It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 18th International Conference on Electrorheological Fluids and Magnetorheological Suspensions (ERMR2023) in Chongqing, China from 9 June (Friday) to 12 June (Monday) 2023.
The ERMR2023 covers science and technologies relevant to electro-responsive (ER) and magneto-responsive (MR) materials. Its overall scope spans basic science and materials to engineering applications. The technical presentations of the conference will be organized into a single oral session and a poster session where all attendees can exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere. Researchers, practitioners and students are welcome to present and discuss their latest research and innovations.
Authors who present papers at the ERMR2023 conference are encouraged to submit journal quality papers to special issues to be organized in either Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures or Smart Materials and Structures. Such submissions will be considered following the usual review procedures of each journal to ensure that papers meet scope and quality requirements for the journals.
