8th International Colloids Conference

10-13 June 2018 | Fudan University, Shanghai, China

Colloid and Interface Science is a central science, spanning many disciplines. As such, Colloid and Interface Sciences are key to a wide range of new technologies and new challenges; for example, energy generation and storage, nano-medicine and drug delivery, sensing and diagnostics, advanced materials, climate change and resource efficiency.

This meeting aims to attract international researchers to communicate and share the latest developments in these fast-moving and continually expanding fields.

The conference is being held in Shanghai in recognition of the significant and impressive contributions made by China to Colloid and Interface Sciences.  This conference venue will provide Attendees with unique opportunities to meet and learn from each other, to forge new scientific relationships and international collaborations.


The conference will cover the following topics:

  • Materials for catalysis, energy generation and storage
  • Nano-medicines, diagnostics and biomaterials
  • Functional and engineered interfaces, surfaces, films, membranes and composites
  • Advanced polymers, surfactants, gels, biocolloids and soft matter systems
  • New theory, novel phenomena and experimental techniques

Reasons to attend:

Gender Policy

The conference series has published its gender policy.

Young Investigator Perspectives

Oral slots are available specifically for Young Investigators (PhD students or Post-docs). Young Investigator Perspectives talks should be structured to include clear scientific justifications for the research, new results from the studies 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 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, and prize winners will receive a certificate and free registration for the 2019 conference.

Post-Conference Publication

After the conference a selection of articles will be published in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, subject to the normal peer review process.
