13th International Colloids Conference

9-12 June, 2024 | Sitges, Barcelona, Spain Poster abstract submission open until 1 June 2024

International Colloids Conference

Join us for the 13th International Colloids Conference:

Learn from international researchers who will share the latest in colloid and interface science

Present your own research and share ideas with international researchers in an intimate and relaxed environment. Poster abstract submission open until 1 June 2024.

This 13th edition in the series will offer world class facilities for attendees to exchange new ideas, establish new scientific relationships and international collaborations.

Colloid and Interface Science has a long proud history, and an ever-increasing relevance for new directions in materials sciences and engineering. As such, amongst other applications, Colloid and Interface Science facilitates advances in nano-science, soft matter science, catalysis, new developments in energy efficiency, energy generation and storage, nano-medicine and drug delivery, sensing and diagnostics, multi-phase flows and wetting.

This conference aims to provide a forum for researchers from across the world to join in a relaxed atmosphere, to communicate and share the latest developments from these research areas.


The 13th International Colloids Conference covers the following topics:

  • New materials for energy generation and storage, catalysis, separations, buildings, foods, clothing and packaging

  • Advanced soft matter systems, covering functional and adaptive surfactants, polymers, gels and biocolloids

  • Designed responsive and functional interfaces, surfaces, films, membranes and composites

  • Bio materials, nano-medicines novel approaches to drug delivery and medical diagnostics

  • New theory, novel phenomena and advanced experimental techniques

Reasons to attend

High quality presentations

Our attendees continuously rate the quality of the presentations among the highest in the field. Learn from international researchers, understand the current state of research and challenges to future discovery, and present your latest research at this successful event.

Networking opportunities

Meet with international colleagues, grow your professional scientific network and make new friends. There will be plenty of opportunities to socialize throughout the conference and at the special conference dinner.

Gender policy

The conference series has developed and published a gender equality policy.
