We invite you to provide presentation contributions in areas where interfaces are an important component of minerals or materials processing. Research related to flotation, dewatering, flocculation, and filtration, either as fundamental studies or with applications to industry (such as mineral processing, pigments, ceramics, wastewater) are particularly relevant. Advanced materials such as hybrid organic/inorganic, functional materials and materials produced by self assembly are also of interest. The theme is also interested in presentations related to advanced techniques for the characterisation of mineral and material processes, surfaces and the study of relevant interfacial interactions.
