General Information

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the IX BRAZILIAN CONFERENCE ON RHEOLOGY (BCR 2022) in São Paulo, SP, from 29th November to 1st December 2022. The conference will be held at Mackenzie Presbyterian University (UPM), in the Higienópolis neighborhood of São Paulo. The conference is supported by The Brazilian Society of Rheology (a member of The International Committee of Rheology) and organized by Mackenzie Presbyterian University with the financial support of the Fundo Mackenzie de Pesquisa e Inovação (MackPesquisa).

The event will promote the exchange of ideas and knowledge among Brazilian researchers in the area, will continue the international insertion of the Brazilian scientific community, will intensify the relationship between Brazilian academia and industry, and will disseminate the area of Rheology in Brazil.

At the IX BRAZILIAN CONFERENCE ON RHEOLOGY 2022, topics such as Rheology and industry, polymer blends and composites, and biomaterials, among others, will be addressed. It will also include lectures and technical sessions taught in English. Thus, this event seeks more significant contact between Brazilian researchers in the field of rheology, where they can discuss scientific and technological advances with renowned national and international speakers.

In addition to the conference, you are invited to enjoy the city of SÃO PAULO, one of the most incredible cities in the world, cosmopolitan, vibrant, and the largest financial and cultural center in Latin America.

The Jesuits founded São Paulo on January 25, 1554, and today has more than 11 million inhabitants, the most populous city in Brazil and the largest Portuguese-speaking city in the world. Home of the large immigrant communities such as the Japanese, Italians, and Portuguese, with traditional ethnic neighborhoods such as Bixiga, Liberdade, and Bom Retiro, gives the city a fantastic culinary and artistic diversity.

The city has rich and diverse gastronomy, capable of satisfying the most demanding palates. Every year, it is featured with awards worldwide, of the most different types, with options ranging from luxury restaurants to street food. The art world is also enthusiastic here, where 101 museums (MASP, Pinacoteca, among others), 182 theaters, and numerous cultural centers and libraries exist. For those who like it, it has a busy nightlife with many bohemian neighborhoods, such as Vila Madalena.

São Paulo is also known for its architecture, housing many skyscrapers such as Mirante do Vale and Edifício Itália, and, even so, it has many green areas such as Ibirapuera Park.

We look forward to meeting you at the IX BRAZILIAN CONFERENCE ON RHEOLOGY 2022 in São Paulo, SP.
