After the great success of the 1st edition at Stony Brook University (USA), which attracted more than 400 delegates and the 2nd edition at FEUP University of Porto (Portugal) which attracted more than 300 delegates, the 3rd edition will take place at University of Bologna (Italy) from 4-7th July 2017.
This conference series began in 1985 and the overall goal remains the same: To bring together researchers working in the frontier areas of a variety of separation technologies.
We hope to attract researchers working in adsorption, absorption, bioseparations, chromatography, crystallization, distillation, membranes, novel technologies, etc. The focus will be on new separation media, new separation techniques and new technologies breaking out. These aspects are key to the challenges appearing in carbon capture and sequestration, desalination, and increasing application needs in bioseparations among others. The issues of sustainability, energy consumption and process intensification will be ever present in all of our deliberations.
A very large fraction of the current research in separations involves membranes and adsorbents. New separation media being discovered or developed impact both areas. Therefore in this conference there will be significant attention to the developments in separation media and the role of modeling in such activity. The nature of the separation device and the separation technique employed is crucial to the exploitation of the novel separation media. What novel separation technologies are breaking out is another area of importance.
We expect high and continued interest in the conference on Separations Technology since it is such a crucial part of a number of major industrial processes around the world.

FRAMEWORK AND OBJECTIVES This workshop aims to explore the recent innovations in polymer processing and advanced techniques to succeed in producing new materials, complex parts and controlled morphologies. The current tendency is to complexify the design and properties of new polymeric materials which can not be obtained only by simple formulation. Innovative processing is then one way towards advanced materials. This two days workshop will particularly focus on additive manufacturing, micro-devices and nano-processing, high speed processing and advanced extrusion that enable better control of material structures. The format of the workshop is designed to foster dialogue and exchange between leading academic scientists and experts from industry, who will give their understanding/perspective in the field of polymer processing. This workshop is open to engineers and researchers from academia and industry.
FLOWING MATTER 2017 Data Evento: 23/01/2017
(Evento Terminato) Luogo: Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP)
Following the previous successful Flowing Matter Conferences (December 2014 and January 2016), Flowing Matter 2017 will take place again in Porto, Portugal.
Flowing matter lies at the crossroads between industrial processes, fundamental physics, engineering and Earth Sciences. Depending on the microscopic interactions, an assembly of molecules or of mesoscopic particles can flow like a simple Newtonian fluid, deform elastically like a solid or behave in a complex manner. When the internal constituents are active, as for biological entities, one generally observes complex large-scale collective motions. The phenomenology is further complicated by the invariable tendency of fluids to display chaos at the large scales or when stirred strong enough. A fundamental understanding of flowing matter is still missing impeding scientific progress, effective control on industrial processes, as well as accurate predictions of natural phenomena. Flowing matter frequently presents a tight coupling between small-scale structures and large-scale flow urging for a unifying approach. The Action will coordinate existing research efforts into a synergetic plan of collaborations and exchanges to develop an innovative multi-scale approach able to encompass the traditional micro-, meso-, and macro-scales descriptions. Breakthroughs in the understanding of flowing matter will impact on fundamental key scientific issues, such as the glass, the elasto-plastic and the jamming transitions, as well as industrial applications including health, energy, cosmetics, detergents, food, paints, inks, oil and gas.
The conference will cover the three main topics of the COST Action: complex fluids, active matter and complex flows. You are welcome to submit contributions in any of these three areas. Contributions that cover interdisciplinary aspects, i.e. that cross two or more areas are particularly encouraged.

