96th ACS Colloid and Surface Science Symposium

Colorado School of Mines

Golden, Colorado

July 10-13, 2022

Join us for the 96th Annual Colloid and Surface Science Symposium

Golden, Colorado, located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, is the home of the Colorado School of Mines, the National Renewable Engineering Laboratory, and the Coors Brewery, one of the largest brewing facilities in the world. It has plenty of good restaurants, multiple microbreweries within walking distance, and is a 20-minute drive from downtown Denver. A short 15-minute drive from the famed Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, Golden is the closest point in the Denver/Boulder metro area to mountain destinations with miles of hiking trails for all levels. It is serviced by Denver International airport, the 20th-busiest airport in the world and the 5th-busiest in the United States.


While organizing a number of technical sessions that are of typical interest in this symposium, this conference will feature three particular areas that tie strongly with Colorado: “Surface Science in Catalysis and Energy Research”, “Colloids in Environmental Science”, and “Biomedical Applications of Colloids”. CSM’s partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus, and various industrial consortia will foster networking of researchers from academia, national laboratories, and industry.
