April 17 – 20, 2018
We invite you to the joint Annual European Rheology Conference (AERC) and XV Meeting of the Italian Society of Rheology - SIR in Sorrento, Italy, 17-20 April 2018. We aim at organising a meeting for rheologists from all scientific fields, from academy to industry and government laboratories in a friendly, informal atmosphere to discuss and share ideas. The Italian Society of Rheology (SIR) meetings are organized biannually all around Italy and provide a welcoming environment, which makes the conferences an excellent platform for networking with old and new colleagues, including the newcomers to the field.
The joint AERC-SIR conferences will take place in the extraordinary landscape of the Sorrento coast where sea and mountain, deep valleys and citrus groves plateaux alternate. Not to mention the pleasures of the Italian cuisine with the renowned local specialties from the Campania region.
This year a short rheology course on “Particles, Active Matter, Confinement and Viscoelasticity: The Microfluidic Playground” will be organised in Naples from 16th to 17th April, and Pier Luca Maffettone will coordinate it. In addition to Pier Luca the lectures will be given by prof. Amy Shen from OIST Graduate University, Okinawa, and prof. Julia Yeomans from the University of Oxford.
Beside the conference anybody can enjoy the marvels of Sorrento coast from nature to culture, thermal spas, naturalistic walks and excursions to the famous nearby locations: Naples, Pompei, Ercolano, Ischia, Capri, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, etc.
