Tribology includes the themes of lubrication, friction and wear. We are first inclined to think tribology in the context of industrial applications but lose sight of the myriad of ways it affects our daily lives.

We wake up and blink our eyes. We chew and taste our food and we brush our teeth. We use a sponge to clean the table. We put on slippers to get around the house and sport-shoes for a run sometimes in rainy conditions. We take our car or our bike to get around. We interact with computers and phones through touchscreens. We participate in sports and fitness activities during our leisure hours. In all these actions and activities, tribology is present. It is part of our daily life. It conditions our attitude, our behaviour and our interactions with the many environments.

This Leeds-Lyon 2019 will be dedicated to tribology in daily life. Contributions on tribological issues we experience every day, whether related to our personal, leisure or professional activity, are requested.
In many cases, advances in traditional tribology improve these daily activities, and we welcome presentations in this area as well.

The conference will be held in the peaceful venue of Valpré, as for the last editions in Lyon.
