This meeting aims to bring together international researchers for communicating the latest developments in the fast-moving and ever-growing fields of Colloid and Interface Sciences.

The cutting edge and future directions for the subject will be presented by Plenary speakers, who are all high-ranking, world-leading scientists.

Hot new areas and recent advances will be communicated by Keynote lectures.

Showcase lectures and Poster sessions will present fresh and exciting results, which will form the foundations for new research themes.

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:

The conference 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 2018 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.
