Informazioni Generali sull'evento

The University of Manchester is currently celebrating its 150th year. This meeting, held also by the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group (SMTG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Physics (IOP) and the British Society of Rheology (BSR), is part of a program of events to celebrate this occasion.

This meeting will focus on the dynamical properties of complex fluids and will bring together experimentalists, theoreticians and computer simulators. Sessions will include:

Dynamics of colloidal suspensions
Flow induced phase transitions
Liquid crystalline flows
Flow through porous media

The meeting will directly be followed a workshop on Colloid Rheology led by Professor John Brady (Caltech, USA).
This is another in the series of RSC SMTG free workshops and will take place from 2.0 – 5.0 pm on Friday, August 31.

A number of distinguished scientists from this country and from abroad have agreed to speak.
Among these are:

Professor John Brady (Caltech, USA)
Dr Christopher Lowe (Delft, The Netherlands)
Professor Jan Dhont (Jülich, Germany)
Dr Jorrit Mellema (Twente, The Netherlands)
Dr F Lequeux (France)
Professor Chris Care (Sheffield Hallam, UK)
Dr Julia Yeomans (Oxford)
Dr Patrick Warren (Unilever, Port Sunlight)
Dr Peter Olmsted (Leeds)

There is space for a limited number of further oral contributions.
Abstracts (under 500 words) are to be received by 15 July, 2001.

The AGMs of the British Society of Rheology and the RSC Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group will also be held during the meeting.
