The 1st International Conference on Electrorheological Fluids and Magnetorheological Suspensions took place nearly 25 years ago. The 13th Conference (ERMR 2012), which will be held in Gazi University of Ankara, Turkiye on July 2-6, 2012, will continue the same tradition by providing an arena for researchers around the world to present their new research findings in these fields. In recent years, the researches and developments of ER/MR materials, devices and systems have significantly increased.
One of the unique features of ERMR Conferences is that they offer a wide range of issues from polymer chemistry to engineering applications of ER/MR materials.
The Congress will have ten topics covering almost all the aspects of ER and MR
The ERMR 2012 topics will include the following areas:
1.Synthesis, characterization and processing of novel ER and MR materials
2.Dynamics, chain and structure formation of MR and ER fluids
3.MR and ER elastomers ferrogels and their characterizations
4.Rheological techniques and measurements
5.Modeling and simulations of MR and ER fluids
6.Device development and control techniques
7.Applications of ER and MR fluids
The meeting will bring scientists and engineers in multidisciplinary areas together to explore the state-of-art technology and identify thrust area to be focused on. All oral presentations will be held in a single session to enhance the interactions between the scientists and engineers. The ERMR 2012 Conference will include plenary lectures by prominent leaders in the fields.
We invite you to submit your papers and participate in the ERMR 2012 Conference.
We are looking forward to see you in Ankara.
In addition to the technical program, we have prepared an active social program not only during the conference but also after, so that these optional trips to Istanbul or Cappadocia may also be an unforgettable for you and your family.
