Prague, Czech Republic, July 18-23, 2021

About the conference

Welcome to the website of Liquids 2020, the 11th Liquid Matter Conference, organized jointly by the Czech Academy of Sciences and J. E. Purkinje University under the auspicies of the European Physical Society.

Given the current circumstances, the Liquid Matter Board and the Condensed Matter Division of the EPS have taken a difficult decision not to hold the conference this year as scheduled and to postpone it to July 18-23, 2021, with the venue remaining unchanged.

Previous conferences in the series were hosted by Lyon (1990), Florence (1993), Norwich (1996), Granada (1999), Konstanz (2002), Utrecht (2005), Lund (2008), Vienna (2011), Lisbon (2014) and Ljubljana (2017).

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 from all over the world working in the field of physics and chemistry of liquids as well as in several closely related areas such as soft condensed matter and biophysics.
