Date for the diary: 2023 British Liquid Crystal Society Meeting for Early-Stage Researchers

We are pleased to announce that a one-day meeting will be held at the University of Birmingham on 20 June 2023 on the theme of “Liquid-Crystal Research in the 2020s”. The meeting, supported by the British Liquid Crystal Society (BLCS),  is intended for early-stage researchers, primarily for PhD students, but also for post-doctoral research associates and researchers in industry, who are relatively new to the field of liquid-crystal research, irrespective of their academic disciplines.

In the absence of the BLCS Annual Training Workshop this year in the traditional format, some introductory materials for education and training will be made available to the participants on an online platform before the one-day meeting for a limited period. The one-day meeting (from 11 am to 5 pm) will provide opportunities for presenting posters and networking.

Confirmed speakers include:

  1. Helen Gleeson | University of Leeds
  2. Mark R. Wilson | Durham University
  3. Dr Guy Bryan-Brown | New Vision Display
  4. Jon Preece | University of Birmingham and ChromaTwist

Expressions of interest in the prescribed format (see the next page) are currently invited for attending this one-day meeting in June. Please email your expression of interest to by 9 June 2023. Please send your expression of interest as soon as possible – places are limited.

Accepted participants will be notified shortly after the deadline. There are no registration fees for accepted participants.
