2-7 September 2012
Colloid and interface science is an interdisciplinary field that embraces many scientific disciplines, from nanoscience, physics and chemistry to biology and medicine.
Lund University and Malmö University have the pleasure to invite you to the 26th Conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society, a gathering that regularly attracts preeminent international scientists. The Conference will explore recent advances in fundamental and applied science. Emphasis is particularly placed on the support of young scientists.
Parts of the Conference are hosted by COST, the European Cooperation in Science and Technology framework.
During the Conference, the awardees of the Rhodia Prize and the Overbeek Medal will be announced.
Selected presentation from the conference will be published as a special issue of Colloids and Surfaces A, edited by Thomas Arnebrant, Reinhard Miller and Tommy Nylander. The papers will be subject to review according to their scientific merits, in line with normal procedures of the journal. Manuscripts can be submitted from 20 August until October. More details and links to a manuscript submission home page will be published well before 20 August.
We are also happy to announce a pre-Conference ECIS Training Course on “Thermodynamics and calorimetry of colloidal and biomolecular systems”. The course will be held on Saturday/Sunday 1-2 September, at Malmö University.
In addition, a symposium honoring one of the founding fathers of ECIS, Professor Björn Lindman, Outlooks from strong traditions in colloid and interface science, will be held on Friday 7 September.
