Three members of the Steel Research Hub presented their research at the 2015 Symposium of the Australasian Colloid and Interface Society (ACIS) held in early February. Professor Irene Yarovsky, Associate Professor Michael Higgins and Dr Paul Molino all made presentations at the biannual event, which was also sponsored by the Steel Research Hub in 2015. Over 160 delegates from all over Australia and the world attended the Symposium, which was held over five days, in Hobart Tasmania. This international conference provided an excellent opportunity for colloid, surface and interface scientists to meet and discuss recent developments in their areas of research. Prof. Yarovsky, A/Prof. Higgins and Dr Molino are all contributing to projects within the Steel Research Hub examining antimicrobial coatings for steel surfaces.
