The DPOLY short course on "Polymer Colloids: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications" will provide a detailed review on both well-established and emerging topics in the field that will include: emulsion and dispersion polymerization; physical processes to generate colloids; colloidal stabilization; structured colloids; microscopy and scattering in colloids; Pickering emulsions; colloids in motion; colloids in coatings, personal care, and medicine; simulations of colloids. The short course is designed to emphasize the breadth and depth of the field by focusing on fundamental- and special-topics of polymer colloid-related activities within the soft matter community. In addition to the lectures, there are two invited seminars highlighting recent advances in the field that are spearheading new science and technologies.

Who Should Attend

Students, postdocs, faculty and industrial researchers who are interested in learning about the synthesis, characterization and application of polymer-based colloids.
