Adhesion and Friction: Simulation, Experiment, Applications
Nov 13 – Nov 16 all-day

Adhesion is a phenomenon that plays an important role in many technical applications as well as in biological systems and medical applications. Many aspects of this phenomenon are still not well understood. The workshop is intended to provide an intensive exchange of information on the state of research on the rapidly developing area of “adhesion and friction”, whereby “friction” also means “internal friction” (and thus adhesion of elastomers). Invited are representatives of physically and mechanically oriented research as well as representatives of the fields of application – in mechanical engineering, biology and medicine. The targeted applications are adhesion both on the macroscopic level and on the scale of cells (which is of great importance, for example, in cancer research) and even on the scale of individual molecules

Electrochemical Methods in Corrosion Research 2018
Jul 22 – Jul 27 all-day

EMCR is an international conference about corrosion electrochemistry, held in various countries since 1982. The single-session format means you can catch all the presentations and not miss out on anything. The whole event is held at a single venue along with social events and accommodation, giving you plenty of time to get to know others in your field.

See further details on the webpage of the conference.

90-th Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology
Oct 14 – Oct 18 all-day

The Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology is held in mid-October. The meetings ordinarily last three to four days and are open to both members and non-members. Every effort is made to stimulate and encourage fruitful discussion during the technical sessions, with 25 minutes normally allotted to the presentation and discussion of each paper. There are normally no more than four simultaneous sessions, and the program includes plenary lectures, special symposia, informal evening discussions, and instrument exhibits. A banquet is held to honor the recipients of the Society’s awards: the Bingham Medal, the Journal of Rheology Publication Award, and the Distinguished Service Award, all for outstanding contributions to rheology. The Annual Meeting for those years during which an International Congress of Rheology occurs (2004, 2008, etc.) is held early in the following year (except when the ICR is held in the United States).
