Biaxial Nematic Liquid Crystals

October 27, 2008 – October 28, 2008

Location: Kent State University, Ohio

http://biaxialsymp.lci.kent.edu/

Organizers: David Allender, Kent State; Satyendra Kumar; S. Sprunt, D. Finotello, O. Lavrentovich, Q. Li, and A. Jakli

The field of biaxial thermotropic liquid crystals has seen a rapid resurgence with the recent discovery of its existence in bent-core, tetrapodic, and polymeric mesogens and in mixtures of rods and discs. This Symposium will assess where the field stands, identify the important questions to address, research directions to take, and provide opportunities to renew or establish productive collaborations.

There is no registration fee. Partial travel support for invited speakers and young researchers may be available. To submit an abstract contact the symposium chair.
