BLCS Young Researcher Meeting

Monday, 11 September 2017


This one-day conference will be the first, hopefully of a series of many, where early stage researchers in liquid crystal sciences can come together to present their work and cultivate a network of contacts. The intention of the BLCS in running this meeting is to provide young scientists a forum in which to practice their presentation skills in an informal and friendly environment.

We welcome those at all stages in their career to attend, as an opportunity to learn of the current research being done by PhDs and PDRAs over multiple interconnected disciplines, and to potentially meet the future stars of liquid crystal research.

We are delighted to have Prof. Helen Gleeson of Leeds university to deliver our plenary lecture. Anyone who has seen Helen speak before knows she is not to be missed!

Abstracts for oral presentations, no longer than one A4 page, to be sent by email to, quoting “BLCS Young Researcher Meeting” in the subject line, no later than 28/08/2017. Successful applicants will be notified by 01/09/2017. Note: abstract submission is performed separately to registration to attend, with a registration deadline of 04/09/2017.
