The attached PDF file contains the program for the upcoming Gordon 
Research Conference on Colloidal, Macromolecular, and Polyelectrolyte 
Solutions that will be held February 6-10, 2000 at the Harbortown 
Resort in Ventura, California. The detailed program along with 
registration information is also available at: 
http://www.grc.uri.edu/programs/2000/colloid.htm The web program will 
be updated as needed with any changes or additions.

 From its first meeting in 1982, this interdisciplinary conference has 
brought together leading academic and industrial researchers working 
on macromolecular solutions, including: colloids, polyelectrolytes, 
biophysical systems, block copolymers, microemulsions, liquid 
crystals, etc. One strength of the meeting is demonstrated in its 
tradition of bringing together the latest of both experiment and 
theory. Nearly every meeting has served to introduce at least one new 
experimental method to the community, often involving scattering 
techniques but also including rheology, surface science, optical 
tweezers, NMR, and electrophoresis. Likewise the focused interaction 
between experiment, simulation, and theory at this conference has 
always produced at least one memorable debate, and more importantly 
has led to many lasting collaborations. Meeting participants wishing 
to present posters should provide a title, author and affiliation 
list to the conference Vice Chair, Alice Gast, at 

The fixed fee (including registration, meals, and lodging) for the 
conference is $655 per person, double occupancy after the discount 
for early registration (registration postmarked 3 weeks prior to the 

Some limited funds are available from the conference to support 
attendance by students. To request support, register with the GRC and 
send a request to the conference Chair at eric.amis@nist.gov by 
January 15, 2000.
