The next workshop in the British Liquid Crystal Society (BLCS) Annual Training Workshops series will be held on an online platform on 7-8 January 2021.
The two-day event will include a mixture of “live” and pre-recorded lectures, discussion hours and modelling training sessions, and a mini-symposium. The workshop is intended for early-stage researchers (primarily PhD students, but also post-doctoral research associates and researchers in industry, relatively new to the field of liquid-crystal research, irrespective of their academic disciplines). The workshop when held in traditional setup can offer only limited number of places.
