One day BLCS/SMTG/INI workshop on the molecular modelling and theory of liquid crystals


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

22nd March 2013

Organisers: David Cheung (University of Warwick), Andrew Masters (University of Manchester), Mike Allen (University of Warwick), Mikhail Osipov (University of Strathclyde), Valeriy Slastikov (University of Bristol) and Claudio Zannoni (Università di Bologna)

Workshop Theme

The British Liquid Crystal Society (BLCS), the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group (SMTG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Isaac Newton Institute (INI) will be holding a one day workshop on the molecular modelling and theory of liquid crystals at the Isaac Newton Institute on Friday March 22nd, 2013. This event is part of the INI workshop on Analytical and computational paths from molecular foundations to continuum descriptions that runs between 18 - 22 March, 2013.

The subject matter is molecular-based/statistical mechanical theory and the simulation of liquid crystals, including colloidal liquid crystals.

If you wish to attend this one day session only, please complete an online registration form before 30 November 2012. The Registration fee for this meeting is £20. Payment details will be sent by email once the deadline for registration has passed.

We are soliciting oral presentations, which we expect to be around 20 minutes in length, and poster presentations. We are naturally keen to hear from PhD students and PDRAs as well as more established academics. If you wish to give a talk or present a poster, please indicate this on your registration form and submit a short abstract via the online form by the deadline of 30 November 2012.

If you are registered for the full INI workshop, then there is no extra charge to attend this event.

The full list of speakers will be announced soon after the registration deadline has passed.

We anticipate that this meeting will start around 11:00 and will finish at 17:00.
