of the Swiss Group of Rheology
May 5, 1999
"Rheology and Interfaces"
Scope of the meeting:
The relations between macrostructure and rheology of
multiphase fluids is of great importance in many
different applications ranging from food processing to
polymer blends compounding.
The scope of the meeting is to bring together people
from both academic and industrial backgrounds to
discuss the scientific and technologic aspects of flow
in multiphase systems.
The program will consist of two plenary lectures
given by prominent scientists in the field of polymer
research and four additional invited presentations.
The two plenary lectures will be given by
Dr. Leszek A. Utracki (Canada)
who will present an overview on
flow and mixing in polymer blends while
The meeting will be held at the Nestlé Research
EProf. Masao Doi (Japan)
will put more focus on modeling aspects
of flow understanding.
Four invited presentations will also be given by
industrial and academic researchers on related topics.
An open poster session will be proposed for people
attending the meeting. All those intending to
participate are encouraged to submit an abstract for
this poster presentation.
