UK Colloids 2020

International Colloid and Surface Science Symposium

Possible postponement of UK Colloids 2020

The organising committee of UK Colloids 2020 are currently reviewing whether it is prudent to hold the conference as originally planned (Liverpool, July 20-22) given the uncertainty around the coronavirus health situation.

At this point in time, and until clear guidance has been issued, we would still encourage delegates to continue to submit abstracts, but advise everyone not to make travel / accommodation plans unless they are 100 % refundable. We have extended the following deadlines:-

Abstract submission deadline now 16 April

Presenters notified now 14 May

Early bird deadline now 1 June

This is the fourth colloid science conference in this series and will be held in Liverpool from July 20th – 22nd 2020. It is being jointly organised 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.


The venue for UK Colloids 2020 will be ACC Liverpool.

A UNESCO world-heritage waterfront location, award-winning events team and the uniquely flexible design of ACC Liverpool combine to give the ultimate venue. ACC Liverpool's world-class facilities and cutting-edge design gives the ideal space in this vibrant and inspirational city.


Liverpool is a city with unique attractions, exciting events, world class sport offerings, unrivalled musical heritage and famously warm welcomes, Liverpool is the ideal destination to visit and explore.

With the largest collection of museums and galleries anywhere outside of the Capital, Liverpool's culture and heritage are at the very heart of the city.
