The inaugural meeting of the WA branch of the Australian Society of Rheology was held in Perth in NOember last year, with the objective of drawing together the rheology community in the state.  This one day seminar on 17th November covered a wide range of materials processing applications. Keynote lectures were given on flow of mineral slurries (Professor Paul Slatter, RMIT), rheometry of mixtures (Andrew Chryss, CSIRO) and characterising materials for medical applications (Dr Michael Glinsky, CSIRO CEO Science Leader). Below is a photo of the approximately 40 attendees.

The Korean Society of Rheology invites you to participate in the 6th Korean-Australian Rheology Conference that will be held in Daejeon, Korea from 25th to 27th of September, 2011. This conference will provide an international forum to showcase the rheological researches in Korea, Australia, and the Asia-Pacific region. The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform for the reporting of the latest results concerning issues related to various aspects of the rheological and flow properties of materials. All scientists and engineers interested in rheology and related area are invited to participate in this conference.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts (not exceeding 200 words) for either oral or poster presentations. Abstract should be sent to the Conference Secretariat no later than May 31, 2011 via e-mail. We only plan to publish a booklet of abstracts but we encourage participants to submit a manuscript of the paper so that it can be considered for publishing in the Korea-Australia Rheology Journal



The conference will be divided into two parallel sessions over the two days (26th and 27th). Contributions to the following topics will be welcomed:


-   Polymer Processing

-   Experimental Rheology

-   Materials Processing

-   Computational Rheology

-   Micro/Nano Rheology

-   Suspensions and Colloids

-   Food Rheology

-   Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics

-   Solid Mechanics

-   Polymer Melts/Solutions

-   General Rheology




Abstract (not exceeding 200 words): May 31, 2011

Notice of Acceptance: June 30, 2011

Pre-Registration: July 31, 2011
