On behalf of the Taiwan Liquid Crystal Society, we are pleased to welcome you to the third Asian Conference on Liquid Crystals (ACLC 2017) to be held at the National Cheng Kung University in Tainan, Taiwan, 13–15 February, 2017. (http://aclc2017.conf.tw/site/Page.aspx?pid=901&sid=1102&lang=en).
Following the first ACLC, held in Japan, and the second in Korea, the conference continuously aims to foster the growth of research in liquid crystal science and technology and its benefits to the community at large. We hope that ACLC 2017 will provide a great platform for academic and industry professionals to have fruitful discussions and to exchange new ideas of recent developments and latest advances in the interdisciplinary field. It is our pleasure to announce the supportive participation of leading academics and researchers, in their respective areas of focus, from various countries, not only in, but also beyond Asia. We invite you to participate in this conference by submitting a paper reflecting your current research and to excel in liquid-crystal-related R&D worldwide.
Participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Crystals.
Prof. Dr. Wei Lee
