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.

The Annual European Rheology Conference next April will be held in Cyberspace with you participating as an avatar. The Cyberspace Conference Centre will be specifically designed for the AERC, but you can already now try life as an avatar in a demo version of it. Go to the AERC web page where you will find instructions under “Platform”.

Due to virus related travel restrictions we will meet as avatars in cyberspace rather than physically. It will be almost as a normal conference and you will be walk around in the conference centre and choose session or interact with colleagues at the exhibition area and by a poster, but from a safe distance behind your computer screen.
Contributions from industrial case studies as well as academic studies are welcome, and the aim is a large gathering of persons interested in science, technology and applications within all areas of rheology.
Save the dates of April 13-14 and see the AERC web page for more information.
