Welcome to BePCIS

BePCIS is a voluntary non-profit organization. Our aim is to form a living association of scientists from academia and industry.

As a member, you’ll be informed of all our activities and you’ll have direct access to a network of colleagues.



Course announcement: “Dispersions and Emulsions: Formation, Stabilisation and Characterisation”

Date: April 10-12, 2018.

Venue: Het Pand – Ghent, Belgium.

In this 3 day course we will give a good overview of the fundamentals of colloid chemistry, covering steric & electrostatic stabilisation and flocculation by polymers & polyelectrolytes.  Beyond the colloid theory, we will also go through the practical aspects of dispersing/emulsification technology, including the choice of dispersants, surfactants and emulsifier agents.  The course will also cover the most recent characterisation methods and instruments, including particle sizing, zeta-potential and rheology measurements.

An update of the program and practical information can be found on Courses page.


Symposium announcement: “Ultra Clean Processing of Semiconductor Surfaces (UCPSS)”

Date: September 2-5, 2018.

Venue: KU Leuven Hallen – Leuven, Belgium.

The goal of the UCPSS symposium is to increase the level of understanding on ultra-clean processing and surface preparation technology in all steps of the fabrication of ICs, PV-modules and bioelectronics devices. The conference consists of invited presentations, as well as selected contributing presentations and posters. More information can be found here.
