Welcome to ISR
The Indian Society of Rheology (ISR)
is India’s largest scientific society
in the field of rheology and soft matter.


The Indian Society of Rheology (ISR) was established on 4 February 1982, with the goal of advancing knowledge relating to the physics of deformation and flow of matter.

Over the past two decades, India has witnessed a steady increase in the number of researchers from across disciplines engaged in the pursuit of scientific investigations of complex fluids/soft matter. Rheology has become an important tool to interrogate the structure and dynamics of this state of matter. There has also been an increasing interest among industrial R&D groups in the country to use rheology as a tool for quality control, benchmarking and product development. In this backdrop, the Indian Society of Rheology (ISR) has been rejuvenated in 2012.
