Latest News

Welcome to the Asian Conference on Liquid Crystals

  On behalf of LC scientists and engineers in Japan, I am pleased to announce the first Asian conference on Liquid Crystals. As we all know, most of Liquid Crystal displays have been produced in Asia. In addition, a variety of breakthroughs in LC science have also emerged from Asia. In such circumstances, it is surely a good idea to strengthen our partnership to further develop science and application of LCs toward our bright future.
  Based on such consideration, we decided to organize this conference. We sincerely welcome all of you to Fuji-Yoshida, Japan.

Hideo Takezoe, Chair of ACLC2012

Greetings on behalf of the Japanese Liquid Crystal Society

  It is my great pleasure to inform you about the 1st Asian Conference on Liquid Crystals. The conference covers wide research fields from traditional topics to modern science and technology of liquid crystals.
  I am looking forwards to seeing you at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan on coming December.

Naotake Nakamura, Co-chair of ACLC2012

Aim & Scope

  In the first decade of this century, we have seen a variety of new aspects emerging in liquid crystal studies, particularly with nanotechnology evolutions. In these new fields of liquid crystal studies, we can find a lot is growing in Asia. Nowadays, it is getting more important to promote our partnership and a conference where people can share the time and space together to make something fruitful.
  In order to attain this aim, latest results in research are presented by oral and poster presentations for the topics of science and technology shown in "Topics" page.


  The official language of the conference is English.

Mt. Fuji
The picture of Mt. Fuji as shown above was taken by The Chair, Hideo Takezoe on one peaceful day in the end of November, when he stayed at Fuji Calm on the occasion of Tokyo Tech's student training camp.

Poster Award for young researcher

  The Best Poster Awards will be given for the best poster presentations at the conference for young researchers (students or postdoctoral). Applicants should be marked entry for poster award at the abstract submission form. The decision will be made by a board of referees and the awards be presented at the end of the conference.
