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.

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.

Topics & Application Areas

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

  • Colloids in optics and photonics
  • Stimuli-sensitive particles and assemblies
  • Particle stability - understanding and control of stability
  • Nanoparticle-protein interactions
  • Applications in personal care products and foods
  • Other

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 2008 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.
