The 10th International Symposium on Electrokinetic Phenomena (ELKIN 10th)

Electrokinetics inNano, Bio, and Environmental Sciences

Soft interface, fundamental to application


Tsukuba University

Tsukuba, JAPANMay 20-24, 2012


The ELKIN is a forum for the discussion of new advances in theoretical and applied electrokinetics. The conference is held biannual inside and outside Europe. Although electrokinetics is and remains the central theme of the meetings, the emphasis may change from one meeting to the other. Topics covered by the symposia include:

basic principles of electrokinetic phenomena

electrokinetics of complex surfaces

electrokinetics of low dielectric fluids

electrokinetic self-assembly

AC electrokinetics /microfluidics

environmental electrokinetics / electrokinetics at biointerfaces


Electrokinetics is one of the oldest branches of colloid science. It dates back to Reuss, who in 1809 published a paper on migration phenomena in suspensions of clay particles under the influence of an applied electric field.

The paper was written in French and submitted to a Russian journal, located in Moscow, several years before Napoleon got there. This event is now almost two centuries ago, but the field of electrokinetics is still very much alive. Specialized conferences in the field of electrokinetics are more recent.

The first zeta potential symposia took place in Germany and Austria in the seventies and eighties of the past century. At that time contacts across the Iron Curtain were difficult and only a few representatives from the East and West could be present, so the meetings remained rather local.

The first international symposium with participants from many countries took place in Granada, Spain, 1993.

At that occasion an International Advisory Board was established of which the main task was to promote the continuation of these conferences and control their quality. After Granada, ELKIN conferences have taken place in different countries inside and outside Europe. Since 1998 the conferences are held biannually.

Tsukuba meeting will focus on the soft interface, the relation between fundamental and application (industry & environment). It will be also important for the new organization in the Asian countries including, Australia and New Zealand.
