Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 16th Conference of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Scientists (IACIS 2018)"
A special issue of Colloids and Interfaces (ISSN 2504-5377).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2018

IACIS 2018 is the 16th Conference of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Scientists (www.IACIS2018.org) and brings together scientists from academia, research institutes, and industry working in the field of colloids and interfaces. This field is strongly interdisciplinary, combining aspects of physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology. Colloidal systems are nowadays also referred to as “soft matter,” indicating that their structure and dynamics are governed by physical interactions, which are generally weak. The continued development of statistical thermodynamics, advances in theories of liquids and phase transitions, together with computer modelling and simulations have created a powerful conceptual framework. In the last few decades, the field has become more and more integrated with applied sciences, such as food, environmental, and biomedical sciences. The conference provides a podium for presenting scientific posters and oral contributions addressing all these aspects.
Participants of IACIS2018 are cordially invited to contribute original research papers to this Special Issue of Colloids and Interfaces.

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. Colloids and Interfaces is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
