Welcome to Québec City

Welcome to Québec city, Canada

Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 18th edition of Optics of Liquid Crystals 2019 which will be held for the first time on Canadian soil in beautiful Québec City. The symposium will take place during the pleasant month of September at Hôtel Château Laurier Québec.

Building on the success of past editions, OLC-2019 is a top-level international conference bringing together scientists to share on recent developments in liquid crystal technologies and applications. Industry is more than welcomed to contribute. The conference program will be broad with topics including the discovery, synthesis, modeling and study of new liquid crystalline materials as well as their integration into components and devices with a special focus of biophotonics applications. The primary goal of OLC-2019 is to present state-of-the-art research, recent achievements and global trends in liquid crystal technologies and to promote cross-disciplinary interactions that can spur the development of this exciting materials research field.

Our venue is located in a prime area of Québec City only steps away from most of Québec’s world-class tourism infrastructures: museums, parks, walking tours, boutiques, theaters, concert venues, bars, restaurants, and the historic district of Old Québec, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1985.

The Local organizing committee is preparing an exciting scientific program aiming to bring together scientists and industry specialists from different research fields, which will hopefully foster lucrative information exchange and international collaboration. You are warmly invited to mark those dates on your calendar and we sincerely look forward to welcoming you in Québec City next September.

Tigran Galstian, Université Laval, Québec City and the Organizing Committee
