1. Academic Honours for Tribology Laureate
We are informed that the University of Leeds conferred an Honorary Doctorate of Engineering on Tribology Laureate, Professor Duncan Dowson CBE DSc FREng FRS.
Professor Dowson also received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Bradford, the Vice-Chancellor (Rector) of which is Professor Christopher Taylor, FREng, formerly Head of the Institute of Tribology and Professor of Tribology at the University of Leeds.
International Tribology congratulates Professor Dowson on these honours.
2. Award to Professor Rowe
The prestigious Walter R Evans Award for 2004 has been conferred to Professor Brian Rowe for his outstanding work in the development of pressurised bearings.
3. Dr Irina Goryacheva
Dr Goryacheva has been made a full member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. She has also been elected President of the Russian National Committee of Tribology and at the end of last year was elected as President of the Scientific Tribology Council of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Science and Technology. The Council was formed in 1961 with one of the main aims being to bring together all tribologists in Russia. The International Tribology Council congratulates Dr Goryacherva on these very well deserved recognitions of her work, abilities and standing.

6. World Tribology Congress (12-15 September 2005
The following editorial of Dr Christopher DellaCorte (pictured) appeared in the May issue of Tribology Lubrication Technology
Don’t miss out on WTC III
By Dr. Christopher DellaCorte
As TLT editor, I thoroughly enjoy the many benefits from writing this column each month. One major benefit is the opportunity to make observations about our industry that interest me and, I hope, you.
Another benefit is what I like to call an “Editor’s Prerogative.” By this I mean it is my responsibility to use this column as a communications tool to inform readers about STLE activities and events. This column is a bully pulpit of sorts from which I can project what I feel are important messages. I try not to abuse the privilege too much or too often.
However, I might be crossing the line, as I will use this column to shamelessly promote the upcoming World Tribology Congress III, Sept. 12-16, 2005, in Washington, D.C. WTC III marks the first time this international conference will be held in the United States. The first two meetings were held in London and Vienna, Austria, in 1997 and 2001, respectively.
This conference, co-sponsored by STLE and ASME in conjunction with the International Tribology Council, brings together some of the top tribology scientists, researchers and engineers from around the world. Along with being held in beautiful Washington, D.C., this conference has all the makings of an excellent meeting. I should know.
I have the honour of serving as One of the eight technical program Chairs for the WTC. It is our job as the program chairs to solicit technical content (papers, symposia, panels, etc) and help assemble the program. Each chair has a specific technical concentration. For example, I am responsible for aerospace, and my colleagues are covering a wide range of tribology topics such as power generation, surface engineering, nanotribology, lubricants and many more.
This conference is sure to be outstanding, and I urge you to consider participating. If you would like to submit an aerospace paper abstract, contact me. Otherwise, please visit our conference website: wtco5, where you can find further information regarding the Call for Papers and contact information.
By the way, don’t expect me to send you a Call for Papers postcard in the mail. I figure in today’s ever changing world my Rolodex addresses are so out of date that anything I mail won’t get through. Consider this column to be your personal official invitation to join us at the World Tribology Congress III.
Remember, Sept. 12-16, 2005, in Washington, D.C. I’ll see you there!

7. Texan Researchers develop materials friction software
Research has shown that the characterisation of the friction of viscoelastic materials, such as fibre, textiles, etc., is complex and requires an in-depth knowledge to predict their performance. (Generally, smaller friction forces are associated with smoother fabrics which are often softer and considered higher quality materials.)
Seshadri Ramkumar, Ph.D., Research Associate at the Institute of Environmental and Human Health at Texas Tech University, and his associates have developed software to calculate the friction factor for textiles and Texas Tech University is making the user-friendly product available to the materials industry.
Further details can be obtained from: Seshadri S Ramkumar, Research Associate, The Institute for Environmental and Human Health, Texas Tech University (806) 885-0228 or s.ramkumar @ ttu.edu/p>

8. Japanese Society of Tribologists Have New President
Professor Masato Tanaka has stepped down as President of the Japanese Society of Tribologists (JAST). Professor Kaneta of Kyushu Institute of Technology has now taken over the role and will also serve as Vice-President of the International Tribology Council on behalf of JAST.
9. Prof Tonder Honoured With ASME Division Plaque
The 11th Nordic Symposium on Tribology, Nordtrib 2004, took place in Norway between the 1st and the 4th June 2004. Organisation of the event was led by Professor Krisian Tonder. During the conference dinner Prof Tonder was awarded the ASME Tribology Division plaque for his outstanding co-operation with ASME
10. South African Honour for Tribology Laureate
For his outstanding contribution to science and tribology, Tribology Laureate Prof.Dr. Wilfried Bartz from TAE, Germany had conferred upon him the Louw Alberts Prize, the highest award of the South African Institute of Tribology
11. First UK Professor of Tribotechnology
The first British Professorial Chair in Tribotechnology has been awarded to Ian Sherrington, Director of the “Jost Institute for Tribotechnology” at the University of Central Lancashire.
Prof. Sherrington has been instrumental in developing the policy and plans for the Institute which involve activities based around emerging demands in the industrial sector. These activities involve: teaching and training, research and commercial developments which contribute to the tribological knowledge base as well as specific projects with industry to explicitly network the users and providers of tribotechnology, notably in the areas of condition monitoring, fluid management and coatings technology.
Much of Prof. Sherrington’s research work has been focussed in the area of tribometry. He has previously been awarded the Thomas Stephen Tribology Group prize and the Tribology Bronze Medal by the Tribology Council. He is presently a member of the I.Mech.E Tribology Group Committee, Chairman of the Group Awards “Task Force” and sits on the Editorial Panel for the Journal “Engineering Tribology” published by Professional Engineering Publications
