The meeting is organised by the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group and the SCI Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group.
Endorsed by the British Society of Rheology and the Particle Technology Group of IChemE.
Huntsman Pigments, GlaxoSmithKline and Anton Paar have kindly agreed to sponsor the meeting.
A forum for sharing new results and ideas in experimental and theoretical suspension mechanics, with an emphasis on the physical properties and processing behaviour of colloidal suspensions; upon work aimed at changing the way we approach process design, scale-up, optimisation and control and which enables novel processes. The practical motivation for the meeting is the enormous importance of suspension and fine-particle processing in the manufacturing industries, in water-treatment, oil, coal and gas production, in mining and minerals processing and biotechnology.
The conference will be held at Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge.
