CD Congress Centre Ljubljana has hosted the 10th Liquid Matter Conference (LMC) with 681 scientists from 49 countries presenting 887 abstracts. Drinking tap water at the conference brings a fresh dimension to organising events in Slovenia.
From 17th until 21st July 2017, Slovenian capital was involved in the in physics and chemistry of liquids, dedicated to the review of the latest findings. The main topics of the conference, organized every 3 years, were ionic and liquid metals, water and solutions, liquid crystals, polymers, colloids, films and foams and enclosed liquids, glass and gels, active substances and biological fluids. The LMC, world’s top scientific conference, was organized jointly by the Jožef Stefan Institute and the University of Ljubljana. Although the scientific programme brought the latest experimental and theoretical findings the prestigious part of it was the EPS Liquid Matter Prize awarding ceremony. The committee of the European Physical Society has received 15 nominations for the Liquid Matter Prize for outstanding contributions to the science of liquid matter. The jury has decided that the recipient of the Prize in 2017 is Professor Jacob Klein.
The conference also brings a fresh approach in F&B management of the events. Due to the cultural-ecological grounds and the good quality of the drinking water in Ljubljana the network/tapped water was served at all breaks to promote the awareness of high quality water in Slovenia and its capital Ljubljana. Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, is one of the few European capitals that boasts natural and high-quality drinking water, untreated with technological procedures, which runs simply from the tap.
