18th International Congress on Rheology

The Brazilian Society of Rheology invites you to participate in the XVIIIth International Congress on Rheology, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from August 2 to August 7, 2020.The Congress convenes every four years and brings together the world’s leading rheologists to present the latest advances and developments in this field.

The Congress will include opening and closing plenary lectures and keynote lectures by eminent rheologists, contributed oral presentations organized into seventeen symposia, and a poster session. Two short courses will be offered on the weekend before the Congress, August 1st and 2nd, 2020

In addition to the technical program, an active social program is planned which will introduce the participants to the wonderful attractions of Rio de Janeiro.

Journées des jeunes rhéologues 2020/Young Rheologists Days 2020 - Sciencesconf.org

With a support of the European Society of rheology (ESR) and the French Group of Rheology (GFR), we are organizing the Young Rheologists Days 2020/”Journées des jeunes rhéologues 2020” (JJR 2020) which will be held at Giron (Jura, France), June 16-19- 2020. The main focus of this conference is to establish a discussion forum for the community of engineers and scientists in the rheology field. We aim at giving, for the first time, a more international dimension to our meeting, thanks to the privileged location of Giron. Indeed, rheologists from universities, research centers or industry will be able to report on the most recent advances in the field. It is our belief that this conference would benefit from expanding to (i) bordering countries such as Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Spain and (ii) other countries over Europe and Africa and Asia .....

The conference will include 5 Guest speakers for Plenary Lectures. Other Keynotes lectures will be also given from both eminent researchers over the world (France, UK, China, USA,...) and industry.
We expect between 70 and 90 attendees with more than 60 presentations from Phd, post-doctoral students and engineers. The objective is to give to all applicants the opportunity to present their work and exchange with rheologists from a wide range of backgrounds.

We schedule to have a friendly and convivial conference allowing our young researchers to still love the rheology and to join our societies. We are in fact particularly concerned by the aim of bridging the gap between academia and industry through the organization of ritual round-tables dedicated to young researchers, animated by confirmed rheologists and companies involved in rheology developments in different applications domain. At almost 1100 m altitude, we schedule to have a friendly conference enticing our young researchers not only in rheology field but in other concerned domains.

JJR 2020 will give you a special chance to enjoy AIN/Jura Region and its splendid mountains, making it the first tourist destination of Auvergne-Rhone Alpes. Many numerous attractions make this region a popular destination for lovers of nature, snow, exploring and fine food and gastronomy. Besides, a varied social program will accompany the conference: gathering some social activities with visits to several industrial plants and regional institutions.

For more information, please visit the conference website https://jjr2020.sciencesconf.org/ and the attached first circular.
Meanwhile, please note hesitate on spreading/sharing this information to your friends and colleagues or who work on rheology and associated research fields..
Your participation is highly appreciated and will certainly contribute to the success of the Conference.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at jjr2020@sciencesconf.org.

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.
