Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
This meeting is for scientists interested in soft matter and its application.  Each speaker is an outstanding scientist with experience of a different industry.  Speakers will describe the high-quality science underpinning products in the context of the challenges that their industry faces, which can range from product performance to regulation.  Each industry has different constraints (cost / purity / safety / shelf life etc.).   Application environments can range from ambient (agrochemical) to inside the body (pharmaceutical) or to extremes of temperature and pressure (oil).  These differences mean successful formulations require innovative and excellent use of colloid, polymer, surfactant and interfacial science.  The speakers hope to inspire, educate and entertain scientists both from academia and other industries.
