The International Liquid Crystal Elastomers Conference (ILCEC) will be held from October 16 – 18, 2017, at Rice University in Houston, TX. ILCEC 2017 will bring together chemists, physicists, and engineers to share both fundamental advances and discuss application opportunities for this exciting class of materials. The conference will focus on recent advances including reconfigurable network chemistries, localization of mechanical properties, advances in theory and simulation, and material physics. Contributions from related topics in stimuli-responsive materials are also welcomed (shape-programmable materials, click chemistry, mechanics of materials). We hope you will consider joining us in Houston!
