Official Information:

The international Liquid Crystal Conferences provides excellent opportunities for sharing new ideas, stimulating discussions, and exchange of information for researchers and engineers in the fields of liquid crystal science and technology. In the 2018 edition, general sessions are associated with traditional liquid crystal science and technology, whereas special sessions should promote interchanges between researchers and engineers working in the field of liquid crystals and other related areas. We also arrange social programs, to include a conference dinner, and some wonderful sightseeing tours in and around Kyoto.
