Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The annual ECIS Conference is a major event for this community with this being the 32nd Conference of a series of successful meetings, the primary goal of which is to bring together all major disciplines of colloids and interfaces, enabling participants to exchange knowledge, discuss the results of their recent research, and to network with colleagues to form new collaborations. The conference website: http://ecis2018.fkkt.uni-lj.si/
