Introduction

Morito Hall

We are pleased to announce the 6th Japanese–Italian Workshop on Liquid Crystals, which will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from July 25 to 27, 2012. The meeting will be organized by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) 142nd Committee and the Japanese Liquid Crystal Society (JLCS) in collaboration with the Italian Liquid Crystal Society (SICL).
The aim of the Workshop is to bring together members of two communities of Japan and Italy for a presentation and discussion of recent results in the liquid crystal research. We hope that the Workshop will enhance exchange and scientific cooperation between Japan and Italy in the innovative areas of liquid crystal science and technology.
The format of the workshop will be based on a number of invited talks of leading Japanese and Italian scientists. In addition there will be the opportunity for other participants to present their latest results as posters.
