This is the third colloid science conference in this series and will be held in Manchester from July 10th – 12th 2017. It is being jointly organized by the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group and the SCI Colloid and Surface Science Group and will provide a perfect opportunity for UK and international researchers interested in colloid and interface science to meet, present and discuss issues related to current developments in this field.

Plenary and keynote speakers Plenary speakers are Professor Debora Berti (University of Florence and Centre for Colloid and Surface Science, Italy), Professor Vinny N Manoharan (Harvard University, USA) and Professor Paul Mulvaney (University of Melbourne, Australia). Professor Joseph Keddie (University of Surrey, UK) will be giving the Thomas Graham Lecture. The meeting has also attracted an impressive list of international keynote speakers, full details can be found on the website.

Call for papers Abstract submission opens early January 2017. Please visit the meeting website for full details of submission and registration.

Meeting themes include: • Wetting • Nanoparticles • Foams/Bubbles/Emulsions and microemulsions • Colloidal suspensions • Programmable self-assembly • Biocolloids and Biointerfaces • Charcterisation of Formulated Products • Colloidal Physics • Formulation Science and Engineering

Registration Deadline Registration is now open.
The early bird deadline is in 5th May 2017.

Social Events The conference dinner will be held at the world famous Old Trafford the home of Manchester United. The evening will start with a drinks reception in the fascinating museum. Other social events include a welcome and pre-registration event in the Power Hall of the Museum of Science and Industry. Where some of the machines will be running. There will also be poster sessions at Manchester Central with a chance to network with other delegates and the exhibitors.

The Venue

We have selected Manchester Central as the venue for Colloids 2017. Manchester Central is an award-winning venue in the heart of one of Europe's most vibrant cities. Its vaulted arches and station clock have made Manchester Central an iconic city feature for over 130 years.

Manchester

Manchester is the European City of Science 2016 – recognition of its unique scientific heritage and contribution to scientific discovery, innovation and industry. From Rutherford splitting the atom almost 100 years ago, to Alan Turing’s ground-breaking work with computers, to more modern world firsts such as the test-tube baby, bionic eye implant and the isolation of graphene – Manchester has a great science story to tell.

Sir Eric Rideal Travel Bursaries

The Sir Eric Rideal Travel Bursaries are a joint bursary between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Chemical Industry.  It provides funds for attendance at a conference in the field of colloid and surface science.

We particularly welcome applications from delegates who wish to attend the UK COLLOIDS 2017 conference.

Sir Eric Rideal (1890-1974) was the founding Chair of the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group.

The Rideal Trust annually offers financial assistance to promising academic research workers in the general field of colloid and surface science to attend conferences and/or to visit relevant research institutions.

Awards of up to £500 will be made on a competitive basis to assist with travel and/or subsistence and/or conference registration fees.

There are two closing dates for applications each year:

15 April (for travel planned between 1 June and 31 December)

15 October (for travel planned between 1 December and 30 June).

Please contact the SCI Awards department for further information.
