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 2019) will be held in Portoroz/Slovenia during April 8 - 11, 2019.
For more information, please visit the AERC 2019 site.
The 2019 Weissenberg Award recipient is Jan Vermant from ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
Prof. Jan Vermant is one of Europe’s finest experimental rheologists and also a leading scientist in colloid and interfacial dynamics. His work includes important findings on dispersion rheology and is recognized for his innovative and foundational contributions to interfacial rheology. He has profoundly influenced this latter topic through the development of new experimental methods, morphological control of model complex interfaces, and theoretical analysis of non-Newtonian interfacial flows. His outstanding accomplishments were recognized by the leadership of the ETH Zurich and he recently moved to that institution to hold the first chair in soft materials. He has also received the 2009 Journal of Rheology Publication Award of the Society of Rheology, the 2016 Lars Onsager Medal and Professorship (NTNU, Norway) and is a Fellow of the Society of Rheology (USA). Jan Vermant has established a world-class research program in experimental rheology with dual focus on instrumental development and advances in colloidal and interfacial dynamics. His work includes seminal discoveries that have brought understanding and fundamental insight to problems at the forefront of rheology and represents the qualities one seeks in a Weissenberg medalist.

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) and AERC 2018 (Sorrento) are automatically individual members of the ESR until end April of the following year.
At every AERC or ICR, the editors of Rheologica Acta present the publication award. This award gets selected by three editorial board members based on a preselection by the editors and is aimed to highlight the type of work which the journal likes to see published.
The 2018 Rheologica Acta Publication Award was given to:
Kim, H.S., Scheffold, F. & Mason, T.G.: Entropic, electrostatic, and interfacial regimes in concentrated disordered ionic emulsions, published in Volume 55, 683-697 (2016).
A postdoctoral researcher position in high performance polymer nanocomposites is available at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The project will have emphasis on the rheological properties of the nanocomposites.
