Conference Program

It is our intent to construct a conference where people from the diverse collection of disciplines that constitute Colloid and Surface Science can gather for constructive discourse. We have tried to organize topics in a manner that promotes commingling of researchers from different specializations. In other words we would like to see people with novel measurement tools, simulation expertise and application specialists all talking with one another, as an example. So when you are trying to decide under which topic to place your talk, please think about how to benefit the widest audience of your colleagues. The topics listed here are generic. More specific symposia will nucleate within the topics listed here, and if you are interested in organizing one please contact the conference co-chairs.
