Colloid and Interface Science is now vital to new technologies, for improving the quality of life, as well as helping address trans-national global issues. For example, this field has major impacts in green sciencebio, medical and health sciencesenergy and resource efficiency.

The conference aims to bring together international researchers to communicate the latest developments across the broad and diverse fields of Colloid and Interface Science. The goals of the meeting are to communicate and share research from the frontiers of Colloid, Interface and Materials science.

Congratulations to Professor Keith P Johnston, winner of the 2015 JCIS - Darsh Wasan Award of the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. He has made outstanding contributions to Colloid and Interface Science, and he is one of the most highly cited authors in the field. Professor Johnston will deliver his Award lecture during the conference.

Best Poster Prize

Our committee will select the two best posters, which will each win one free registration for the 6th International Colloids Conference (Berlin, Germany) and a certificate.

Conference Topics

The conference will focus on five main themes:

  • Functional colloidal materials and nanomaterials

       » energy, environment and catalysis
  • Biomaterials and nanomedicine

       » design, delivery and diagnostics
  • Engineered surfaces and interfaces

       » interfacial processes, capillary and wetting
       » adsorption, catalysis and electrochemistry
  • Advanced surfactants biocolloids and soft matter

       » encapsulation, compartmentalization and solubilization
  • New theory, novel phenomena and experimental techniques

Free Open Access Publication for Students

Selected papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. Authors will be invited by the Chairman or co-chairs to submit an article to the journal, which will be subject to the usual review process.

To support the students attending the 5th International Colloids Conference, if their article is accepted in the special issue, it will be published open access without any charges.

The student must be a full-time student working towards a PhD (or have not received his/her PhD more than 12 months prior to the conference date).
