Contest Description

In conjunction with the regular Poster Session, The Society of Rheology is sponsoring the Gallery of Rheology Contest session to highlight the visually striking aspects of research in our community. Posters or prints with images of deformation, flow, material structure, and other work that emphasizes visually engaging aspects of rheology are appropriate.

The Gallery of Rheology Contest posters will be displayed in a designated area throughout the meeting. To compete, in addition to the abstract submission to the Gallery of Rheology Contest session by August 17, 2018, entrants will also need to submit a digital copy of their entry through the Gallery of Rheology Contest Upload Site by October 12, 2018. For the meeting, bring a hardcopy that is no larger than 2 ft in width and 3 ft in height.

No video submissions will be accepted, but presenters may bring their own hand-held device to show any videos that supplement their poster.

A winner will be selected by popular vote at the conference and featured on the cover of the Rheology Bulletin. Winner needs to be a registered attendee at the conference, but need not be present to win. If necessary, a colleague can put up the poster for them.

Please contact the session co-chairs Randy Ewoldt or Vivek Sharma with any questions.

Submission Guidelines

To participate in the contest, entrants must following the following guidelines:

  • Entrants must submit abstracts of their entries through the normal web-based abstract submission for the Gallery of Rheology Contest session by August 17, 2018.
  • Entrants need to submit digital copies of their entries through the Gallery of Rheology Contest Upload Site by October 12, 2018. The digital copy must be a PDF file not more than 40 MB. The PDF file should be at least 600 dpi at a size of 8.5 in x 11 in (portrait), i.e. at least 5100 pixels width by 6600 pixels height. The submitted digital copy should be identical to the hard copy brought to the meeting.
  • For the meeting, bring a hardcopy that is no larger than 2 ft in width and 3 ft in height. This is a smaller size (about half size) than the posters in the Poster Session. The 2-ft horizontal limit is very important, as this is required to fit two posters on a single display board.
