The annual ECIS Conference is a major event for this community and this is the 32nd Conference of a series of successful meetings, whose primary goal is to bring together all major disciplines of colloids and interfaces, enabling participants to exchange knowledge, communicate each other the results of their recent research, and to network with colleagues for new collaborations.
Topics will cover fundamental and applied advances in the fields of interfaces, dispersed systems, wetting, complex fluids, micro-and nano-engineered materials, nanoparticles, ion specific effects, self-assembly of surfactants, polymers and proteins, and advances in theory and instrumentation. Plenary lectures will be given by the laureates of the Overbeek 2018 and Solvay 2018 Prizes and by four other eminent speakers. Furthermore, ECIS seeks to encourage the participation of young researchers and PhD students with awards dedicated to them for best oral and poster presentations.
Ljubljana is a relatively small city but with everything that larger capitals have, including its small-town friendliness and charm. In one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe you will have an opportunity to experience a trendy travel destination, a city with a green soul, its rich Roman heritage, a paradise for foodies and last, but not least, a magnificent Art Nouveau style venue. The conference will take place in Grand Hotel Union’s conference center on the exclusive location in the heart of Ljubljana.
We are happy to announce a pre-conference ECIS Training Course “Using thermodynamics in characterization: From colloids and self-assembled systems to biological macromolecules.” to be held on 31st August and 1st September 2018 at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana.
The local organizing team is actively at work to create a lively event that will offer an unforgettable experience for all ECIS 2018 participants.
We look forward to seeing you at the 32nd ECIS Conference in Ljubljana.
