Abstract:Many important issues about bearings were identified by Fritz Leonhardt, keynote speaker at the Congress. His main point was that bearings should be designed and installed to function effectively for up to 100 years. Problems in achieving this goal were discussed. . .The session identified areas in which additional work is needed; these are summarized in a table.

The Congress, attended by over 300 people, was an outstanding success.
