It is with great regret that the committee has decided to close the UKPCF.
The UKPCF has been in existence for over 20 years with the primary aim of progressing knowlege in all aspects of polymer colloids by discussion, collaboration and education. It is pleasing to note that this aim has been consistently achieved, largely through the 17 conferences that the UKPCF has organised or part-organised.
The committee of the UKPCF would like to thank the many people who have been involved with the UKPCF, past and present, for their help and support
The residual funds have been passed to Macro Group UK*, where they will be used to to continue the Ottewill Award in memory of Prof. Ron Ottewill. Details of the award will be announced by Macro Group during 2016.
* Macro Group UK is a joint interest group of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Chemical Industry that represents interests of the UK polymer chemistry community both nationally and internationally (see www.macrogroup.org.uk)
