It is my privilege and great pleasure as President of the International Society of Biorheology and President of the First International Congress of Biorheology to give you the greetings of the membership of our Society. We are happy and proud to be here in Lyon and have our first Congress convened jointly with the VI. International Congress on Rheology. We are grateful to the members of the International Committee on Rheology for having sponsored this joint venture. We are grateful as well to the members of the Organizing Committee of the VI. International Congress on Rheology and in particular we thank its President Professor Vallet and its Secretary Dr. Smadja for everything they have done to make us welcome here in Lyon and for taking over the chores in the administration of our Congress in association with that of the Congress on Rheology.
