New dates of YRD 2021!

 

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Dear collegues and friends,

Dear YRD attendees,

It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you from all over the world at the international conference of Young Rheologists days 2021 to be held drom 06-09 July 2021. Initially scheduled in June 16-19, 2020 and postponed to those new dates owing the COVID-19 pandemic situation, I’ve been  deligthted to organize this conference in hybrid form consisting of both live performances  and remote presentations. I’m so glad to be able to enjoy this conference  with you here after this pandemic crisis.

For the first time, we aim at giving a more international dimension to this meeting, thanks to the privileged location of Giron (Jura) and the great support of the European Society of rheology (ESR) and the French Group of Rheology (GFR).

The main focus of this conference is to establish a discussion forum for the community of engineers and scientists in the rheology field. We aim at giving, for the first time, a more international dimension to our meeting. YRD conference will gather scientists and engineers who are working in the field of rheology. Indeed, rheologists from universities, research centers or industries will be able to report on the most recent advances in the field. 

To date, we have received more than 80 abstracts from France, Italy, Poland, Morocco, Romania, China, France, Israel, Portugal, Spain, Colombia, Tunisia, Canada, Spain, Germany, UK, Greece, USA, Switzerland. We have selected after review 60 presentations from PhD, post-doctoral fellows and engineers. Moreover, the program includes 5 renowned guest speakers for Plenary Lectures. Six Keynotes lectures for round tables will be held by eminent researchers from both the academic and and industrial world. The attractiveness of these lectures has led to a great interest in this conference; in the end, more than 100 participants are expected making this event a great success. The objective is to give to all applicants the opportunity to present their work and exchange with rheologists from a wide range of backgrounds and promote disccussions inside and out of conferences.

We hope that you will enjoy the scientific program and the charms of Giron and Jura region. At almost 1100 m altitude, the new YRD 2021will give you a special chance to enjoy the splendid Jura mountain chain , making it the first tourist destination of Auvergne-Rhone Alpes. Giron offers a wide variety of unspoiled natural landscapes alternating with rivers, magnificent lakes, alpine pastures and spruce forests.  Nonetheless, Jura region is also cities and villages with a rich heritage, renowned vineyards offering great varieties of wine, delicious cheeses, diverse crafts...  These numerous attractions make this region a popular destination for lovers of nature, snow, exploring and fine food and gastronomy. Besides, a varied social program will accompany the conference: hiking, private Jacuzzi,   visits of Lac Genin, Lac Nantua, Formagerie, INSA’s Rheology platform-Oyonnax…

On behalf of the Organizing committee, we would like to thank the YRD 2021 attendees, presenters and accompanying persons, involved institutions and the sponsors.

We wish you a memorable  YRD 2021 and Stay in Giron, France.
