The 'New frontiers in anisotropic fluid-particles composites' conference will take place from 28 to 29 June 2012 in Buckinghamshire, UK.

Anisotropy is the property of being directionally dependent, as opposed to isotropy, which implies identical properties in all directions. It can be defined as a difference, when measured along different axes, in a material's physical or mechanical properties.

The conference will cover two areas of research: isotropic particles in anisotropic liquid crystals and colloidal liquid crystals (clay platelets or carbon nanotubes in isotropic fluids for example). These two subjects are rich in complex science and have substantial applications potential ranging from e-inks through to biofluidics.For further information, please visit: http://royalsociety.org/events/2012/anisotropic-fluid-particle/
