Microbes-on-chip Workshop

Dear all,

Please join us during the workshop “Microbes-on-chip : microtechnologies for the study, use or detection of microorganisms” on October the 30th 2020. As a consequence of new sanitary restrictions the event will be held on line with LIVE Q&A sessions.

In the context of emerging diseases linked to microbes (COVID-19 health crisis, antibiotic resistance in bacteria or neglected tropical diseases) new tools are required to accelerate the discovery of new treatments and the development of tests and multiplexed detection systems that are fast, sensitive, low-cost and widely available. This workshop aims at giving an overview of the potential use of microtechnologies and microfluidics to meet these challenges.

A first session will be organized around the detection and diagnostics of SARS-COV-2 and other pathogens using microfluidic devices. Experts in the medical field will provide their point of view on the needs for technological innovation in clinical practice. The second session will be focused on the biophysics and mechanobioloy of microbes, providing aspects of fundamental research for understanding the underlying physical and biological phenomena that play a role in the development of these organisms (see attached).

We invite all students and post-docs working in the field to submit an abstract for a short oral presentation before October the 15th 2020.

You can find a preliminary program, and information regarding registration and abstract submission at:

Registration is free but mandatory.

ICTAM 2020, Thematic sessions “Smart actuating system”, Abstract submission

Dear colleagues,

As you probably know, the 25th International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (ICTAM2020) will be held in Milan, Italy, August 23-28, 2020.

We have been asked to co-chair the Thematic Session on Smart Actuating Systems – FS07. This title encompasses a wide variety of disciplinary fields whose link is to take advantage of a mechanism (mechanical, biological, physicochemical …) for smart actuation; that it is done in a natural environment or in the laboratory. The keywords are: bio-inspired actuation, soft-matter based actuation, microfluidic-based actuation, smart interfaces, soft robotics, 4-D printing, smart materials, advanced manufacturing, smart micro/nano-system…

It is thus our pleasant duty to encourage acknowledged experts in this field to contribute to the Congress. Accordingly, we write to encourage you to submit a paper, to be presented in either a Lecture Session (occupying a 20-minute slot, including discussion) or a Short Talk with Poster Session (a 5- minute presentation slot plus the opportunity to display a poster). Your submission, prepared according to the instructions given on the website should reach the Congress Office no later than 10 January, 2020.

We very much hope that you will indeed submit a paper to the Congress, so that the Thematic Session on FS07 – Smart Actuating Systems – can truly represent the state of the art in this field.

Yours sincerely

Thematic Session Co-chairs Marie-Caroline Jullien

International Congress on Rheology (ICR2020)

The Brazilian Society of Rheology invites you to participate in the XVIIIth International Congress on Rheology, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from August 2 to August 7, 2020.The Congress convenes every four years and brings together the world’s leading rheologists to present the latest advances and developments in this field.

The Congress will include opening and closing plenary lectures and keynote lectures by eminent rheologists, contributed oral presentations organized into seventeen symposia, and a poster session. Two short courses will be offered on the weekend before the Congress, August 1st and 2nd, 2020

In addition to the technical program, an active social program is planned which will introduce the participants to the wonderful attractions of Rio de Janeiro
