NRC 2019 - NRS

Nordic Rheology Conference
Gothenburg, August 21-23, 2019
The conference covers all aspects and areas of rheology. Industrial case studies and academic research papers are both welcome. The aim is to bring together and enhance the exchange of knowledge between researchers, users, application specialists and instrumentation manufacturers in Nordic countries and beyond.

The NRC2019 highlights the rheology of cellulose systems relating to the use in polymer composites, coatings, paper, pulp, pharmaceuticals, food, etc. The pulp and paper industry is important in the Nordic countries and special attention will therefore be given to this field. Other subjects of special interest for NRC2019 include food, polymeric materials and bio-applications.

Congrès Français de Mécanique 2019, Brest

Chers collègues, Chers amis,
L'édition 2019 du Congrès Français de Mécanique, organisée par l'Institut de Recherche Dupuy de Lôme (IRDL, UMR CNRS 6027) et tous ses partenaires bretons, se tiendra à Brest sur le site de l’Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO), du lundi 26 au vendredi 30 août 2019.
Ce rassemblement biennal d'acteurs académiques et industriels est l'occasion majeure d'échanger tant sur les récentes avancées théoriques, numériques, expérimentales que sur les dernières applications industrielles.
Le CFM 2019 couvrira l'ensemble des domaines de la Mécanique (37 sessions, 4 mini-symposiums et 5 évènements associés) et s'intéressera en particulier à la thématique "Mécanique et la Mer : les enjeux scientifiques et technologiques".
N'hésitez pas à consulter la page web du congrès : https://cfm2019.sciencesconf.org
Le flyer est disponible sur le lien suivant : https://cfm2019.sciencesconf.org/data/pages/FLYER_CFM_Brest_2019.pdf
L'envoi des résumés est ouvert et possible jusqu'au 15 janvier 2019 sur https://cfm2019.sciencesconf.org/page/instructions_auteurs

Dans l'attente de vous accueillir nombreux à Brest.

Conférence Powders & Grains

Since 1989, the Powders and Grains Conference is held every four years with the goal of providing an up-to-date picture of the broad research field of powders, grains, and granular media. Based on the topics covered in previous conferences, and considering key emerging areas, the conference themes include granular solids, granular flows, granular gas, constitutive modeling, particle properties, cohesive materials, and applications to geomaterials and constructions, biomaterials and life-sciences, soil-root/plant interactions, reactive powders, geological scale modeling, pharmaceuticals, nano-granular materials, granular suspensions and colloids. Granular-related abstracts on all above research themes are welcome.
