Euradh 2008 - Adhesion ‘08
Tenth International Conference on the Science and Technology of Adhesion and Adhesives

3-5 September 2008
Oxford, UK


Following the success of the Euradh conferences at Karlsruhe in 1992, Mulhouse in 1994, Cambridge in 1996, Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1998, Lyon in 2000, Glasgow in 2002 and Freiburg im Breisgau in 2004, Euradh 2008 will take place in Oxford from 03 – 05 September 2008. Euradh 2008 will also encompass Adhesion '08, the 10th in the series of international conferences held, since 1980 on a triennial basis in the UK.

The scientific committee, which is drawn from specialists well-known to the international adhesion community and is co-chaired by RA Chivers (UK), E Papon (France) and W Possart (Germany), now requests papers on any of these aspects of the science and technology of adhesion and adhesives:

  • Fundamental aspects of adhesion
  • The science and technology of surfaces
  • Bio-adhesion and cellular adhesion
  • Properties of surfaces
  • Engineering aspects of adhesion and engineering applications
  • Super-molecule structures used in adhesives
  • Advances in adhesive materials
  • Environmental and ecological aspects
  • Mechanical properties of bonded joints including their durability
  • Quality procedures, testing and standardisation
  • Innovative designs and applications
  • Industrial aspects
The Conference programme will give a high priority to poster sessions.

The 7th Wake Memorial Lecture and the presentation of the de Bruyne Medal for 2008, will form the centrepiece of the Conference; previous recipients of both awards can be seen on the 'Awards' page at
