For the first time this year, the Deutsche Flüssigkristall-Gesellschaft (DFKG) and its British pendant, the British Liquid Crystal Society (BLCS), organized a joined meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland. It became a great conference with many interesting talks and poster contributions, and as usual numerous fruitful discussions with other scientists from the field. I also recieved very positive feedback for my own oral presentation on "virtual microscopy", where I showed our recent advances in the TOSCO project. In summary, I think it was a great idea to hold a joint meeting, and I am looking already forward to the next joint conference in Würzburg 2017.
Many thanks the organizers of this great conference!
