Liquid Crystal Today, Vol. 26 (2) 2017

Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the second issue of Liquid Crystals Today of this year, which, due to lack of submissions, will be somewhat shorter this time. I thus would like to remind the whole community to suggest topics to me that I can follow up, volunteer your students to write reviews about their outstanding work, suggest books to be reviewed, tell us about your latest efforts in public engagement, or simply volunteer to write about the latest conference you attended or are planning to attend. I would like to see contributions to the journal covering a breadth of topics and research areas, written by the whole community, not just a handful of people. You all do very interesting work in your laboratories, in your lecture theatres, with your computers and possibly just with paper and pencil. Let us know about it. This especially holds for the younger colleagues, who thus have a great opportunity to showcase their important work.
