the best nine posters.
You must be a current STLE student member and be registered to attend the Annual Meeting in order to participate.
