AERC 2009 is being organized by the INNFM (Wales) and the BSR in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. The aim of AERC 2009 is to contribute to the advancement of Rheology by bringing together interested researchers from Europe and the rest of the world, and bridging traditional themes with modern trends.
Following the tradition of previous European Rheology meetings, AERC 2009 will be a three day conference split into symposia that reflect mainstream or emerging areas of Rheology. There will be minisymposia on blends, copolymers and nanocomposites; process modelling; rheometry and beyond: advanced experimental methods; interfacial phenomena, surfactants and foams; suspensions and colloids; viscoplasticity, solids rheology; biopolymers, biorheology and food rheology; constitutive modelling; non-Newtonian fluid mechanics; computational modelling; flow-induced phase transitions and instabilities; industrial rheology and processing.
Cardiff is home to many national institutions including the National Museum of Wales and the much-admired Millennium Stadium. The city centre skyline is testimony to its heritage and ambition, with landmark buildings ranging from the ornate civic centre to the historic Cardiff Castle. Cardiff is well established as "Europe’s Youngest Capital" but its history dates back more than 2000 years to the Romans. It was once one of the busiest ports in the world, exporting the coal which fuelled the industrial revolution.
