7th Asian Conference on Colloid and Interface Science

In 2017 Asian Society for Colloid and Surface Science organized the 7th Asian Conference on Colloid and Interface Science (8-11 August 2017) at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA. The Centre of Fundamental of Science and Self-Assembly (FSSA) and the Centre of Theoretical Physics, the University of Malaya and other cooperating institutions locally and internationally jointly hosted the event.

The 7th ACCIS focused on current topics (but not limited to) of colloidal science, nano-/biotechnology, self-assembly, polymers and their applications from nanocomposites, cosmetics, personal care products, delivery systems, microelectronics, pharmaceutics and bioengineering. The meeting was open to the public and scientific communities worldwide. Academicians, scientists, researchers, including graduate students from all over the world were invited to participate and share their scientific experience in colloid & interface science and technology.

Apart from enjoying the intense scientific discussions, participants also had the opportunity to meet scientists from different Asian countries in a truly Asian environment. The hosting city Kuala Lumpur has its own charming character known for its colorful values, races and traditions. The city has many interesting architectures, prominent landmarks and building developed over years from a small tin Miners Settlement to a growing modern city. The venue (Berjaya Time Square Hotel) was in the heart of Kuala Lumpur City Center only a few minutes to many city attractions like the Petronas Twin Tower, KL Tower, Central Market, Petaling Street Night Market, Independence Square etc… The venue was also attached to the monorail train system, which is connected to many interesting touristic sites like Batu Caves, National Mosque, Chow Kit Road, Lake Garden etc…

The conference attracted about 220 participants from 22 countries including Malaysia, Japan, India, Taiwan, Korea and China, which sent the majority of the participants.
