Sixth International Conference on Fluid Sealing The sixth International Conference on Fluid Sealing will be held at Munich, Germany from February 27 to March 2,1973, and is being sponsored by the British Hydromechanics Research Association (BHRA) Fluid Engineering in conjunction with the Hydraulics and Pneumatics Section of the Verein Deutscher MaschinenbauAnstalten, e.v. (VDMA). The official languages at the conference will be English and German with simultaneous translation. Papers will however be accepted in English only although presentation may be in German. Papers dealing with applications, development work, basic research, theory and experiment are welcomed in the following fields : Dynamics sealsmechanical, rotating, reciprocating, including soft packing, elastomeric, etc. Static seals-gaskets, metallic seals, couplings, sealants, etc. Materials for seals. Seals for marine applications. Vacuum seals. High pressure seals. Offers of papers should be sent to: H. S. Stephens, Sixth I.C.F.S., B.H.RA. Fluid Engineering, Cranfield, Bedford, England, from whom further information is available. Performance Testing of Lubricants for Automotive Engines and Transmissions The Institute of Petroleum is organising an International Symposium on the above subject at the Montreux Palace Hotel, Montreux, Switzerland, April 26, 1973. The object of the conference is to encourage international agreement on the performance tests of lubricants. For further information contact: Mr. C. H. Maynard, Administrative Secretary, The Institute of Petroleum, 61, New Cavendish Street, London, WIM 8AR. Symposium on Colloid and Surface Chemical Aspects of Lubrication and Lubricants This symposium, organ&d by the Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group of the Society of Chemical Industry, will be held in the School of Chemistry of the University of Bristol on the 19th, 20th and 21st September, 1973. It is planned that the topics discussed will include, forces involved in lubrication, interaction between the lubricants and the surface, colloid chemistry of lubricants and lubrication in biological systems. Accommodation has been arranged at Hiatt Baker Hall, a hostel of the University of Bristol, for the period of the Symposium. The papers will be preprinted and distributed to participants before the Symposium. Persons wishing to submit papers, or requiring further information about the meeting should communicate with Professor R. H. Ottewill, School of Chemistry, University of Bristol, BS8 1 TS Wear, 21 (1972)
