The Brazilian Society of Rheology invites you to participate in the XVIIIth International Congress on Rheology.

In view of the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil and in rest of the world, the Organizing Committee of ICR 2020 understood that it would be impossible to hold the ICR 2020 in person, as previously planned.

A first attempt to accommodate the pandemic effects was made when we postponed the event to December 2020. However, uncertainties remain, and in view of this rather unusual situation we realized that the only safe decision to make is to change to the virtual format.

We understand that this change will alter the face of the event. However, the dissemination of new ideas, research results, and exhibitors information will be maintained.

The Congress will include plenary lectures and keynote lectures by eminent rheologists, contributed oral presentations, and a virtual poster session. Two short courses will be offered.

The International Congress on Rheology will be partnering with The Society of Rheology for the presentation of the 2020 Bingham Medal to Ole Hassager and 2020 Metzner award to Arezoo M. Ardekani. The Bingham Medal plenary lecture and Metzner keynote lecture will be presented as part of the technical program.

The 2019 Walters Award will be presented to Manuel Alves and Francisco Pimenta at ICR 2020. An award lecture will be included as part of the technical program.

We hope that we can receive you all in Rio some other time, as soon as things get back to normal, and then it will be our pleasure to introduce you to the wonderful attractions of Rio de Janeiro.
