The European Society of Rheology is open for everyone interested in rheology in all countries of Europe. Rheology is defined as the science of the deformation and flow of matter which means that rheology in some form enters almost every study of material properties. The ESR involves rheologists engaged in both industrial and academic research and development and is therefore a common meeting ground for engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists with a common interest in rheology
The Annual European Rheology Conference (AERC 2017) in conjunction with the Nordic Rheology Conference will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark during April 3 - 6, 2017.

The 2017 Weissenberg Award recipient is Philippe Coussot from Université Paris-Est, Laboratoire Navier (Ecole des Ponts, IFSTTAR, CNRS), France. Coussot has contributed to both fundamental and engineering aspects of rheology, in particular thixotropy and yielding of dense suspensions, pastes and other complex out-of-equilibrium materials. He has made ground-breaking discoveries (such as viscosity bifurcation), developed cutting-edge experimental protocols (such as rheo-NMR) and contributed massively to the conceptual understanding of the rheology of (simple and thixotropic) yield stress fluids and their flow in complex geometries. With the same rigor, he has applied NMR to advance the field drying and porous media flow. His pioneering work has shaped the field and pushed toward unprecedented progress. Philippe is an active member of the rheology community, strongly engaged and dedicated mentor. Further details can be found in http://philippecoussot.com/philipe-coussot/.
The Executive Board (2017 - 2021) of the European Society of Rheology is:
Access to Rheologica Acta and Applied Rheology is free for all individual members of the ESR. Please access Rheologica Acta and Applied Rheology via the 'Member area'.
All participants of AERC 2017 (Copenhagen) are automatically individual members of the ESR until renewal is due during AERC 2018.
Access to Applied Rheology is also arranged via personal log-in to www.appliedrheology.org
