9th International Colloids Conference

16-19 June 2019 | Melia Hotel, Sitges, Barcelona, Spain

Colloid and Interface Science is the foundation for today’s advanced material science and engineering, nano-science, soft matter science and catalysis. As such, Colloid and Interface Sciences underpin new advances in energy efficiency, generation and storage, nano-medicine and drug delivery, sensing and diagnostics, amongst other applications.

This meeting aims to attract international researchers to communicate and share the latest developments in these dynamic and ever-expanding fields.

The conference will be held in the popular and attractive seaside resort of Sitges, near Barcelona. Our conference venue provides first class facilities and offers Attendees many opportunities to meet and learn from each other, to forge new scientific relationships and international collaborations.


Abstract submission deadline: 15 February 2019

Early bird registration deadline: 12 April 2019

Enjoy Sitges: 35km south of Barcelona

The conference will cover the following topics:

  • Advanced functional polymers, surfactants, gels, biocolloids and soft matter systems
  • Engineered functional interfaces, surfaces, films, membranes and composites
  • Materials for catalysis, separations, energy generation and storage
  • Bio materials, nano-medicines and diagnostics

Reasons to attend:

High quality presentations

Our attendees continuously rate the quality of the presentations among the highest in the field.

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

The best posters will be selected by the Scientific Committee: prize winners will receive a certificate and free registration to the 2020 conference.

Post-conference publication

After the conference selected articles will be published in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, in consultation with the Editors and subject to the journal’s peer review processes.
