Welcome to RICI X - The 10th Iberian Meeting on Colloids and Interfaces!

We are excited to announce the upcoming 10th edition of the Iberian Meeting on Colloids and Interfaces (RICI X), scheduled to take place from June 23th to June 26th, 2024, at the historical city of Coimbra, Portugal. Building on the success of previous editions, RICI X aims to continue fostering collaboration and scientific exchange in the vibrant field of colloids and interfaces.

RICI, short for Reunión Ibérica de Coloides e Interfases/Reunião Ibérica de Colóides e Interfaces, is a collaborative effort between the Grupo Especializado de Coloides e Interfases (GECI) of the Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ) and the Real Sociedad Española de Física (RSEF), along with the Grupo de Colóides, Polímeros e Interfaces of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Química (SPQ). This event serves as a platform for researchers from Spain, Portugal, and around the world to come together, share ideas, and explore the latest advancements in colloidal science.

RICI X will feature an engaging program with relevant topics within the multidisciplinary domain of colloids and interfaces with plenary and invited lectures, as well as opportunities for scientific communications through talks and poster presentations. The diverse topics covered at RICI X include:

  • Colloids, Biocolloids, Nanoparticles, and Colloidal Nanoscience

  • Surfaces, Interfaces, and Films

  • Polymers, Foams, Emulsions, Liquid Crystals, and Gels

  • Surfactant Science and Technology

  • Advanced Materials and their Characterization

  • Theory and Modeling Applied to Soft Matter

  • Colloidal Biotechnology, Medical, Pharmaceutical, and Food Applications

  • Experimental Methods in Colloidal and Interface Science

  • Colloids and Surfaces in Energy and Environmental Technologies

On behalf of the organizers of RICI X, we extend a warm invitation to you to be a part of this enriching scientific experience. 

Join us in Coimbra for stimulating discussions, collaborative networking, and the exploration of the latest developments in the field of colloids and interfaces.

We hope you enjoyed the RICI X, in June 2024, as well as your time and experiences in Coimbra!
