2016 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit: Symposium SM1: Liquid Crystalline Materials—Displays and Beyond
2016-03-28 to 2016-04-01
Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Liquid crystals are the pervasive display technology in devices ranging from wristwatches to ultra-high resolution televisions. In the last century, this special class of matter has made a remarkable transition from scientific curiosity to ubiquitous to everyday life. The distinctive properties that enable the utility of liquid crystals in displays has also motivated extensive research relating to the general topics of optics (photonics), mechanics, and biomedicine. The utilization of liquid crystals in these areas are examining a diverse range of materials including low-molar mass, polymeric, and composites thereof and range from molecular synthesis to device physics. The goal of this symposium is to contextualize recent advances in liquid crystalline materials with a particular emphasis on research extending the utility of these materials beyond displays into applications such as artificial muscles, microfluidics (lab on chip), chem-bio sensors, optical elements, nanofabrication, smart windows, metamaterials, mechanical actuators, and energy saving/generation/harvesting. link

BCA Spring Meeting 2016
2016-04-04 to 2016-04-07
The University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK

With the 2nd century of X-ray diffraction now well underway, the BCA 2016 Spring Meeting programme will take stock of the current state-of-the-art and continue to look towards the future.

The Programme Committee have been working hard, and we already have the majority of Plenary and several Keynote speakers in place, spanning a diverse range of subject matter across the four subject groups. The 2016 BCA Prize Lecture will be given by Professor Christer Aakeröy and the Lonsdale Lecture by Professor Arwen Pearson.

The meeting will follow a similar session format to last year, with Plenaries for each subject group, parallel sessions and a range of Workshops, allowing plenty of choice for delegates. Each of the parallel sessions will incorporate a Keynote plus three, rather than two, contributed lectures, in order to allow more opportunities for speakers, in particular younger colleagues.

If your talk doesn’t fit with the proposed Group Sessions, don’t panic! There will be an additional ‘Ad hoc’ session, with content to be chosen from submitted abstracts. Further information, including key dates, scientific programme etc. will be added as things progress.

On behalf of the Programme Committee and Organisers I’d like to welcome you to Nottingham, and look forward to a feast of world-class crystallography!
