Chemistry, Physics and Applications
18 – 23 September, 2016
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are delighted to invite you all to come for the XXI Conference on Liquid Crystals to be held in Krynica-Zdrój (Poland) from 18th of September (Sunday) to 23td of September (Friday) 2016 in hotel “Krynica” (www.hotelkrynica.eu) in Krynica-Zdrój (400km from Warsaw).
The conference has been held every two years for 40 years. Since 1994 the conference has become the main forum for presentation and discussion of recent development in the field of liquid crystal research and technology of the region of East, West and Central Europe.
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 Krynica-Zdrój.
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.

INFORMATION : HOW TO GET TO KRYNICA ZDRÓJ?
Krynica Zdrój is located in the south of Poland in the Beskid mountains (coordinates for GPS: 49°24′42″N 20°57′18″E). It is popular tourist resort, which it is known as a health resort and winter sport destination.
Buying a ticket, remember that the conference takes place in the town of KRYNICA ZDRÓJ (be aware, that in Poland there are several towns called “Krynica”, for example “Krynica Morska”).
In Poland there are several airports having international connections. For the participants of the conference the most important are:
Cracow Balice Airport (KRK);
Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW);
Warsaw Modlin Airport (WMI).
from Cracow Balice Airport (KRK) to Krynica Zdrój:
From the Cracow Balice Airport to the Cracow Main Railway Station leaves a train every 30 minutes – a single ticket costs 8 PLN (2 €), travel time is about 20 minutes (http://rozklad-pkp.pl/en).
From the bus station next to the Cracow Main Railway Station (Kraków Główny) to Krynica Zdrój leaves bus “Szwagropol” every one hour – a ticket costs 22 PLN (5 €), travel time is 3 hours (http://www.szwagropol.pl/pl/linie-autobusowe/rozklad-jazdy).
Starting point of “Szwagropol” buses to Krynica- Zdrój at the vicinity of the Cracow Main Railway Station (Kraków Główny) is at the Bosacka str. and is called “Kraków MDA” (http://www.mda.malopolska.pl/en.home.html).
from Warsaw to Krynica Zdrój:
From Warsaw Chopin Airport to Warsaw Central Railway Station leaves train KM9 or S3 or taxi or bus - number 175 - (http://warszawa.jakdojade.pl/?locale=en).
From Warsaw Modlin Airport to Warsaw Centrum Palace of Culture and Science (Warszawa Centrum Pałac Kultury) leaves bus “Modlin Bus” (https://www.modlinbus.pl/en). This stop is next to the Warsaw Central Railway Station.
From Warsaw Modlin Airport to Warsaw Modlin Railway Station leaves bus “MBUS”. Next to Warsaw Central Railway Station leaves train KM9 (http://warszawa.jakdojade.pl/?locale=en).
From the Warsaw Central Railway Station or Warsaw West Railway Station to Cracow Main Railway Station (Kraków Główny) leave express trains every one hour – a ticket costs is estimated to 230 PLN (55 €) for class 1 or 150 PLN (35 €) for class 2 (http://rozklad-pkp.pl/en).
Attention: You must buy a ticket at the box office or travel agent, because a ticket bought from the conductor is about 500 PLN (130 €) more expensive.
Then go to Krynica Zdrój by bus “Szwagropol” (http://www.szwagropol.pl/pl/linie-autobusowe/rozklad-jazdy). See „from Cracow Balice Airport (KRK) to Krynica Zdrój” at the top of this directions.
There are also two direct trains from Warsaw to Krynica Zdrój (http://rozklad-pkp.pl/en) (Please pay attention to the long travel time):
Warsaw Chopin Airport – “Warszawa Centralna” Warsaw Central Railway Station (~9 km)
Warsaw Modlin Airport - “Warszawa Centralna” Warsaw Central Railway Station (~40 km)
Balice Airport - Cracow Main Railway Station (~14km)
Cracow Main Railway Station - Krynica Zdrój (~144 km)
