April 14 to 17 at Nantes events centre, La Cité.
AERC 2015, the 10th Annual European Rheology Conference will be held in Nantes, France, April 14-17 2015. Information for the meeting, exhibition and short courses is now available at the conference web page at http://rheology-esr.net/events/aerc-2015-nantes/, where you can submit abstracts and register. Note that the deadline for submitting abstracts for oral or poster presentation is November, 30th 2014.
The plenary lectures will be given by Prof. Jian Ping Gong (University of Sapporo, Japan, Department of Soft and Wet Materials), and Prof. David Pine (University of New-York, Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering), the 2015 Weissenberg Awardee (ESR) and the 2015 recipient of the Maurice Couette Award (GFR).
The Conference will have 10 thematic sessions and a poster session, which includes a student/post-doc poster competition. The planned symposia are as follows:
– Advanced techniques and methods in rheology
– Colloids, suspensions, and granular materials
– Confined flows, microfluidics and rheology at the microscopic scale
– Food, cosmetic, active and biological rheology
– Interfacial phenomena, foams and emulsions
– Nano, micro and macroprocessing
– Polymers in solutions, self‐assembling systems and gels
– Polymer melts, blends, composites and solid polymers
– Simulations and computational rheology
– Structured flows and instabilities
The conference will be held at the Nantes Events Center, ideally situated at the heart of the city, with a wide range of accommodation options nearby. Information on hotel reservation will be available soon on the website of the conference.
Before the conference (April 14, 2015), a one-day course on Advanced polymeric materials will be offered to interested participants. Three complementary lectures will be given by world-class scientists in the field: Roland Keunings (Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium) on “Rheology and flow of polymer solutions and melts”; Prof. Francisco Chinesta (Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France) on “Complex flows of micro/nano structured fluids: reinforced polymer composites”; and Christophe Binetruy, Faurecia (Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France) on “Flows of simple and complex fluids in microstructures: reactive processing and novel composite materials”. The content of the courses will be illustrated by a visit on an industrial site of Airbus. Details of the short courses and registration information can be found at the conference web site.
We look forward to seeing you in Nantes.
