Abstract

The 2nd International Symposium on TriboCorrosion held on the 17th and 18th of March 2009, at the Austrian Center of Competence for Tribology, Wiener Neustadt, was a seamlessly smooth transition from the colour of vibrancy of India where the 1st International Conference in TriboCorrosion was held in 2006, to the spectacular beauty of the scenery of Austria. Starting on March 17th, St Patrick's day, the organizers were hoping for the "rub of the green" (the luck of the Irish) and what emerged during the conference, a collective and lively gathering of new and established researchers, certainly lived up to its expectations. The aim of this symposium was not only to assemble specialists in this subject from across the world to address ongoing research issues but also to contemplate education transfer of knowledge and technical innovation, and imbue our young people in the area with an enthusiasm for the topic.
