Asian Society for Colloid and Surface Science, ASCASS, established on 2004, is going to organize its 8th conference in Kathmandu, Nepal on September 25-28, 2019. Earlier, ASCASS organized its 7th Asian Conference on Colloid and Interface Science on 8-11 August 2017 in Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA. The current president of ASCASS is Professor Toyoko Imae from National Taiwan University, Taiwan.
It is a matter of pride to all Nepalese that an important conference is going to be held in Kathmandu. The blogger likes to thank Dr. Lok Kumar Shrestha, a preeminent Nepali researcher (currently in National Institute for Materials Science, Japan), for his great effort as a key role player in attracting such conference in Nepal. For sure, this conference will entice many researchers in the beautiful city of Kathmandu which will ultimately help in substantial discussions in the field of Colloids and Interface Science. There is no question that the tourism industry in Nepal will flourish.
