General Informationназад

The First All-Russian Conference on Liquid Crystals will continue the traditional All-Soviet Union Liquid Crystalline Conferences, which started for the first time in Ivanovo and gathered together hundreds of researchers from the former Republics of the Soviet Union and foreign countries. After disintegration of the Soviet Union there were a number of the Conferences and Symposia in Russia, but only on the selected scientific topics concerning liquid crystals and their practical applications. Part of them, such as "Lyotropic Liquid Crystals" and "Chistyakov’s Reading", were held in Ivanovo. The Presidium of the “Russian Liquid Crystalline Society” "Commonwealth" has come to a decision on the resumption of Liquid Crystalline Conferences in Russia.
