The 16th International Workshop for East Asian Young Rheologists

February 18-21, 2023

Welcome to IWEAYR-16

International Workshop for East Asian Young Rheologists (IWEAYR) is a prestigious event organized with a motivation to  the academicians, researchers and budding students in Asian to share their research findings with the experts in rheology and material science. This is a quite informal workshop, and its basic idea is to highly encourage the young researchers to communicate/discuss/interact under a friendly and informal atmosphere. The conference is to provide young researchers in the various aspects of rheology an opportunity to present their work and to enhance contacts among the Asian community and with colleagues in other countries. We hope the conference will also serve to boost rheology research and education in the east Asian communities. The young researchers willing to start-up his/her future collaboration as well as professors wishing to help it are highly welcome to join the workshop. IWEAYR-16 will be held on Udon Thani, Thailand during 18 - 21 February 2023 organized by Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Udon Thani Rajabhat University.
