We are happy to announce the 47th German Liquid Crystal Conference

(47. Arbeitstagung Flüssigkristalle)

which will be organised in 2020 together with the Polish Liquid Crystal Society as a German-Polish Liquid Crystal Conference.The conference will take place in Magdeburg, at the Festung Mark from Tuesday, March 24 to Friday, March 27, 2020.

This conference continues the tradition of bringing together researchers from various fields of liquid crystal soft matter and beyond. The German Topical Meeting on Liquid Crystals has long become an international-scale workshop promoting an exchange of views among scientists working with Soft Matter and, in particular, liquid crystals. It became a tradition to organise the German LC Conference in collaboration with Liquid Crystal societies of other countries. This time, we are bringing together the most advanced researchers from Poland and Germany in a joint effort.

The activities at the meeting will consist of a few invited lectures from distinguished international scientists, and oral presentation and posters mainly from young researchers. Diverse topics cover a wide range of chemistry, physics, and application technologies of thermotropic and lyotropic liquid crystals.
