The International Polymer Colloids Group (IPCG) conference is organized every two years. It aims to bring together the world’s leading researchers from both academia and industry to exchange the latest developments in polymer colloid science, as well as to discuss new directions and future challenges. The IPCG centers around polymer colloids and related topics, but relevant “non-colloid” topics are also of interest. The IPCG meeting set-up is in the style of the Gordon Research Conferences. For more information about the IPCG, please see this link: https://ipcg.info/

The International Polymer Colloid Group (IPCG) was founded in 1972 as a forum for the exchange of ideas and emerging research activities for scientists and engineers from both academia and industry who study or use polymer colloids.

A Graduate Research Seminar (GRS) will also be offered prior to the conference on June 20-22, 2025. It is open for Master students, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows in the broad field of polymer colloids. At the GRS, established senior researchers give lectures on relevant topics in a tutorial style, and the participants will also be able to present their research in short oral presentations as well as posters.
