The main purpose of the Final Conference is to highlight the Action's achievements to be disseminated to a wide audience, including relevant stakeholders. The main scientific topics of the Conference will be experimental methods for measuring fibre suspensions, rheological characterization of fibre suspensions, two-phase flow modeling of fibre suspensions.


Keynote speakers:
Tomas Vikstrom (Valmet AB, Sundsvall, SE) "Structural changes in the pulp and paper industry - Influences and direction on R&D"
Fredrik Lundell (Linné Flow Centre & Wallenberg Wood Science Center, Royal Institute of Technolog, Stockholm, SE) "Fibres and fibrils in shear and extension: inertia vs diffusion"
Greg Voth (Wesleyan University, Middletown, USA) "Measurements of rotation and alignment of fibers, spheres and disks in turbulent flow"
Pier Luca Maffettone (Universita' degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Naples, IT) "Dynamics and rheology of a dilute viscoelastic suspension of spheroids in an unbounded shear flow"
Bernhard Mehlig (Department of Physics, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, SE) Title to be announced

Interested participants are kindly requested to indicate their intention to participate in the Final Conference by sending an e-mail to before April 17, 2015 together with a tentative title of their proposed talk.

Accepted participants are requested to submit a 3-page abstract of their contribution, using the template available at the following link:
Deadline for abstract submission is May 15, 2015. Submitted abstracts will be published as Conference proceedings.

Registration for Action participants will be made through the e-COST system. Participants will be invited by Cristian Marchioli and the Grant Holder (CISM) through automatic e-mails generated by the system itself. Then recipients will have to accept/decline the invitation: if they accept, then they will need to register in the e-COST system in case.
