BLCS Liquid Crystals Workshop at Hull

The BLCS Liquid Crystals Workshop at Hull will be held from lunchtime Tuesday 5th January 2016 to lunchtime Thursday 7th January 2016. The Workshop is designed for those relatively new to the field of liquid crystals, particularly for PhD students working in liquid crystals and related materials across all areas of science and technology, but also for other researchers in university or industry. Thanks to the generosity of an EPSRC research grant, the Workshop is free of charge for all PhD students registered with a UK university, and the cost for others is relatively inexpensive at 150 pounds (Academic) and 250 pounds (industrial and commercial). Anyone interested please see the website below, and send the appropriate registration form, or an e-mail with the same information, to Mike Hird (
