18th International Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal Conference - Polarity and Chirality in Soft Matter

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Is it our great pleasure to invite you all to participate in the 18th International Conference on Ferroelectric Liquid Crystals – Polarity and Chirality in Soft Matter, which will be held from 6th to 10th of September 2021 in Ljubljana (Slovenia).

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Ljubljana. The conference will take place regardless of the Covid-19 pandemic situation: preferably in person, alternatively with streaming option for those who will not be able to travel, or, in the unfortunate case that the pandemic will not allow us to meet in person, the conference will be held fully online.

Main topics of the FLC2021 include: Synthesis and design of polar and chiral liquid crystals, Structures of polar and chiral mesophases, Polar nematic liquid crystals, Simulation, modelling and theory, Physical properties of polar and chiral liquid crystals, Ferroelectric and ferromagnetic soft matter, Colloidal polar systems, Twist-bend phases, Liquid crystals and biology as well as Applications of polar and chiral liquid crystals.

We are happy to inform you that the web page for the Conference is already available:


where information regarding the invited speakers, registration, abstract submission, conference venue and important dates will be available. Abstract submission will open on the 1st of February 2021.

Together with this mail you can also find attached the First Circular. We would be grateful if you would print it out and post the attached flyer to help publicize the conference.

With best regards,
Alenka Mertelj
Conference Chair on behalf of the Organizing Committee.
