Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you all to come for the 16 th Topical Meeting on the Optics of Liquid Crystals to be held in Sopot from 13 to 18 September 2015. 

The Local Organizing Committee is currently working on scientific programme of prominent presentations which will be given by leading scientists from around the world dealing with liquid crystals. We are also planning an exciting social programme, to include a conference dinner with traditional Polish cuisine, a bonfire, and some wonderful sightseeing tours in and around Sopot.

Sopot a seaside city and spa resort is a tourist destination which together with neighboring Gdańsk and Gdynia forms the Tri-City conurbation with a population of over one million. A wooden pier, stretching from the middle of Sopot beach into the Gdańska Gulf (511,5m) is the longest one in Europe. This famous pier located in front of the Conference venue is a popular venue for recreational and health walks.  Sopot has many fine villas from the 19th and 20th centuries built in the Art Nouveau style or eclectic.  15 minutes by train you can visit Gdańsk - City of Solidarity - the place where restoration in Europe began (at the time of the conference  will be organized tour to Gdańsk). 

Above all, we hope that the conference will provide possibility of meetings and many discussions during the meeting and shared accompanying events. It will be also a great opportunity for participants to meet with each other, to build friendships, exchange of experiences, and contribute to lively discussions in the field of liquid crystals science and technology in optics, photonics and displays..
