Abstract : This volume collects the abstracts of the papers submitted (before Easter 1997) at the Ninth International Conference on Surface and Colloid Science (9ICSCS), Sofia, 6 - 12 July 1997. The conference seems to be the greatest worldwide forum in this scientific field and it is organized every three years under the auspices of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Scientists (ACIS). Authors from 50 countries from all over the world have submitted abstracts of papers for presentation at the conference. Almost 1000 papers are distributed in sections according with 10 Focus Areas that include 45 Topics. Most of the papers are included as Keynote Lectures, Oral Presentations and Posters in several sessions of the Conference Program (some of the papers are not in the program since their authors cannot attend the conference). All the abstracts are numbered from 1 to 959. In any code the capital letter refers to the corresponding Focus Area and the last figure is the Topic of that Focus Area. In each Topic the abstracts are located in alphabetic order of the family name of the first author. Also, at the very beginning, the abstracts of six plenary lectures are presented. These abstracts are marked by Roman numerals. We believe that such a great variety of papers provides a well-balanced perspective of the current research over the entire field together with indicating some important open questions.
