Overview

Liquid crystal elastomers are an emerging class of soft materials of great scientific and technological importance.  Much of the development of these materials and all previous conferences on this topic have taken place in Europe. The proposed 5th International Liquid Crystal Conference (5th ILCEC) will be first US Conference on this subject.  Its aim is to provide young US researchers with the opportunity to learn about this exciting and promising field and to become involved in LCE research. Success of the 5th ILCEC is seen as key to the successful development and utilization of these emerging complex active materials is the US.
