European Society of Rheology (ESR)

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

 


IBEREO 2017

Valencia/Spain, September 6 - 8, 2017

We are delighted to invite you to "IBEREO 2017: The multidisciplinary science of rheology. Towards a healthy and sustainable development". The most recent trends in rheology will be addressed, with a special emphasis on industrial applications. An important consideration will be given to health and sustainable development, as main drivers in nowadays product development. Recent advances in experimental techniques, modelling and simulation will be also covered.

For more information about the meeting, please visit the web page www.ibereo2017.com

16th European School on Rheology

Leuven, Belgium, September 11-15, 2017

The European School on Rheology is an intensive short course, designed to give practicing engineers and scientists an understanding of the fundamentals of rheology, its principles of measurement and its application to problem
solving. The course is a unique combination of theoretical fundamentals of rheology and practical details of performing measurements. Small group laboratory sessions are designed to give participants practical experience in making rheological measurements and to build confidence in understanding the results. Informal discussion sessions are scheduled to facilitate individual interaction with faculty and staff.

9th Conference of the Australian Society of Rheology and the Korean Society of Rheology

Sydney/Australia, November 29 - December 1, 2017

The ninth combined conference of the Australian Society of Rheology and the Korean Society of Rheology will be held at The University of Sydney. The event will provide an international forum to showcase rheological research in Australia, Korea and the broader Pacific region. All scientists and engineers interested in rheology are invited to participate in this conference.

Please refer to the conference website (https://akrc2017.eventbrite.com.au) for further information.

Soft matter interfaces: From biology to engineering applications

Ascona/Switzerland, November 5 - 10, 2017

Soft matter interfaces occur when surface-active species, such as surfactants, proteins, polymers or particles populate an interface and change its dynamics. Such complex interfaces occur in cells in biology, droplets in emulsions or bubbles in foams. The conference will try to identify the common issues in such high interface materials trying to embrace a range of applications from biology, over material sciences to novel engineering processes.

Weissenberg Award 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/.
