Following the tradition of the Arbeitstagung Flüssigkristalle, the German Liquid Crystal Conference 2019 will be held at the University of Paderborn. International contributions related to ordered fluids and self-organized soft matter are welcome, and in particular students and young researchers are encouraged to present their work. The conference language is English. (As an exception, presentations in German language may be tolerated.)
Paderborn has evolved from an old medieval town to a vibrant university city with several industrial enter-prises in the fields of information technology and transportation. It thus spans ancient history, science and modern technology. The city with its population of 145,000 lies at the spring of the Pader river, the shortest river in Germany. The surrounding hills of the Teutoburg Forest offer an excellent recreation area.With a student population of more than 17,600, the teaching and research profile offered by the University's five faculties incorporates a broad and diverse range of subjects, covering the arts and humanities, economics and business administration, natural sciences and Engineering.
