International Colloid and Surface Science Symposium

the deadline for abstracts for an oral presentation has been extended to 18 April

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 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

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 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.
