Welcome

Welcome to the 45th German Liquid Crystal Conference in Luxembourg (Arbeitstagung Flüssigkristalle der DFKG), a two-day conference on the physics, chemistry, applications or any other aspects of liquid crystals, to be held at the University of Luxembourg, March 21-23, 2018. While organized within the framework of the German Liquid Crystal Society, the conference is open to participants from all countries. Because the conference is organized in Luxembourg this year, we reach out particularly to groups in Belgium (B) and the Netherlands (NL), which currently have no national liquid crystal conference, as well as to France (F; with no intention to compete with the French liquid crystal/soft matter meeting).

This year we precede the conference with a short focus session on Liquid Crystal Elastomer Research in Europe, in the morning of Wednesday 21.03.2018, 8:45-13:00.

Because of the international scope, the conference language is English, although student presentations in German are accepted (but discouraged).
