Scope and background
The significance behind the ITC Sendai 2019 logo
The logo is designed as a motif following the shape of the helmet worn by the warlord, Masamune DATE. This symbol illustrates contact points, physical and chemical interactions, in addition to friction, wear, and lubrication at the contact interface. This logo also expresses a hope for further development of TRIBOLOGY through contact and communication of tribology scientists and engineers throughout various disciplines at ITC Sendai 2019.
