Professor Alexei Likhtman (University of Reading, UK) was an outstanding scientist, and world-class rheologist, who tragically passed away in October 2015. His contributions to entangled polymer dynamics using theory and computer simulations were profound and plentiful. This made him an obvious choice for organizing the session on "computational rheology" at ICR2016; a charge that he gracefully accepted, and led until his fatal accident.

The rest of the organizing committee for computational rheology would like to organize a sub-session dedicated to Prof. Likhtman to commemorate his accomplishments. Theoretical/computational and experimental contributions are welcome. Please choose "Likhtman session" when you submit your abstract via the conference web-system to join us.
