Nordic Rheology Society

Rheology is defined as the science of the deformation and flow of matter, which means that rheology in some form enters almost every study of material properties. In the Nordic countries, rheological measurements have become standard techniques in both industrial and academic research. The Nordic Rheology Society has been formed as a meeting ground for engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists engaged in rheology in industry and academia.

Registration deadline approaching: Mid-Winter Meeting of the British Society of Rheology
The British Society of Rheology Mid-Winter Meeting will be held on the 18th and 19th Janua
The British Society of Rheology Mid-Winter Meeting will be held on the 18th and 19th January 2021, using Virtway Events online virtual platform.

*** The deadline for registration is 12pm (BST) on Monday 11th January ***

The theme of the meeting is "Recent advances in non-conventional rheometry”, and accepted abstracts encompass new approaches for measuring and controlling rheological properties of materials with relevance to a wide range of applications including manufacturing, healthcare, and polymer processing.
We have keynote presentations by Gerry Fuller (Stanford University), Gareth McKinley (MIT), Monica Oliveira (University of Strathclyde) and Charles Schroeder (University of Illinois).
Furthermore, our meeting includes several award lectures. These are the Gold Medal to John Hinch (University of Cambridge), the Annual Award to Daniel Read (University of Leeds) and the Vernon Harrison Award to Hugo Castillo Sanchez (University College London).
The full programme, and list of speakers, will be available on our website in due course.
Details of how to register can be found here
Registration for BSR members costs £10 and for Non BSR members costs £55. Please note that Non BSR Members are welcome to join the BSR at any time, for the cost of just £27.


AERC Plenary Speaker: Sébastian Manneville

We are delighted to start the new year by introducing the first plenary speaker to AERC 2021 –Sébastien Manneville. For more information see the AERC web site.
Sébastien Manneville is a professor in physics in Lyon. He received his basic physics training at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. After completing his PhD on time-reversed acoustics applied to flow velocimetry he continued with a post-doc at Boston University specializing in ultrasound imaging. In 2001, he joined the CNRS as a junior researcher in Bordeaux and 2006 he was appointed as a full professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. His research focuses on shear-induced instabilities in complex fluids and soft glassy materials as well as developing innovative tools for soft matter and rheology based on ultrasound.
The title of his plenary talk is: Yielding dynamics of soft glassy materials: stress overshoot, shear banding and avalanches