Forty years ago, with the arrival of Giuseppe Marrucci and, afterwards, of Domenico Acierno and Giuseppe Titomanlio at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Palermo, the little story of polymer research in Palermo begun. Almost without noticing it, and always with the same enthusiasm, these first forty years have passed, years where the research fields have continuously enlarged and diversified in full accordance with the international research trends: from rheological works (in particular the work focused on the elongational flow), to processing, polymer blends and LCPs, from thermomechanical and photoxidative degradation to recycling (one the first groups active in this field), from polymer-radiations interactions to polymer solidification kinetics, from composites, to nanocomposites, biodegradable polymers and tissue engineering scaffolds. In time, collaboration with prestigious national and international research groups helped us to grow. A work roughly summarized in several books, hundreds of papers and meeting presentations, many plenary lectures and keynotes which testify the esteem and the affection of the scientific community. Esteem and affection shown also by the point that the Group was chosen to organize several (and crowded!) national and international meetings (even though this may be due especially to Palermo’s charm!). However, the same affection is shown by all those Companies – especially from Sicily - with whom we had fruitful and interesting collaboration and that have funded a significant part of our research activity. After forty years, those first young guys, who enthusiastically started studying those “strange things” which rheology and viscoelasticity are, are going to retire, and others, young and less young, with the same enthusiasm, are going to start the path of more forty years. We wanted to utilize this symbolic date to gather all those who guided us and stood by us in these decades: let us celebrate together and remember years of hard work, but always pleasant and made glad by many friends.
Week of Rheology Data Evento: 17/08/2009
(Evento Terminato) Luogo: Reykjavik, Iceland
Rheo Iceland 2009 combines 2 conferences and 2 courses to "The Week of Rheology": the Rilem International Symposium on Rheology of Cement Suspensions such as fresh Concrete and the 18th Nordic Rheology Conference on suspension rheology. The development of rheology of cement based materials has been substantial during the last decade, as the building industry has welcomed it to be a long needed solution for different conditions. There are always new dispersing additives coming on the market, or for that reason different types of materials, like shrinkage reducing admixture (SRA).
Stabilizers are a good example for the need of rheology as they have even been named viscosity enhancing agents, but some even reduce viscosity (or at least the plastic viscosity) as others might have no significant influence or even as expected, increase the viscosity. The Kyoto protocol might greatly influence the quality of cement in nearest future, in particular regarding the cement admixture interaction problems. By combining the two conferences the participants will have unique opportunitiy to explore different specific subjects since the Rilem participants will have access to the NRC conference and vice versa. Both conferences will share the invited lectures during the opening lectures. The conferences will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland
The International Symposium on Food Rheology and Structure (ISFRS) is hosted by the Institute of Food Science and Nutrition at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) in Zürich/Switzerland every three years. The 5th International Symposium on Food Rheology and Structure (ISFRS 2009) will be held on June 15-18, 2009. The meeting is focusing on the rheology and structure of food materials from the molecular to the macroscopic level and the complexity that arises from material properties, engineering, and food quality and perception. An overview of the state of the art and a detailed focus on recent problem areas are given by the opening lecture and several keynote lectures that are presented by wellknown scientists. Oral and poster contributions are organized in individual symposium sessions grouped around the introduced research topics in food rheology and structure. All papers presented at the 2009 meeting will be published in the conference proceedings that will be available at the opening of the symposium in print and CD formats. A special issue of Applied Rheology is devoted to the 2009 symposium. Proposed contributions are subject to evaluation by the Scientific Committee and to peer review.

Dear Colleague, On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to invite you to participate in the 9th European Conference on Liquid Crystals and related topics, to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, July 2- 6, 2007. This conference is intended to provide a forum for all those who are active in any field of Liquid Crystals Science and Technology, and related topics, to meet and exchange ideas. In spite of the European character of the ECLC, there is no restriction on the attendance of delegates from all over the world. Young scientists are strongly encouraged to participate. The ECLC used to be a winter conference. We chose to organize the ECLC 2007 in summer, instead, to increase the time gap from the ILCC and to take advantage of the fact that sun, not snow, is the main ingredient of Portuguese climate. Lisbon is known for its luminosity; the light, the unique atmosphere and the climate offer a marvellous environment to make the ECLC 2007 a fruitful and memorable event. The Scientific Program will include an opening lecture, a number of plenary, keynote and invited lectures by distinguished scientists highlighting selected topics and new developments in the field, and contributed oral and poster communications. An exhibition area will be provided for LC related companies to display and demonstrate their products and the latest technical advances in the field. Social and cultural events, as well as a conference excursion and dinner, will be arranged for participants and for accompanying persons. I am looking forward to meeting you in Lisbon. Prof. Assis F. Martins Conference Chairman

