  HIGHLIGHTS

NRC2024 abstract submission is open
We cordially invite you to attend the Nordic Rheology Conference 2024 (NRC2024) that will take place in Stavanger on May 29-31, 2024. The theme of the conference is 'Rheology for Science and Technology'. More information about the conference can be found on the NRC2024 webpage and in the NRC2024 flyer. You are welcome to submit abstracts of experimental and theoretical studies on all areas of rheology, including industrial case studies, by February 15. Upon acceptance of your abstract, you are cordially invited to submit a manuscript for publication in the Annual Transactions of the Nordic Rheology Society. Further instructions and a link to the NRC2024 abstract submission can be found here.
