Due to the worldwide situation about the COVID-19 and the last talk of “French president”, It is a pity for us to make a decision to postpone the dates of the YRD 2020 (initially scheduled in June 16-19- 2020).   Hence, we hope that the peak of COVID-19 will be released by the coming months. Owing the agenda of the conference center and many other conferences to be organized, I’m delighted to share with you the new dates of the “Young Rheologists days, YRD 2021” which will be held from 9-12 March 2021.

Besides, a new varied and updated social program will accompany the conference: gathering some social activities with visits to several industrial plants and regional institutions….

The main focus of this conference is to establish a discussion forum for the community of engineers and scientists in the rheology field cutting edge from food, blood, suspensions, cosmetics, polymer engineering, polymer rheology to soft Matter…..
