    Annual European Rheology Conference (AERC2017)


    Annual European Rheology Conference 2017

    3 – 6 April 2017, Copenhagen, Denmark

    Abstract Submission & Registration are now open!

    The AERC meetings have seen an ever-growing number of delegates in the past years, and this year’s conference is expected to reach new heights.

    With a cross-disciplinary organizing committee, the meeting caters for rheologists from every field of the science,  from a variety of industrial applications to the topics of more academic interest.  This year, AERC2017 will be jointly organized with the 26th Nordic Rheology Conference. The Nordic conferences are organized annually, and offer an excellent platform for networking with old and new colleagues, and to newcomers to the field, thanks to its welcoming, informal and laid back atmosphere.

    Scientific Sessions:

    • Rheology of powders and granular material
    • Food and biorheology
    • Interfacial rheology
    • Micro and nanorheology, microfluidics
    • Gels and self-assembled systems
    • Suspensions and colloids
    • Solids, glasses, and composites
    • Polymer solutions and melts
    • Non-Newtonian fluid mechanics and fluid instabilities

    A rheology course will be organized before the conference, on 3rd April 2017, at the Technical University of Denmark. The venue can be easily reached using public transportation within approximately 40 minutes from the centre of Copenhagen.

    Professor Dimitris Vlassopoulos

    Soft Matter proudly sponsors this event: our Associate Editor Professor Dimitris Vlassopoulos will be delivering a poster prize.
