# I-CAMP 2013 : Summer School on Liquid Crystals

Created: | 2013-07-05 08:14 |
---|---|

Institution: | Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences |

Description: | The I-CAMP'13 school took the form of a summit, bringing together prominent scientists as well as students and postdoctoral fellows. It provided education for young scientists working in the fields of liquid crystal materials science, optics, photonics, mathematics, biophysics, nanoscience, and related fields. The goal was to prepare the participants for research at the frontiers of science and technology by providing an interdisciplinary expert training not easily available within the traditional system of graduate education and postdoctoral apprenticeship. The meeting also explored current state and emerging new research frontiers. The focus was on recent advances at the interface between liquid crystal physics and optics that promise to open up conceptually novel directions of research. Participants working at the forefronts of materials science, nanoscience, and optics discussed the emerging uses of light for control and study of liquid crystal materials as well as the advances in the use of these materials to control light. By bringing together both prominent & junior scientists to Cambridge, I-CAMP'13 school also allowed them to combine advanced education with learning about different cultures worldwide and history of science.
