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 2018) in conjunction with the meeting of the Italian Society of Rheology (SIR) will be held in Sorrento/Italy during April 17 - 20, 2018.

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
Several PhD positions are open in the framework of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN project on Double Dynamics Network "Double dynamics for design of new responsive polymer networks and gels".
The PhD project is on 3D printed nanocomposites inspired by the bone-cartilage interface and will involve characterization with SAXS tensor tomography method.
The Postdoc project is within a pre-project for the new ForMAX beamline at MAX IV and involves SAXS on fibrilar systems under flow.
Investigation of complex and non-Newtonian fluids using recent rheo-NMR development with a strong focus on rheology.
A postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University focusing on computational tools to look at microstructure-property relationship in complex fluids.
Hanswalter Giesekus passed away on December 4, 2017. An obituary will be published soon in Rheologica Acta.
The Society of Rheology is seeking nominations for the Bingham Medal and the Arthur B. Metzner Early Career Award.
The ASR Council has awarded the ASR Medallion to Prof. Raja R. Huilgol in recognition of his outstanding and meritorious contributions to the science and technology of rheology.
A special issue of Rheologica Acta is devoted to Yield Stress Fluids: A 100 Years after Bingham’s Landmark Paper.
The Rheological Acta Publication Awards 2016 - 2017 were awarded during AERC 2017 in Copenhagen.
March 19 - 20, 2018
The focus of the joint symposium of the DRG and the BGR are the rheological properties of complex fluids in all its aspects: Rheology – 360°
June 17 - 21, 2018
The 9th TOP conference is organized by the University of Naples Federico II and by the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” during June 17- 21, 2018 in Ischia, Italy.
July 1 - 4, 2018
The conference will cover the physical, physiological and psychological aspects of eating and oral processing. We aim to bring together scientists from the disciplines of oral processing and biology, food science and technology, sensory science, dentistry, biophysics and biochemistry, and human nutrition to present and discuss their latest findings on all topics of eating, sensory perception, food breakdown in the mouth, and simulated, in-vitro oral processing among others.
July 9 - 13, 2018
Second edition of the Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics will be held during July 9 - 13, 2018 at the University of Porto.
