This Conference will be an opportunity for researchers active in the many fields of surface and colloid science related to environmental issues, to get together in a friendly and constructive atmosphere in Lleida, just at one hour by fast train from Barcelona.

The 9th International Conference on Interfaces against Pollution (IAP) in Lleida, continues the series of conferences initiated in Wageningen (The Netherlands, 1997), and followed by Miskolc (Hungary, 2002), Jülich (Germany, 2004), Granada (Spain, 2006), Kyoto (Japan, 2008), Beijing (China, 2010), Nancy (France, 2012) and Leeuwarden (Netherlands, 2014). See web of last Conference in IAP2014.
