The Workshop will consist of 5 working days with 12-13 lecturers.
The number of participants will be limited to about 50 to allow ample chances to take part in full to the proceedings and discussions of the Conference.
Tentatively the following topics will be covered:
Description of defects in liquid crystals
Simulation methodologies and computational advances
Mathematical models for the dynamics of defects
Lattice Spin Models
Non equilibrium molecular dynamics
Microstructures in liquid crystalline polymers
Colloidal inclusions in nematics
Liquid crystal cells
