This is the fourth colloid science conference in this series and will be held in Liverpool from July 17 – 19 2023. 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.
One of the sessions will be rheology themed:
Rheology, Soft Solids and Complex Fluids | chairs - Bettina Wolf , Andrew Howe & Phil Threlfall HolmesTalks on soft matter systems are welcome in this session if they have a rheological component. The systems may be bulk or interfacial, fluids, crystals or gels. Components could include self-assembled systems, colloids, granular matter, liquid crystals, polymers and/or active matter. Both academic and applied topics are very welcome: those that combine good science to application, particularly so.
Rheology is a consequence of interactions and dynamics, sizes, charges and concentrations. One of the key targets of a successful formulation is a rheology that enables efficient processing and aim product properties. Soft matter, one might say, is so defined by rheology (soft).
