CenTiRe was provided a booth location at the Tire Technology Expo held in Cologne, Germany February 10~12. Ron Kennedy manned the booth during the Expo, and was able to make several good contacts that will hopefully lead to new members. It was also nice to meet some of our current members who were attending the Expo and the accompanying technical conference. Dr. Saied Taheri chaired a session at the technical conference, and three of our graduate students, Anudeep Bhoopalam, Yaswanth Siramdasu, and Karan Khanse, made presentations in the session. These were well received by the attendees.
