The meeting will be of interest to both industrial and academic researchers, particularly those from colloid chemistry, soft matter physics and chemical engineering backgrounds working with suspensions. The meeting will cover new advances in the science of suspensions, with a particular focus on real-world applications, be they industrial (4 speakers) or geological. The lecture programme will conclude with the Graham Lecture, to be presented by Professor Wilson Poon of the University of Edinburgh. Professor Poon chose speakers who are outstanding and put good science into real-world applications. Professor Poon has chosen outstanding speakers who address real-world applications with excellent science.
The Graham Lecture is awarded, biennially, to a scientist working in the UK who in the prime of their research career, has established an international reputation in colloid science, and has already made distinguished contributions to the field of colloid science. In addition to hearing great presentations and the opportunity to contribute a poster, there is plenty scope for networking to catch up with old friends and make new ones.
