The purpose of this biennial conference is to bring together the research community working in the interdisciplinary field of Liquid Crystals and soft anisotropic materials. The conference will be held from September 22-27, 2013 in the Paradise Mare Hotel, a five star resort, in Rhodes, Greece.
The island of Rhodes is located in the eastern Aegean Sea. Rhodes is the largest island in the Dodecanese. Its capital city, located at its northern tip, is the capital of the Prefecture, with the Medieval Town in its centre. In 1988 the Medieval Town was designated as a World Heritage City. The Medieval Town of Rhodes is the result of different architectures belonging to various historic eras, predominantly those of the Knights of St. John. In addition, Rhodes is an excellent starting point for a tour of the Aegean islands.
Rhodes is well connected with other major Greek cities and islands as well as with major European capitals and cities via charter flights. Diagoras Airport in Rhodes (RHO), one of the largest in Greece, is the main entrance/exit point for both locals and tourists.