Il convegno si occupa dell’applicazione della reologia nel settore ceramico; nel corso dell’evento sarà presentato il manuale tecnico “Reologia applicata alla ceramica”. Dopo l’uscita nel 2003 del Manuale “Colore, pigmenti e colorazione in ceramica”, Società Ceramica Italiana, in collaborazione con ACIMAC, ha realizzato un nuovo Volume dal titolo “Reologia applicata alla ceramica (Teoria e pratica)” che fa il punto su una tematica tecnica di grande attualità. Gli aspetti reologici risultano di grande interesse nel settore ceramico, ma troppo spesso non vengano affrontati con le dovute metodologie d’indagine. In questo senso il Manuale vuole rimarcare a tutti gli operatori del settore l’importanza di inquadrare correttamente una materia così significativa nel contesto produttivo ceramico, fornendo tutti gli strumenti (teorici e pratici) per un approfondimento culturale, per la ricerca di laboratorio e per la corretta soluzione dei problemi industriali. In occasione della presentazione del volume, Società Ceramica Italiana e ACIMAC hanno ritenuto importante procedere ad alcuni approfondimenti specifici inerenti alcuni degli argomenti trattati nel Manuale. Alcuni degli autori ed Esperti del settore parleranno dell’importanza che la reologia riveste nella pratica quotidiana, sia nel campo della ricerca, sia nello studio e sviluppo di nuove produzioni ceramiche, sia nella gestione e nel controllo del processo produttivo. Il nuovo Manuale “Reologia applicata alla ceramica” tiene conto e affronta tutti questi aspetti.

La Società Italiana di Reologia ha tra i suoi scopi sociali la promozione delle attività nel campo della reologia, favorendo lo sviluppo di contatti e collaborazioni tra le istituzioni universitarie e la realtà industriale. Uno degli strumenti più proficui per raggiungere questo scopo è rappresentato dal Convegno Nazionale di Reologia che costituisce l’occasione di incontro tra ricercatori e tecnici provenienti sia dal mondo industriale che da quello accademico, operanti a livello nazionale nel settore della reologia. Il Convegno Nazionale, inoltre, costituisce un momento di confronto particolarmente utile per i giovani ricercatori che hanno la possibilità di discutere e presentare i risultati delle ricerche condotte nelle varie sedi. Il principale obiettivo di questo incontro è quello di mostrare il livello scientifico raggiunto nei vari settori della reologia in Italia, favorendo l’integrazione tra diverse tematiche. La SIR ha da tempo “istituzionalizzato” questo momento di dialogo organizzando tale evento con cadenza biennale. Quest’anno la sede scelta per il IX Convegno Nazionale è Zambrone, una località sulla costa calabrese situata ad 8 km da Tropea , dal 20 al 23 settembre 2006.

Il convegno, organizzato dal consorzio PROCOAT, con la partecipazione della Società Italiana di Reologia, è dedicato alla reologia dei prodotti vernicianti ed è indirizzato ai tecnici ed ai ricercatori che si occupano dei problemi connessi alla produzione ed all’applicazione di pitture e vernici su scala industriale. Nel caso dei prodotti vernicianti la reologia svolge un ruolo importante, e spesso determinante, in diversi stadi del processo produttivo e nelle fasi di applicazione e filmazione del prodotto. Dall’uso di adeguati protocolli sperimentali e dal confronto dei risultati con approcci e modelli disponibili in letteratura è possibile derivare criteri razionali per la formulazione del prodotto, per il controllo del processo di dispersione di pigmenti e cariche, della miscelazione o della diluizione di paste concentrate, per la risoluzione dei problemi di trasporto, per lo studio della cinetica di indurimento di sistemi reticolanti. Il convegno vuole contribuire a favorire l’interazione tra il mondo universitario e quello industriale, ed un’efficace integrazione reciproca delle conoscenze scientifiche con le esigenze tecnologiche ed applicative, in conformità con le linee di indirizzo del consorzio PROCOAT.
Nel campo dei materiali termoplastici lo stampaggio a iniezione rappresenta uno dei processi più significativi.

