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.

This 12th edition in the series will offer world class facilities for attendees to exchange new ideas, establish new scientific relationships and international collaborations.


The 12th 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.

Young Investigator Perspectives
Oral slots are available specifically for Young Investigators (PhD students or Post-docs). Young Investigator Perspectives talks should include clear scientific justifications for the research, new results and explanations of how the research has advanced the field compared to existing literature. There will be opportunities for these presenters to contribute Young Investigator Perspectives articles to the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, in consultation with the Editors.

Win the Best Poster Prize
Best posters will be selected by the Scientific Committee. Best Poster Prize winners will receive a certificate and free registration to the 2024 conference.

Post-conference publication
The Editors of the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science will select a small number of Authors and invite them to contribute to the journal. All papers accepted in this journal are subject to a stringent Editorial and peer review process. The Journal of Colloid and Interface Science is the premier journal in colloids with an Impact Factor of 9.965 and Cite Score of 14.5.

JCIS Open special issue


JCIS Open is the gold open access sister journal of the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. All authors of accepted abstracts who have registered for the conference are invited to submit an article to a special issue dedicated to the 12th International Colloids Conference. The open access fee will be waived for authors who have registered for the conference.

The special issue will be open for submissions from 14 June 2023. More information will be available here shortly.

Before travelling to the conference, please familiarise yourself with the Covid-19 requirements for Spain, which Elsevier will be following. The current country guidelines can be found here.
