Workshop on“Polymers in fast flows”

28-31 July, 2019 – Anacapri (Capri, Italy)

The workshop took place from the 28th to the 31th of July 2019 in Anacapri, in the beautiful island of Capri.

The workshop aimed at discussing recent advances on our understanding of fast flows of unentangled and entangled polymers, for which a comprehensive molecular theory does not yet exist.

The format included invited and contributed (oral and poster) presentations and ample time for formal and informal discussion.


This workshop (co-sponsored by SoftComp) was organized by Prof. Giovanni Ianniruberto, (Dipartimento di Ingegneria chimica, dei Materiali e della Produzione industrial, Università Federico II, Napoli), Prof. Evelyne van Ruymbeke (Bio- and Soft-Matter, Université Catholique de Louvain), and Prof. Dimitris Vlassopoulos (Department of Materials Science and Technology, University of Crete).
