Nordic Rheology Conference
Gothenburg, August 21-23, 2019

  SCOPE AND THEME

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.

 

  VENUE

The NRC will be held at the Chalmers Conference Centre in Gothenburg where also the AERC 2010 was held. The lecture halls are located around a central foyer where exhibitors will present the latest rheology instrumentation, posters will be displayed and coffee will be served.

 

  INVITED SPEAKERS

Professor Gerald Fuller will give the opening lecture at the conference. He is a well-known authority in the rheology community and an expert in interfacial rheology. His group at Stanford University studies flow behavior of complex soft materials. Read more at the Fuller Group web page.

 

  CALL FOR PAPERS

Presentations in all areas of rheology are welcome, both as oral and poster presentations. Presenters should send a maximum one-page abstract to the Editorial office by April 26, 2019. Further instructions will be posted during the autumn.
