The 16th International Conference on the Science and Technology of Adhesion and Adhesives continues the success of meetings that have been held since 1980, and will be hosted in Oxford, England.

Held every three or four years since 1980, the international conference will provide an opportunity for the world’s adhesives and adhesion community to meet, present and discuss the latest science and technological advancements within the fields of adhesion and adhesives; from nanotechnology applications to environmental and ecological aspects.

The scientific committee, which is drawn from specialists well-known to the international adhesion community and is chaired by Ambrose Taylor, will offer a mix of presentations chosen from peer-reviewed abstracts on all aspects of the science and technology of adhesion and adhesives.   As in previous conferences, the Wake Memorial Lecture will form the centrepiece of the conference.​
