The last year was great as usual, owing to the great help made by the labo members including students of course, the other professors and staffs in Nagoya University (specifically in Department of Materials Physics), the editorial board members and staffs of the Journal of Society of Rheology Japan, collaborating private sectors (in particular Sumitomo Rubber Inc, Taiyo Kagaku Inc, and HASL Inc), and scientific colleagues around the world.
I wish you all a great new year.
Felice Anno Nuovo
