Header Polycoll18

181005 Cover2 Flyer Polycoll18We are pleased to invite you to Polycoll 2018, the annual meeting of the SCS Division of Polymers, Colloids and Interfaces of the Swiss Chemical Society, that will take place at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) on Friday, October 5, 2018.

Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers active in the field are encouraged to share their recent results with the community and to apply for poster presentations, as this may foster connections between scientists at any career level, stimulate the exchange of research ideas, and result in future research collaborations.

PhD students are also invited to apply for the DPCI thesis award, that is endowed with CHF 1'000.
