Second International Workshop on
Liquid Crystalline Elastomers


Bleibach im Elztal


September 25 - 27,  2003

Abstracts and list of participants


After the successful first Workshop on LC Elastomers at the Ebernburg in September 2001 we decided to organize a second one. The Workshop will bring together scientist from physics, macromolecular chemistry, chemical engineering and applied science interested and experienced in LC Elastomers addressing the issues both experimentally and theoretically. The number of participants will be strictly limited to 50 (acceptance according to the registration date).


The scientific program will be composed of lectures and posters, the latter introduced by short statements. There will be ample time for discussions. The program starts on Thursday morning (arrival on Wednesday afternoon) and concludes on Saturday noon.
