Conference registration


At present, we intend to host the 24th International Conference on Wear of Materials onsite in Banff, Canada from 16-20 April 2023, to best facilitate in-person networking and learning.

However, as the future situation regarding international travel remains uncertain, rest assured that should this conference be unable to take place in person, it will be changed to an online event. Should this change need to occur we will let you know as soon as we are able and your registration will be carried over to the online event, with a refund of any difference in registration fee. Should this not be appropriate for you at the time, we will be able to refund your registration, minus a cancellation fee. Should the organisers cancel the conference, you will be entitled to a full refund. Please see here for our full cancellation policy.

To protect the health and safety of all our conference attendees, Elsevier requires proof of Covid-19 vaccinations or a negative lateral flow test (taken under the supervision of authorized health professionals, within 48 hours) to be eligible to attend. This will be coupled with mask wearing throughout the conference.
