Scientific Program

The conference is devoted to research on molecular materials, i.e. liquid crystals, glass formers, molecular magnets and nanomagnets, molecular layered systems, polymers, as well as biology-oriented and advanced materials for applications.
Structure, dynamics, relaxation, magnetism, acoustics and other properties, as probed by various techniques within a broad range of time- and length-scales will be dicussed.
We plan 4 key lectures (40 minutes), 18 invited talks (30 minutes), 30 oral presentations (20 minutes) - discussion included. Poster sessions will be also arranged.
