Colloid, Surface Chemistry Joint Meeting
THE INTERNATIONAL Association of Colloid & Interface Scientists and the ACS Division of Colloid & Surface Chemistry will come together on June 14–19 at Columbia University's Morningside campus in New York City to host the Joint 13th International Conference on Surface & Colloid Science/83rd Colloid & Surface Science Symposium. The conference will bring together top researchers and technologists presenting research on a wide range of topics that come under the umbrella of colloid and surface science.
The meeting will include invited plenary and oral presentations, contributed papers, and posters. It will feature symposia on dynamics, surfactants and supermolecular assemblies, biology and health sciences, nanotechnology and engineering at the nanoscale, environmental colloid and interfacial processes, and future directions in colloid and surface science. The conference website, which contains meeting information, is acswebcontent.acs.org/colloid.
Early registration has closed. Registration fees are $795 for members, $895 for nonmembers, $250 for students, and $100 for guests. After June 1, attendees may register on-site. Further details on registration are available online.
