Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The annual European Colloid and Interface Society conference is a major event for the colloid science community, and this is the 31st conference in a series of successful meetings, of which the primary goal is to bring together all major disciplines of colloids and interfaces, enabling participants to exchange knowledge, communicate to each other the results of their recent research, and to network with colleagues for new collaborations.

ECIS 2017 will cover fundamental and applied advances in the fields of interfaces, dispersed systems, wetting, complex fluids, micro-and nano-engineered materials, upconversion nanoparticles, ion specific effects, self-assembly of surfactants, polymers and proteins, and advances in theories and instrumentation.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Polymer colloids
  • Microgels and gels
  • Polymers in solution
  • Polymer nanoparticles
  • Polymer gels
  • Self-assembly of polymers
  • Functionalization of surfaces with polymers

Submission window open date: 15 July 2017

Submission deadline: 28 February 2018

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