Every four years, rheologists around the world gather together to report, discuss and celebrate progress made in the global community of rheology. Next upcoming conference will be in Seoul, Korea in 2004. The contents of most talks we'll have in Seoul may be largely the same as before and most of the faces of the participants will be just as familiar. But the theme should and will be a little different and a bit more future-directed, since as we all know, the ICR2004 will be the first global rheology meeting of the 21st century. Perhaps the theme and tones that better reflect the direction of our civilization will be more pertinent.Authors are invited to submit abstracts (each not exceeding 300 words) for either oral presentations or poster presentations. Abstracts should be submitted to the Congress Secretariat no later than September 30, 2003. Registration can be done on line. More information in the offcial web site.
The Meeting is open to all scientists and engineers conducting research or interested in the fields of rheology and fluid mechanics. The program will consist of 2 plenary lectures & oral contributions. Plenary lectures: Dr. K. Valanis (Endochronics/U. Portland) Prof. A. Beris (U. Delaware)
Special emphasis will be given to the following fields of research: rheology and rheometry -polymer melts and solutions -structure and dynamics of polymers -colloids and suspensions -molecular modeling -numerical simulations -experimental, theoretical & computational fluid dynamics
The form of the conference allows invited presentations as well as contributions from participants. Contributed papers for oral and poster presentation will be chosen on the basis of scientific interest and homogeneity with the conference topics. Discussion leaders, who are experts themselves in the field, will direct discussion towards constructive conclusions.
The total number of participants including speakers will be restricted to a maximum of 100 people.
Proposed papers title and short abstract (250 words) are requested.
International Journals agreed for the publication of the selected manuscripts
Per migliorare le caratteristiche e le prestazioni a comportamento dei materiali polimerici è spesso necessario miscelarli con materiali diversi quali ad esempio cariche o fibre.
Lo scopo di questa giornata studio è di offrire una panoramica rigorosa, ma al tempo stesso non eccessivamente specialistica, sulle principali aree tematiche relative a questo argomento. Verranno discussi aspetti di base quali la termodinamica, la reologia e i meccanismi di dispersione. Ampio spazio verrà lasciato inoltre ai risvolti applicativi come ad esempio macchine per il compound, software di simulazione, formulazioni rinforzate, esperienze pratiche. Alcuni contributi, di esperti stranieri del settore, saranno in inglese. Copia su CD delle presentazioni sarà inviata ai partecipanti.

