Informazioni Generali sull'evento

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).
