Welcome note

Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 36th Conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS 2022) that is taking place from 4th to 9th September 2022 in Chania, on the island of Crete, Greece. 

ECIS 2022 is organized by the Hellenic Polymer Society, under the auspices of the ECIS, and aims to bring together researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of Colloid and Interface Science, with a broad background ranging from chemistry and physics to biology and engineering. The Scientific Program includes plenary and keynote invited lectures, as well as oral and poster contributed presentations, consisting of four parallel sessions (one of which hybrid).   

The venue is the Minoa Palace, a 5-star hotel and conference center, located at the Platanias resort area, a few kilometers outside the city of Chania. In addition, a short course on Advanced Characterization and Modelling techniques for Colloids is organized at the premises of FORTH in Heraklion on the 2nd and 3rd of September. 

Complementing the scientific program, a diverse social program offers to all participants a taste of the history, culture and magnificent nature of the mountains and beaches of Crete. 

As a note of caution against the COVID-19 pandemic, we strongly recommend all participants to use masks in the conference rooms and closed spaces. 

We wish you a pleasant and fruitful stay.
