Synopsis
The Sir Eric Rideal Lecture honours an individual who has made a sustained and distinguished contribution to colloid and interface science in the UK and a one-day scientific meeting is organised around the winner. The 2021 awardee is Professor Steve Armes from the University of Sheffield. The one-day symposium, to be held in 2022 because of the pandemic, will feature seven invited lectures by his colleagues and collaborators to talk on both their more recent research related to Synthesis, Characterisation and Applications of Polymer Colloids. The meeting will conclude with Professor Armes’ award lecture. 
Attendees
This meeting should bring together chemists, chemical engineers and physicists interested in the fundamentals of polymer colloids research, as well as those interested in the preparation, analysis and application of these materials. One of the aims of the meeting is to allow young researchers and students a unique platform to get first-hand information from world-renowned scientists on topics of prime importance in colloid science.  Attendees can have their work featured in the lunchtime poster session.
