11th International Colloids Conference

12-15 June 2022 | Altis Grand Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal


At present we intend to host the 11th International Colloids Conference according to COVID-secure guidelines onsite at the Altis Grand Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal, to best facilitate in-person networking and learning.

However, as the future situation regarding international travel remains uncertain, we have the option to switch to our fully interactive online conference platform should the need arise.

You can feel confident when submitting your abstract to the conference that we will provide a high-quality, peer-reviewed program in which to showcase your research.

This is coupled with our promise to refund your onsite registration fee, with no penalty, should you wish to cancel during the uncertainty of the outbreak.

Abstract submission deadline: 11 February 2022

Early bird registration deadline: 15 April 2022

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 eleventh conference in this series will be held at the Altis Grand Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal, from 12-15 June 2022. This event will offer world class facilities for attendees to exchange new ideas, establish new scientific relationships and international collaborations.


Oral and poster abstracts are invited on the topics below and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.

  • 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 drug 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 2023 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 8.128.
