37th conference of
it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 37th Conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS 2023) that will take place from 3rd to 8th September 2023 in Naples (Italy).
ECIS 2023 is organized by the University of Naples Federico II and CSGI, under the auspices of ECIS, bringing together participants working in the interdisciplinary field of colloid and interface science, with a broad background ranging from chemistry to physics, from biology to engineering.
The scientific program will include plenary and keynote invited lectures, oral presentations and posters, consisting of four parallel sessions.
The venue is the Stazione Marittima, located close to the Maschio Angioino Castle and the very heart of the historical centre of Naples.
Complementing the scientific program, a diverse social program will offer to participant the the possibility to discover the beauties and the historical and cultural gems spread in and around the city of Naples.
We look forward to your venue in Naples

University of Strasbourg
Paolo Samorì is Distinguished Professor at the University of Strasbourg and Director of the Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS). His current research interests comprise supramolecular chemistry, responsive interfaces, 2D materials and development high-performance multifunctional materials and (nano)devices for energy, sensing and optoelectronic applications.
Imperial College London
Prof Molly M Stevens FREng FRS is Professor of Biomedical Materials and Regenerative Medicine and the Research Director for Biomedical Material Sciences in the Department of Materials, in the Department of Bioengineering and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. She graduated with a First-Class Honours BPharm degree from Bath University in 1995 and a PhD from the University of Nottingham in 2001. After postdoctoral research in the Langer Lab at MIT, she joined Imperial College London in 2004 as a lecturer and was promoted to Professor in 2008 as one of the youngest Professors ever in the history of the institution.
Molly’s multidisciplinary research balances the investigation of fundamental science with the development of technology to address some of the major healthcare challenges. Her work has been instrumental in elucidating the bio-material interfaces. She has created a broad portfolio of designer biomaterials for applications in disease diagnostics and regenerative medicine. Her substantial body of work influences research groups around the world (>400 publications, h-index 98, >39k citations, 2018 and 2021 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher in Cross-Field research).
Molly holds numerous leadership positions including Director of the UK Regenerative Medicine Platform "Smart Acellular Materials" Hub, Deputy Director of the EPSRC IRC in Early-Warning Sensing Systems for Infectious Diseases and Scientist Trustee of the National Gallery. She is Fellow of the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK), Foreign Member of the National Academy of Engineering (USA) and International Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Science.
Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden
Brigitte Voit is Head of the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research (IPF) Dresden as well as full professor for "Organic Chemistry of Polymers“ at Technische Universität Dresden. Her scientific interest is in functional polymer architectures and responsive polymers for e.g. biomedicine, smart systems and organic electronics.
