Special Symposium

This symposium will highlight the synthesis, characterization and applications of soft materials that contain nanoparticles: colloids. Colloid science has a tradition stretching back long before we started to call materials containing nanometer to micron sized structure "nano". Colloids comprise a wide range of products including foods, personal care products and paints. Topics will include:

  • Directed and Self Assembly: Fundamentals and applications in photonics and nanoelectronics
  • Tailoring Colloid Stability
  • Processing Issues: Colloids in external fields and under non-equilibrium conditions
  • Computer Modeling and Simulation
  • Applications in Personal Care and Cosmetics
  • Applications in Food Science
  • Novel Applications of Colloidal Materials

This symposium will be coordinated with the Soft Nanotechnology Symposium, the Nano Particles & Applications Symposium, the Composites and Interfaces Symposium, and the Nano Electronics & Photonics Symposium.

Poster Contest

Poster presentations accepted into this symposium will be automatically entered into the Soft Matter Poster Contest. Entries will be judged during the poster sessions at Nanotech 2007 by a team of Soft Nanotechnology experts from industry, the NSTI, and the Royal Society of Chemistry. The poster reporting the most exciting new discovery or application of soft nanostructured materials will receive a subscription to the RSC Soft Matter Journal.

Topics & Application Areas

Online abstract submissions are now being accepted. Proposed topics include, but are not be limited to:

  • Directed and Self Assembly
  • Tailoring Colloid Stability
  • Processing Issues
  • Computer Modeling and Simulation
  • Applications in Personal Care and Cosmetics
  • Applications in Food Science
  • Novel Applications of Colloidal Materials
  • Other
