Welcome to the website of Liquids 2017, the 10th Liquid Matter Conference, organized jointly by the Jožef Stefan Institute and the University of Ljubljana in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The conference will be held from July 17 through 21 2017 at the Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The purpose of the conference is to review recent advances in experimental, theoretical, and applied studies in the liquid state of matter, bringing together researchers working in the physics and chemistry of liquids as well as in several closely related fields such as soft condensed matter and biophysics. The 10th Liquid Matter Conference is a Europhysics Conference.

The conference will open Monday morning July 17 2017 and close around lunchtime on Friday July 21 2017. The conference will consist of plenary lectures and of topical symposia including keynote lectures, contributed oral presentations, and poster sessions.

Liquids Art Contest

Scientific research frequently yields aestetically pleasing images, with complex material properties reflecting in fascinating patterns and colors. Such images are sometimes accepted by journals as cover art, but also deserve appreciation on their own.
