Two-day conference on cholesteric lyotropic liquid crystals

On May 10-12, 2017, the Experimental Soft Matter Physics Group (headed by Jan Lagerwall) and the Theory of Soft Condensed Matter Group (headed by Tanja Schilling) of the University of Luxembourg are organizing Twisted, a focused conference on the physics, chemistry and applications of cholesteric lyotropic liquid crystals developing in colloidal suspensions of chiral nanorods. The conference is motivated by the rapidly growing interest in liquid crystals formed by nanocrystals of cellulose or chitin, filamentous viruses, carbon nanotubes and similar rod-like nanoparticles. Some of the world's leading researchers in the field are coming to Luxembourg for this two-day meeting, which will give an excellent view of the state of the art of research in the field. You can read more about the conference on its website: www.twisted.lcsoftmatter.com.

Welcome to our new website!

After months of hard work, we are pleased to welcome you to the newly redesigned website of the International Liquid Crystal Society. The website has been created by our webmaster - Mateusz Mrukiewicz.

Here are just some of the features we’d like to highlight:
  • The website is fully responsive, therefore it is much easier to use on mobile devices and tablets.
  • Visit the new Art Contest section gallery with beautiful liquid crystal pictures.
  • Find all the liquid crystal related events and submit your events as well.
  • Check out the Education section. Here you will find interesting teaching sources, e.g. books, web tutorials, education programs, and videos.
  • You can find the information about the research groups around the world led by ILCS members, just visit the Research Groups section.

This is the first stage of the changes and the work will continue to improve and develop our new site. We encourage you to explore the new site, although much has changed, all of the resources that we have created over the years are still part of the site.

We hope you enjoy the new look, please let us know what you think by sending an email. If you need assistance finding anything, please contact us.

Of course, please do share the news about our wonderful new site!