Poitou, Pr. D. Quemada, Pr. J.F Tassin and Pr. H. Van damme. A half-day will be dedicated to the visit of TIMIMOUN and its surroundings.
A short intensive, postexperience levelcourse on Process Rheology will take place at the University of Strathclyde. This will include the principles of rheology, both in general and for specific fluids, and the molecular and structural parameters governing the non Newtonian flow. The objectives of the course are to provide a thorough understanding of the mechanism of flow encountered in processing non Newtonian fluids, the techniques available for characterising these fluids, and the consenquences of fluid rheology in the design of process machinery and the perormance of the final product.
I fenomeni di adesione giocano un ruolo importante in vari settori tecnologici e industriali quali verniciatura, rivestimenti organici, assiematura strutturale, assiematura componenti elettronici e cosi via.
L'adesione può essere suddivisa fondamentalmente in due categorie: rivestimenti su substrati (esempio verniciatura), incollaggi.
In questo workshop sono trattati entrambi gli aspetti, sono forniti elementi utili per comprendere i fattori che influenzano l'adesione e, soprattutto, sono illustrate alcune modalità per migliorare l'adesione in varie situazioni.
The next GFR annual conference (38th annual GFR meeting) will be held in Brest 15-17 October 2003. The topic is "Rheology and physical-chemistry of formulated materials". The aim of the conference is to show the complementarity between the rheological approach and the physical and chemical characterizations in designing formulated materials. The objective is obviously to encourage and to develop exchanges and collaborations between academic scientists and centres of industrial studies (polymers, chemistry, biomedical, food science, paintings, chemical engineering…) about these problems. Indeed, the topics chosen for this meeting are of interest for the rheologist who wants to better understand the links between the physical and chemical interactions and the macroscopic behaviours but also for those who are in charge of formulating a compound in order to obtain a given property. We want this meeting to foster exchanges between academic and industrials communities around the following types of materials : Polymer solutions and gels Emulsions and foams Paste and suspensions Polymer blends, filled polymers and nanocomposites Filled elastomers
Systems can be considered from various angles : theory (physical as well as numerical), experiments (including additional techniques to rheometry)
The Conference will be specifically interested in receiving reports on Interdisciplinar researches relating Physics with other Sciences such as Biology, Chemistry, Information Science, Medicine, etc or relating different Physics areas. In other words, we are specially (but not exclusivelly) interested in reports applying the techniques, the training, and the culture of physics to research areas usually associated with other scientific and engineering disciplines.

The conference will be held at the Polonia Institute campus beautifully situated at a limestone hill nearby Vistula river. The place located just midway between downtown Cracow and the international airport (5 km from each site) can easily be reached by public transportation or by car. Its exceptionally scenic location inside a park, specific microclimate and isolation from the city creates a unique environment for a successful scientific event. The campus is managed by the Polonia Institute of the Jagiellonian University.
Accommodation for more than 150 people (single, double and triple rooms, each with bathroom) can be found in the hotel section of the campus. There is also a large conference room fully equipped (about 180 seats) and a number of smaller conference rooms for additional 200 people. Next to the auditorium one can find a charming coffee-bar called Lennon, an ideal place for coffee breaks. It should be mentioned that the hotel section and the lecture rooms are located in the same building complex, which facilitates the transfer of people in case when parallel sessions are needed. Due to exceptional atmosphere more than 20 conferences take place at the campus each year. Within the campus, just five minutes walk from the hotel, there is a restaurant U Ziyada located in a former castle, famous for its fine food and marvellous panoramic view over the Vistula valley and the Tatra mountains. The restaurant can host simultaneously more than 200 people. Both the welcome party, breakfasts and lunches will be served there. Additionally, in the castle cellars one can find a romantic cafeteria just inviting for informal scientific discussions. Additional hotel rooms located in the castle should be available soon.
The Conference fee is estimated to be about
$ 700 (regular fee) $ 400 (accompanying persons)
this special package price will include four night accommodation (within the campus in fully equipped rooms, each with bathroom), welcome party, social events, breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks, snacks during poster sessions and all conference materials. There will be a certain number of reduced fees available for students and scientists from post-communist countries. For those who chose to stay in top quality hotels (downtown area, 15 minutes by taxi) the costs will be about $ 200 higher. Early booking of these hotel rooms, assisted by the organisers, is advised due to a great number of tourists visiting Cracow at the conference time.
Poland possesses presently a status of an EU associated country and no visa is required for citizens of most European and overseas countries. The immigration formalities at Cracow international airport both by arrival and departures take no longer than a few minutes. Cracow has direct flight to Frankfurt, London, Paris, Rome, Vienna, Zurich, Copenhagen, Tel Aviv, New York, and Chicago. There are also many local connections with Warsaw international airport. Similarly, Cracow has convenient train connections with Berlin, Moscow, Prague, Vienna, Leipzig, Kiev, Bratislava, Budapest, Frankfurt etc. Coming by car is equally simple since the major highway Cracow-Katowice-Berlin (A4) approaches the conference place as close as 3 km. Banking system is well developed, one can find international bank branches everywhere in downtown Cracow, major credit cards are accepted both in shops, restaurants and hotels. Prices in Cracow, especially for gasoline, restaurants food, souvenirs, are 20 % lower than in most European cities. Cracow is known by its moderate climate, especially in late summer when the conference is to be held. The temperature varies between 18-25 degrees Celsius at that time and there is usually little rain. Last not least, Cracow is the cultural capitol of Poland and there are many cultural events at the conference time, e.g., the Organ Music Festival in nearby Tyniec Abbey, Music in Old Cracow Festival comprising more than 20 concerts usually held in various historical places etc. Cracow also can serve as an ideal basis for sight seeing tours, for example, to the nearby Wieliczka salt mine (one of the oldest in Europe) Tatra Mountains etc. The organisers will be hapyy to assist in booking these trips.

