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 2021) will take place in Sevilla/Spain during April 7 - 9, 2021.
For more information, please visit the AERC 2021 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 2019 (Portoroz) are automatically individual members of the ESR until April 2020.
At every AERC or ICR, the editors of Rheologica Acta present the publication award sponsored by Anton Paar. 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 2019 Rheologica Acta Publication Award was given to:
Cloitre M., Bonnecaze R.T.:, published in Volume 56, 283 - 305 (2017).
The research group “Fluid Dynamics of Complex Biosystems” headed by Prof. Dr. Natalie Germann has an open postdoctoral position in the field of encapsulation. (published 11.11.2019)
Eco-friendly materials and products are important ingredients in a society for sustainable development. The Cellulose Biocomposites project is a multidisciplinary effort exploring new opportunities for nanostructured cellulose materials. Research towards new materials and processing concepts is performed, including a sustainability perspective. Participating universities include KTH Royal Inst of Technology, Stockholm, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg and Luleå Univ of Technology. The goals are new material concepts and knowledge towards better performance, new functionalities and eco-friendly attributes. (published 8.11.2019)
An outstanding postdoctoral researcher is sought for the development of a new rheometer system to be integrated as a state-of-the-art Rheo-SAXS sample environment at the MAX IV Laboratory, Lund, Sweden. MAX IV Laboratory is a Swedish national laboratory providing scientists from academia and industry with the brightest X-rays available in the world. Thus, the ambition is to have a sample environment with an international appeal through unique testing possibilities, as well as to support Swedish academic and industrial strengths.
