Oral presentations

- 60 minutes allotted for keynote speakers, including 10 minutes discussion
- 20 minutes oral presentations, including 5 minutes discussion

Poster sessions

Poster will be displayed during a dedicated session and throughout the conference.
Researchers showing a poster will have the opportunity to make a short presentation of their work (3 minutes) to the whole audience. The posters should be set up on Monday 18th November before the beginning of the conference.

Industrially oriented topics

A part of the program will be dedicated to strongly industrially oriented issues, supported by our industrial sponsors. The content of this special session has not been defined yet by the organizing committee, but might take the form of either a set of talks made by speakers from the industry, a round table or some late afternoon special lectures.

Official language

English will be the official language. Simultaneous interpretation will not be provided.

Conference proceedings

Abstracts from the oral and poster presentations will be included in a volume given out on site to all registered participants.
All contributors will be invited to submit a full paper after the conference to be published in a special issue of Journal of Non Newtonian Fluid Mechanics.
