The International Conference on Self-Assembly of Colloidal Systems (SACS’18) aims to bring together some of the most active and recognized chemists, physicists, theoreticians and engineers, to discuss the use of self-assembly as a tool to design functional colloidal materials with tailored properties.

The conference will be held from 20th to 22nd September 2018, in Bordeaux, France (Bordeaux university campus). It will feature some 6 outstanding Plenary Lectures, 6 Keynote Lectures and oral presentations delivered by internationally renowned scientists, as well as poster presentations. To facilitate contacts between the scientists, the number of participants is limited at 150.