Questo Convegno quindi non è frutto di casualità o di improvvisazione, ma è una tappa significativa di un percorso più ampio. Un rilievo particolare e un ringraziamento vivo e non rituale vanno dati alla Società Ceramica Italiana e all'IRTEC-CNR di Faenza: senza la loro collaborazione infatti il Convegno Nazionale di Reologia sarebbe risultato impoverito nei suoi contenuti. Non è un caso pertanto che la prima giornata dei lavori sia interamente dedicata ai risvolti e alle applicazioni della Reologia nel settore ceramico. La ricerca di punti di contatto e di applicazioni ai materiali e ai processi di rilevanza industriale è un indirizzo che la SIR ha già da tempo intrapreso e che perseguirà con maggior forza anche nel prossimo futuro: il 7° Convegno Nazionale di Reologia è una testimonianza importante di questa linea di azione

Colloidal dispersions are important to a wide range of industries. The rheological properties of dispersions affect manufacturability and end-use. The rheology of a formulation also gives an indication of the colloidal state and interactions.
Target audience: Practitioners but non-experts. Expect some colloid expertise but no great theoretical background. Colloid scientists who want to learn more about rheology and vice versa. Formulators and industrial scientists interested in product-process interactions. PhD students.
Provide a basic understanding of rheology as related to powder suspensions Keep the industry informed of the latest innovations in rheological measurement techniques
The workshop is primarily of interest to technicians and engineers working in the areas of product formulation, quality and process control within the ceramic sectors. Participation in these workshops will increase rheological understanding and also provide a significant insight into how rheology can be used to enhance product performance in manufacture and end use. No previous knowledge of rheology is required, since the various topics will be treated at a basic level. Furthermore, the selected case studies will be realistic industrial situations presented by technical people. The workshop will include lectures, case studies and laboratory demonstrations on common rheological instrumentation and will take place over 2 full days, commencing at 9.00 am and concluding at 5.00 pm. See overleaf for details. This event is kindly sponsored by DTI (Department of Trade and Industry).
PRICE Financial support from DTI allows the attendance of delegates at the special price of:
Standard price: £150 per delegate CERAM member’s price: £100 per delegate
Due to the limited number of places available it is highly advisable to book in advance. If the workshop is overbooked, CERAM reserves the right to nominate places.

The aim of this session is to bring together industrial and academic researchers in a dialogue that will review the value of rheology in an integrated approach to product and process design for structured materials. The development and manufacture of materials where flow characteristics and microstructural properties play a significant role in the value and function of the product is undoubtedly one of the most challenging and fast growing areas in Chemical Engineering. Inherently, rheologists are now intimately involved in food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, agricultural, specialty polymers and coatings industries. This is an exciting climate of refreshing opportunities and new challenges for the global rheology community. In this light, we envisage that the seminars and subsequent discussions will generate inspiration and clarity of purpose for the start of a new millenium of rheology research. Three highly topical keynote lectures will be given under this session title (topics and speakers to be confirmed) throughout the Congress. We invite you to submit a contribution, either for oral presentation or for the related poster sessions. The deadline for abstracts is 30 September 2000.

