Emulsification is a complex process at the interface of chemistry, interface physics and fluid mechanics. The generation of liquid-liquid emulsions, their implementation and their characterization within a reactor is also a strong issue, common to the chemical, petrochemical, nuclear, cosmetics, and food industries.
This conference proposes to bring together researchers from academia and industry involved in emulsions, to provide a forum for exchange and discussion of recent scientific and technological advances in the relevant areas: basic models of rupture / coalescence, Fluids mechanics, characterization techniques, physical chemistry of interfaces.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts in any technical area relevant to this conference.

Deadline for abstract submission is:

April 2nd, 2012

A 2 to 4 pages abstract should be written in English, and returned with the abstract proposition form by electronic mail to:
