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.

We are happy to present Professor Alain Dufresne as speaker at NRC 2019 next august. This award winning researcher has published a large amount of peer-reviewed papers within the field of the processing and characterization of renewable nanocomposites. He got a top 300-position as one of the most cited researchers in materials science and engineering in 2016. Since 2003 he holds a position as professor at Grenoble INP, and he has also been visiting Professor at UFRJ and Embrapa Fortaleza (Brazil), and UKM (Malaysia). During the conference he will speak about rheological properties and nano-cellulose. The NRC 2019 will be held in Gothenburg on August 21-23, 2019.

Gerald Fuller to NRC 2019
Professor Gerald Fuller is well known in the rheology community and is a recognized authority for most in interfacial rheology and a Bingham Medal Awardee. Many have heard his interesting lectures in interfacial rheology, novel techniques and bio-related applications of complex fluids. Gerry, as he is known to us, leads the Fuller Research Group at Stanford University studying flow behavior of complex soft materials. He is also a frequent guest at international conferences and we have previously met him at the NRC 2011 in Helsinki. As a previous president of the Society of Rheology (US) and of the International Committee of Rheology he has contributed much to international networking and helped starting several national societies throughout the world.