The aim of the school is to interest young researchers into the field of Rheology and Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics by helping to bridge the gap between the available theoretical tools and the existing problems of a mathematical nature in industry and academia
The Conference was a special one, since it was dedicated to Professor Andreas Acrivos, one of the most influential chemical engineers of the last 50 years, on the occasion of his retirement from the City College of the City University of New York, where he held the A. Einstein Chair at the Levich Institute.
Professor Acrivos' research interests lie in the general areas of Applied Mathematics, Newtonian and non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, Transport Phenomena and, currently, in the rheology of concentrated suspensions and the study of the effective properties of two-phase materials.
He has published more than 180 papers in well-reputed journals, and has graduated a large number of Ph.D. students who, in their majority, have become leading scientists and engineers.
His academic family includes more than 400 members.
He has received a number of distinguished awards, which include election to the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the U.S. Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The meeting was attended by over 100 participants, out of which 30 were former students of Professor Acrivos or members of his academic family.
They had been invited by the HSR and participated in the Conference with invited talks.
The program included also plenary lectures, oral presentations and a poster session, on topics which covered all areas of the general theme of Rheology: Polymer melts and solutions, colloids and suspensions, molecular modeling and simulations, and experimental, theoretical, and computational fluid dynamics.
A complete list of participants, as well as the final program of the Conference is posted.
The Abstracts of the presentations given in the Conference were compiled in a Book, which is also posted. Extended versions of some of the papers presented in the Conference have been submitted for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics (JNNFM), which is expected to appear within the year.
The Organizing and Scientific Committees of the Conference are grateful to Professor Ken Walters, editor of JNNFM, for providing this opportunity in honor of Professor Acrivos. In addition to the Scientific Program, the Social Program was also interesting.
This included a tour to the Archaeological Site of Olympia, a reception by the ICE/HT-FORTH Director and Researchers followed by dinner, and the Formal Conference Dinner on June 13th, where HSR and Professor Acrivos celebrated his birthday.
During the Conference, commemorative plaques were awarded to Professor Acrivos by the Vice Rector of the University of Patras (Professor C. Vayenas) and the Director of ICE/HT-FORTH (Professor A. Payatakes).
The Joint Conference of Italian, Austrian and Slovenian Rheologist foolowed the tradition of the previous National Conference on Rheology, which have been organized every year by Rheotech and the Italian Group of Rheology. As in the past, this Conference was essentially devoted to bring together accademic and industrial researchers from different fields of recognized relevance with the expectation that they will learn from one another and discover ways to work together synergistically. At the same time, this Joint Conference represented the natural continuation of the Rheoworkshops which have been held every year within the Alpe-Adria frame. At the closing session of the 5 Alpe-Adria Rheoworkshop (Novo mesto, May 28-29 1997), it was suggested that Trieste would be the venue for the 1998 meeting and this is another reason why both councils of Rheotech and the Italian Group of Rheology decided to organized the next national Conference in a form suitable to favour the scientific exchange and to consolidate the international experience and role of the National Groups, in accordance with the spirit of the European Society of Rheology.
The scientific program included oral and poster communications on various topics of fondamental and pratical interest together with an equipment exhibition. More than 60 scientists from 6 countries attended this meeting and contributed to its success.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I wish to espress our gratitude to all the individuals and organizations that have contributed to the success of the Conference. In particular, I wish to acknowledge the contribution of Eniricerche and University of Trieste for their financial support.
The next Conference will be organized by the Italian Society of Rheology, which gathers the inheritages of Rheotech and of the Italian Group of Rheology, with the cooperation of other national societies of the Southern Europe, and will take place in September 1999 in Calabria.
