28th International Liquid Crystal Conference

24 - 29 July 2022, Lisbon, Portugal



International Liquid Crystal Conference, ILCC, meetings, have been held biennially under the sponsorship of the International Liquid Crystal Society since 1965. Postponed due to the pandemic, the 202 conference will be an excellent inclusive opportunity to discuss current issues and challenges, to support and appreciate the achievements of early-career researchers and young students.
