Optics of Liquid Crystals 2019

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 18th edition of Optics of Liquid Crystals 2019 (OLC-2019)! The symposium will take place during the pleasant month of September at Hôtel Château Laurier Québec, from September 8 to 13, 2019.

Building on the success of past editions, OLC-2019 is a top-level international conference bringing together scientists to share on recent developments in liquid crystal technologies and applications. Industry is more than welcomed to contribute. The conference program will be broad with topics including the discovery, synthesis, modeling and study of new liquid crystalline materials as well as their integration into components and devices with a special focus of biophotonics applications. The primary goal of OLC-2019 is to present state-of-the-art research, recent achievements and global trends in liquid crystal technologies and to promote cross-disciplinary interactions that can spur the development of this exciting materials research field.

You are warmly invited to mark those dates on your calendar and visit our website to get the list of topics and more information about the event!

We sincerely look forward to welcoming you in Québec City next September.
Tigran Galstian, Université Laval, Québec City and the Organizing Committee


FLC 2019: Frontiers of Chirality and Polarity in Soft Matter

The Soft Materials Research Center at the University of Colorado Boulder is delighted to announce the 17th International Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal Conference, FLC 2019: Frontiers of Chirality and Polarity in Soft Matter.

The conference will take place
Sunday – Wednesday, August 4 – 7, 2019, on the campus of the University of Colorado Boulder. FLC 2019 will feature oral and poster presentations in all areas involving chirality and/or polarity in soft matter. There will also be excursions scheduled for Thursday, August 8, allowing conference participants an opportunity to take advantage of the world class sightseeing and outdoor activities available near Boulder and in the greater Rocky Mountain area.

The conference website: will be live within a week (by 9/19/2018).
