Every two years the ASR selects a young rheologist demonstrating outstanding research and presentation skills upon whom to bestow the ‘Howard See Young Rheologist Travel Award’.
Three candidates were shortlisted for the 2014 award, based on their proposed conference abstracts:
The three shortlisted candidates each prepared a 10 minute slideshow presentation, delivered via teleconference to the Award Committee. Each presentation was followed by an intensive 5 minute Question and Answer period.
All three candidates made commendable efforts.
The Award Committee were unanimous in their assessment, and the Australian Society of Rheology is delighted to announce that the winner of the ‘Howard See Young Rheologist Travel Award’ for 2014 is:
Mr. Davoud Zare.
This award will cover conference-related expenses up to $2500.
We heartily congratulate Mr. Zare, and wish him all the best as he prepares to present his research at the 7th International Symposium on Food Rheology and Structure, held in Zurich later this year.
The Award Committee additionally decided to bestow a minor discretionary ‘Encouragement Bursary’ upon Mr. Chandi Sasmal, to cover conference-related expenses up to $500. This is intended to assist in his presenting at the 87th Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology, in Baltimore later this year.
We thank all applicants for the time and effort they put into their applications. We look forward to the upcoming conference reports and ASR seminars. And, further into the future, we look forward to receiving another round of impressive applications towards the end of 2016 for the next Award.
Melbourne, Australia. 27 September–01 October 2015.

Twelve members were elected unopposed to the new ASR Council. We thank Prof. Peter Scales and Prof. Billy Todd for their longstanding contributions as they move on. We welcome new Council members Mr. Adam Crust and Miss. Flora Markis.
Dr. Mark Coghill spoke at the AGM as he stepped down after serving as President of the ASR:
Our society was formed 31 years old and relies on people volunteering their time to achieve its goals of promoting and advancing rheology in Australia.
Thus I wish thank the society’s council members and the everyone involved in the lecture evenings held in Melbourne and Perth. I also wish to thank Peter Scales and the 6th Pacific Rim Conference on Rheology committee for organising an excellent event.
Our constitution states that “a member shall not be eligible for the office of President for more than two consecutive years”. Therefore, I need to step down and congratulate Rahul Gupta for accepting the president position.
Dr. Rahul Gupta was elected unopposed as President, and provided the following statement:
As incoming President of the ASR, I would like to welcome you all. I am deeply honoured to serve as President of this society for the coming term. I would like to build up the society's network with industry and encourage you all to be involved for the advancement of the ASR's profile and relevance with industry. My sincere thanks to outgoing President, Mark Coghill, for his excellent work carried out as ASR president for last two years. I am sure the ASR will continue to benefit from his experience and service for broadening the outcome of our society.
