Welcome to the ASR
The Australian Society of Rheology is open to all who are practicing, or have an interest, in the field of Rheology. There are no formal requirements for entry. We are privileged to number amongst our members leading Australian Rheologists from both Academic and Industrial backgrounds.
The membership of the ASR is drawn from academic, government, commercial and industrial backgrounds and as such provides a strong and broad base of rheological knowledge. We are also delighted to have a number of overseas members. A principal aim of the Society is to form a bridge between academic research and industry.
Application for the 2016 Howard See Future Rheologist Travel Award are now open. The $2,500 travel award was created to assist future rheologists with their costs to present a paper at an international rheology conference.
Application conditions and the application form can be found: rheology.org.au/awards/howard-see-travel-award
Applications close Wednesday, 31st August 2016
As incoming President of the ASR, I would like to say that I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the Society in this role. I’m not sure if it’s appropriate at this uncertain time, but it is tempting to say that there has never been a more exciting time to be a rheologist!
On behalf of the Society, I would like to thank the outgoing members of Council who have generously given their time and enthusiasm to maintain the ASR as an active and relevant society. In particular, Dr Nicky Eshtiaghi deserves our thanks for her work in liaison with Chemeca to ensure a prominent place for rheology, and likewise Dr Rahul Gupta who has been such a generally positive advocate and energetic worker for the Society. Dr Mark Coghill has also served the Society very capably and willingly as a council member and as President.
Looking ahead, it is my pleasure to welcome the incoming Council and to encourage them to suggest ways to enhance the ASR’s reach and impact. I’d also like to encourage the membership of the ASR to renew their memberships if they have not already done so, and to participate in the activities that the Society sponsors and organises throughout the year.
Please also encourage your students and colleagues with an interest in rheology to join the ASR and ensure its future viability.
