This year our Awards dinner is sponsored jointly by our friends at CPFD and Jenike & Johanson.
The seventh biennial Australian Colloid and Interface Symposium will be held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia from 1-5 February, 2015.
This international four-day conference (plus Sunday Welcome reception), will provide an excellent opportunity for international and local colloid, surface and interface scientists to meet and discuss recent developments in their areas of research.
Special rates at the Grand Chancellor have been negotiated. Accommodation can be booked when registering. Registration will open in June.
