About the 2017 Symposium
The 91st annual meeting of the American Chemical Society Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry will highlight the latest scientific advances in colloid and surface science, its intersection with other scientific domains such as biophysics and environmental science, and its application in biotechnology, coatings, functional nanomaterials, and other diverse areas. The conference is traditionally organized and hosted by a university, and thrives on strong international attendance by participants from academia, industry and national laboratories. Approximately 500 oral and poster presentations are expected for this premier event in our field.
In addition to 13 technical symposia and a poster session, this symposium features two plenary lectures, the Unilever Award Lecture, the Victor K. LaMer Award Lecture, and an instrument exhibition. The social program includes a Sunday evening dinner reception, a Monday evening poster session with refreshments, and the Tuesday evening Symposium Banquet.
