Meetings of the Hellenic Society of Rheology
The 9th Hellenic Society of Rheology
conference will be held from 24 to 27 of June, 2019, in Samos. The Organizing Committee consists of
K. Housiadas (Chair), Samos, Greece, and G. Georgiou, Nicosia, Cyprus.
The 1st announcement is here.
Special emphasis will be given to the following fields of research:
wet systems: solutions, suspensions and
melts, composites and fracture
interfacial phenomena: films, emulsions,
surfactants and microfluidics
biologically relevant flows
liquid-solid transitions: yielding, vitrification
non-viscometric and turbulent flows
computational rheology, non-Newtonian fluid
Just before the meeting, on June 22-23, a short course on
MODERN RHEOMETRY: SHEAR and EXTENSION
will be given by:
- Dr. Qian Huang, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark
- Dr. Salvatore Costanzo, University of Naples Federico II, Italy
The deadline for application for the Short Course is June 10, 2019 and the early registration fee is €150. More information can be found at http://mathweb.aegean.gr/hsr2019/course.php. Information on the course fees is provided at
The 8th Hellenic Society of Rheology
conference was held from Wednesday, July 12th, to Friday, July 14th 2017, at Curium Palace Hotel, Limassol, Cyprus.
The conference was co-organized by HSR, the
University of Cyprus, and the Cyprus University of Technology,
with A. Alexandrou and G. Georgiou being the
co-chairs. The meeting
was attended by 60 delegates not only from Greece
and Cyprus, but also from fourteen other countries (Bulgaria,
Canada, France, Germany, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Jordan,
Luxembourg, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, the
UK, and the USA).
Special emphasis was given to the following fields of research:
- wet systems: solutions, suspensions and granular matter
- melts, composites and fracture
- interfacial phenomena: films, emulsions, surfactants and microfluidics
- biologically relevant flows
- liquid-solid transitions: yielding, vitrification and gelation
- non-viscometric and turbulent flows
During the HSR Business meeting a new executive board was elected for 2017-2019.

The 7th Hellenic Society of Rheology
conference took place at the building of FORTH (Voutes, Heraklion, Crete,Greece), on 7 - 10 /7/2014. The chair of the organizing commitee was George Petekidis.
The Conference was attended by delegates from Greece, Cyprus and elsewhere. It included plenary lectures. The scientific papers were presented in 7 major themes.
- polymer melts and solutions
- colloidal suspensions
- out-of equilibrium systems: glasses and gels
- Attractive colloids and networks
- In-situ rheological methods
- Experimental and theoretical fluid dynamics
- Polymer processing
The satellite meeting on “Attractive Colloids
and Gels” (8-9 July) took place immediately after the HSR14 conference at FORTH. It brought together
world experts in the field of colloidal gels and provided forum for discussions of papers submitted
to the Special Topical Issue on “Rheology of
Colloidal Gels” of the Journal of Rheology
The 6th Hellenic Society of Rheology
conference took place in Athens, Greece on 28-29/6/2011 at the Demokritos Congress Center, by the foothills of Mount Hymettus in suburban Athens. The conference started with registration on Tuesday morning, 28 June 2011 and ended on Wednesday afternoon, 29 June 2011. As usual, the chair of the organizing commitee was Evan Mitsoulis, who was also elected at the meeting as the new president of our society.
The Conference was attended by 26 delegates mainly from Greece and Cyprus, although some foreign speakers also participated. It included 2 plenary lectures. The scientific papers were presented in 5 major themes. br>
A total number of 27 papers were given, all oral.
The Plenary lectures were given by: Prof. Dimitris Vlassopoulos of the University of Crete and IESL, FORTH, Greece, entitled “Structure and Viscoelasticity of Fluorocarbons at the Air/Water Interface” and a young and promising Prof. Yannis Dimakopoulos of the University of Patras, Greece, entitled “Hemodynamics of the Aortic Valve: Numerical Simulation and Open Issues”.
- rheology and rheometry
- structure and dynamics of polymers
- colloids and suspensions
- molecular modelling
- numerical simulations
A highlight of HSR-2011 was the banquet, which took place on Tuesday night, 28 June 2011, in a nearby taverna with entertainment provided by the older generation of Greek rheologists reminiscing about past high and low points of rheology.
A report about this meeting from our new president is here.
The program of the conference and the book of abstracts are given here. There are also a few photos from the conference: Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3 .
The 5th International Meeting of the Hellenic Society of Rheology (HSR 2007)
took place in Rhodes, in 5 - 10 of June, 2007, together with the XVth International Workshop on Numerical Methods in Non-Newtonian Fluid Flows. As usual, the chair of the organizing commitee was Evan Mitsoulis. Details are given in the 2nd announcement. The programme and some abstracts of this meeting are available.
Special emphasis was given to the following fields of research:
rheology and rheometry, structure and dynamics of polymers, colloids and suspensions, molecular modeling, numerical simulations experimental, theoretical & computational fluid dynamics

The 4th International Meeting of the Hellenic Society of Rheology (HSR 2004)
took place in Athens, June 27-29, 2004. The meeting was organized by
Prof. Evan Mitsoulis. Keynote lectures were delivered by
Dr. Kirk Valanis (U. Portland/Endochronics)
and Prof. Antony Beris (U. Delaware).
Book of Abstracts,
The 3rd International Meeting of the Hellenic Society of Rheology, June 10-14, 2001,
Patras, Greece, was dedicated to Professor Andreas Acrivos, one of the most influential
chemical engineers of the last 50 years, on the occasion of his retirement from the City
College of the City University of New York, where he held the A. Einstein Chair at the
- The 2nd Scientific Meeting of the Society took place between August 31-September
2, 1998, in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. It was attended by more than 60 people and established HSR as one of the most rapidly growing Scientific Societies in Greece.
The 1st Scientific Meeting of the Society was the organization
of an International Symposium on Rheology and Computational Fluid
Mechanics held between July 4-5, 1996, in Nicosia, Cyprus. This
Symposium was dedicated to the memory of the distinguished rheologist
Prof. Tasos Papanastasiou.
Policy on Meetings
Meetings of the Hellenic Society of Rheology are to be
held every two years in the summer. The meetings ordinarily will
last two to three days and are open to both members and non-members.
Every effort is made to stimulate and encourage fruitful discussion
during the technical sessions, with 25 minutes normally allotted
to the presentation and discussion of each paper. There are normally
no more than four simultaneous sessions, and the program includes
plenary lectures, special symposia, informal evening discussions,
and instrument exhibits.
