XVI th International Conference

on Surface Forces

August 20-25, 2018

Dvorec zemledelcev

The meeting will cover a broad range of colloid and surface science from chemistry to physics and engineering with the emphasis on the fundamentals of surface forces. This series of meetings was initiated in 1960 by famous Russian scientist academician B.V. Derjaguin.

The Conference program will include keynote lectures, oral presentations, and poster sessions. Social events will comprise a tour of historic sites of Kazan region, welcome reception, a Conference dinner, and optional tours for accompanying persons.

Conference is devoted to all aspects of surface forces:

  • long-range surface forces
  • structure and properties of boundary layers of liquids
  • wetting and capillary phenomena
  • stability of colloids and thin films
  • numerical methods for investigation of surface phenomena
  • physico-chemical fundamentals of nanotechnology
  • self-organization in the bulk and at the interfaces of mixed systems based on amphiphilic compounds
