Rapra presented the third successful European conference concentrating on polymer rheology as a practical tool for process control and quality analysis.

Papers were presented covering the latest techniques, equipment, and innovations in the monitoring and characterisation of polymers. Subjects addressed include the application of rheology to real-time processes, quality control, and flow behaviour.
