ABOUT SRJ

The Society of Rheology, Japan (SRJ) was founded in 1973 and was approved, in 2005, by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as an only official society specialized to rheological research in Japan. SRJ is a member of the International Congress of Rheology.

The aim of SRJ is to promote the research in the field of rheology by supplying information and offering opportunities for cooperation among scientists and engineers with any interest in rheology. It publishes a periodical journal, regularly organizes a few meetings each year, occasionally organizes international conferences, and supports meetings sponsored by other societies.

The SRJ now consists of three Branches covering east, middle, and west parts of Japan. It also has six Special Divisions, each involving the members in a specific field of rheology. The SRJ consists of more than 1,000 personal members and 45 sustaining members as of April 2006. The SRJ membership is open to all researchers from any part of the world, and to all persons who feel the activities of the society advance their professional development and intellectual curiosity.

SRJ MEETINGS AND EVENTS

For more details of the meetings/events described below,
please contact member@srj.or.jp. 

POLYMER PROCESSING SOCIETY

http://psfebus.allenpress.com/eBusPOPR/

THE ANNUAL MEETING OF SRJ is held for 2 days in every May. About 20 posters and 15 talks are presented in addition to SRJ award lectures. The meeting in 2006 was held in Tokyo. 


THE RHEOLOGY SYMPOSIUM (fall meeting), held for 3 days in every October or November, is the largest, regular meeting on rheology in Japan. The symposium attracts more than 250 participants, and presentations are given for more than 150 papers and a few special Lectures. The meeting in 2006 will be held in Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan in the period of Oct.4-6. 


THE RHEOLOGY COURSE, held for 2 days in every November or December, is an introductory course in rheology for materials engineers. The course, covering rheology in general, is highly appreciated for educating newcomers in industries, and about 100 participants attend the course every year. 


THE COURSE FOR FOOD RHEOLOGY, held for 2 days in every December for a limited number of participants (30 at the maximum), is a comprehensive course for foods and natural products. The course, offering several lectures combined with actual rheological measurements on site, is highly appreciated for improving the use of rheological measurements as a tool in food industry.


THE COURSE FOR SUSPENSIONS, held for 1 day in every June, is a comprehensive course for suspensions/emulsions. The course is highly appreciated for improving the use of rheological measurements as a tool in industries related to paints, cosmetics, flow designing, etc.


THE RHEOLOGY WORKSHOP, held occasionally according to requests from the SRJ members, is an introductory workshop for a specific subject like computer-aided engineering.


INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES have been occasionally organized by SRJ. The meetings include the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Kyoto Symposia on Rheology (1884, 1988, 1996, and 2002) and the 1st Pacific Conference on Rheology (PCR). The 5th Pacific Rim Conference on Rheology (PRCR; previously RCR) will be organized by SRJ in 2010.

Privacy Policy of the Society of Rheology, Japan

Following the Personal Data Protection Act in Japan (enforced as of April 2005), the Society of Rheology, Japan (SRJ) has settled the following Privacy Policy for its members under recognition of the importance of personal data of the members.


  1. Collection of the personal data of the members.
     SRJ collects the personal data of its members within the necessity for performing its activity as a scientific society. This collection is made, in principle, with a clear indication of the purpose of the collection/usage of the data and with an approval of individual members.

  2.  Usage and proffer of the personal data of the members.
     SRJ utilizes the personal data of its members only for performing its activity as a scientific society. SRJ never indicates/proffers the data to a third person/party unless individual members agree with it, except under unavoidable situations: SRJ may indicate/proffer the data to a third person/party when (1) SRJ is forced by the Japanese law/act, (2) individual members give an approval for it, and/or (3) a part of the data is consigned to an agent who is officially entrusted by SRJ with a part of the action of SRJ (such as shipment of the SRJ journal).

  3. Care for the personal data of the members.
     SRJ properly takes charge of the personal data of the members to protect the data from illegal/undesired actions such as illegal access, theft, loss, destruction, falsifying change, and omission. If these illegal actions occur (with a rare possibility, though), SRJ does its best to recover the original data and makes a counterplot for preventing recurrence of the illegal actions. Furthermore, SRJ strictly supervises an agent who is officially entrusted by SRJ with a part of the action of SRJ.
     The personal data of the members that have been published by the members themselves are out of the care by SRJ. However, even for such published data, SRJ never makes indication/proffer to a third person/party except for the cases specified in the terms (1)-(3) in section 2 of this policy.

  4.  Indication and correction of the personal data of the members.
     SRJ indicates, in principle, the personal data of a member without any delay when the member requests the indication of his/her data. SRJ responds to a member without any delay when the member offers a correction of his/her data and/or forbids the usage of the data.

  5. Indication and correction of the personal data of the members.
     SRJ may revise this policy according to a change in the Japanese law/act and/or other official changes in Japan. This revision is published, without any delay, in the SRJ home page in the electronic web.

This policy is enforced as of August 31, 2006.
Questions for this policy are to be sent to the SRJ office
(Phone: +81-75-315-8687, Fax: +81-75-315-8688, E-mail : member@srj.or.jp).
