Experimental Soft Matter Physics

We hosted the TWISTED Conference!


On May 10-12, 2017, our ESMP group and the Theory of Soft Condensed Matter Group (headed by Prof. Tanja Schilling) organized and held the Twisted Conference, bringing together many of the leaders, and newcomers, in the CNC and lyotropic liquid crystal fields. There were plenty of useful and interesting discussions on the physics, applications, and chemistry of cholesteric LC phases developing in colloidal suspensions of chiral nanorods. We thank all of the participants for actively engaging in our 2nd (ever!) conference we hosted. Another success Happy

TWISTED - a 2-day conference on cholesteric lyotropic liquid crystals

On May 10-12, 2017, the Experimental Soft Matter Physics Group and the Theory of Soft Condensed Matter Group (headed by Prof. Tanja Schilling) are organizing Twisted, a focused conference on the physics, chemistry and applications of cholesteric lyotropic liquid crystals developing in colloidal suspensions of chiral nanorods. The conference is motivated by the rapidly growing interest in liquid crystals formed by nanocrystals of cellulose or chitin, filamentous viruses, carbon nanotubes and similar rod-like nanoparticles. We are proud to announce that we are bringing some of the world's leading researchers in the field to Luxembourg for this two-day meeting, which will give an excellent view of the state of the art of research in the field.

TEDxSNUSuwon 16.11.2013

On Saturday 16th of November 2013 the GSCST and AICT will be hosting the first Korean TEDx event targeted towards an international audience: TEDxSNUSuwon. All talks will be delivered in English and the web site will be translated to multiple languages (at the time of writing this, English, German, Swedish and Finnish are active, the other languages will be added soon). The theme of the event is “Convergence” and we will have an awesome line-up of scientists, artists and performers active in Korea. Check out the web site for more information, and become a fan of the TEDxSNUSuwon Facebook page!
