We warmly invite all the chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers who have interest in the interdisciplinary field of colloidal and interface science to attend the 29th Conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS) that will be held in Bordeaux from 6th to 11th September 2015. This will be a great opportunity to exchange scientific or practical questioning and newly acquired knowledge, to promote new collaborations and reinforce already existing ones. The conference aims at covering fundamental and applied advances in the fields of Interfaces, Dispersed systems, Complex fluids, Micro- and nano-engineered materials with all kinds of elementary naturally occurring or synthesized building-bricks: surfactants, polymers, proteins, particles.
The conference will host a Workshop of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology: COST CM1101.
During the Conference, plenary lectures will be given by the laureates of the Overbeek 2014 and 2015 and Solvay 2015 Prizes. For the second time, the best oral presentation given by a young scientist will be awarded by the Enzo Ferroni Prize and several best poster Prizes will be awarded to young researchers and PhD students.
We are also happy to announce a pre-conference ECIS Training Course “SOFT MATTER AND FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS” to be held from 2nd to 5th September 2015. Elsevier gives the opportunity to publish the articles from the conference in a special issue of Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering Aspects after the usual refereeing procedure.
Additionally to a fruitful scientific conference we hope you will enjoy the nice city of Bordeaux and suburb and the pleasant region of Aquitaine in the South West of France. We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you during the 29th ECIS Conference in September 2015.
