This and its companion Volumes 2 and 3 document the proceed- ings of the 4th International Symposium on Surfactants in Solution held in Lund, Sweden, June 27-July 2, 1982. This biennial event was christened as the 4th Symposium as this was a continuation of ear- li er conferences dealing with surfactants held in 1976 (Albany) under the title "Micellization, Solubilization, and Microemulsions"; in 1978 (Knoxville) under the title "Solution Chemistry of Surfac- tants"; and in 1980 (Potsdam) where it was dubbed as "Solution Be- bavior of Surfactants: Theoretical and Applied Aspects:' The Pl02 3 ceedings of all these symposia have been properly chronicled. ' , The Lund Symposium was bi lIed as "Surfactants in Solution" as both the aggregation and adsorption aspects of surfactants were covered, and furthermore we were interested in a general title which could be used for future conferences in this series.
As these biennial events bave become a weIl recognized forum for bringing together researchers with varied interests in the arena of surfactants, so it is amply vindicated to continue these, and the next meeting is planned for July 9-13, 1984 in Bordeaux, France under the cochair- manship of K. L. Mittal and P. Bothorel. The venue for 1986 is still open, although India, inter alia, is a good possibility. Apropos, we would be delighted to entertain suggestions regarding where and when these biennial symposia should be held in the future and you may direct your response to Kk~.
