Prof. H. Peter Jost
Lithuanian Scientific Society Department "Tribologija" would like to send their condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Professor H. Peter Jost. The deepest condolences are extended to the International Tribology Council for the loss of its founder and President. His vision in establishing the field of Tribology and leadership in guiding the researches from many diverse areas will be sorely missed. Prof. Jost has devoted a tremendous effort to support newly established tribology societies, including one in Lithuania, and his encouragement and enthusiasm cannot be understated. The members of Lithuanian Scientific Society Department "Tribologija" will be commemorating the enormous contribution of Prof. Jost to the field of tribology throughout the upcoming BaltTrib conference in 2017.
On behalf of Lithuanian tribologists
