Dear Colleagues,

The time has come….

We warmly invite you to join us at ECIS2014 – the 28th Conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society to take place at the Grand Resort Hotel, Limassol, Cyprus on 7-12 September, 2014. ECIS2014 aims to bring fundamental and emerging trends in all aspects of colloid science, and to provide opportunities for chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers to exchange knowledge and promote collaborations. We especially encourage young scientists to attend and present their work, and to benefit from the vibrant scientific environment.

The meeting will begin on Sunday evening with a reception, and will continue until midday on Friday. We have a rich and stimulating scientific program, and events including a COST action workshop on Colloidal Aspects of Nanoscience for Innovative Processes and Materials, and symposia on Complex Wetting Phenomena hosting the Marie Curie project CoWet.

For the young scientists we organized a workshop on HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY PUBLISH SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES. Two best oral presentation given by young scientists will be awarded the new Enzo Ferroni Prize and the new Technion-Israel Institute of Technology Prize. Several Best Poster prizes will be awarded to young researchers and PhD students.

Supported by Elsevier, ECIS2014 will have proceedings in Colloids and Surfaces A. Further, a special issue on Biological Colloids and Colloids in Biology with original research papers and invited reviews will be published in Colloids and Surfaces B.

The journals websites will open for paper submission, from the begining of November until January 30, 2015. More details will follow soon.

In the updated site kindly find detailed information on the Cyprus venue, accommodation in Limassol, airport transportation, tours, general information and more.

Looking forward to seeing you at ECIS2014!
