Call for
The growing activity and progress in organic, printable, and hybrid electronics, together with the need for on-chip integrable and inexpensive detecting systems, have prompted the development of easily processable organic field-effect transistor (OFET)- and light-emitting diode (OLED)-based sensors, photodetectors, and bioelectronic devices. Solution or easily processable two-dimensional metal oxides, carbon-based, and hybrid organic/inorganic 2D and 3D materials have proven useful as active layers in chemical and biological transducers. Novel technological approaches that allow the integration of functional bio-receptors into device structures are also critically important to endow such devices with recognition capabilities. Fast and even simultaneous detection of multiple analytes utilizing micro/nano array systems will open a plethora of novel applications in key areas such as clinical analysis, environment monitoring, food and beverage safety, and homeland security. The assessment of the analytical performance level of sensing devices is strategic for achieving on-chip reliable quantitative analysis. Continued research and development efforts are needed to further improve sensors’ performance level and low cost manufacturability.

Organic and printable bioelectronics is also attracting increasing interest. The field explores chemical, ionic, and optoelectronic attributes of organic materials and their incorporation in bioelectronic devices. Examples of devices include ion pumps based on conducting polymers, which have been used to control cell growth, and conducting polymer electrodes for medical implants. A better understanding of the organic/living tissue interface, which will lead to the design of better biosensor concepts, remains a challenge.

This conference will focus on progress in chemical, biological, and physical sensors and actuators, including image sensors and flexible/stretchable and large-scale devices from carbon-based, solution processable metal-oxides, and hybrid organic/inorganic materials. Devices such as organic- and perovskite-based photdetectors and organic bioelectronic devices, including neural interfaces, diagnostics, drug delivery devices, and tissue engineering concepts using electrical activation/control of cells will be discussed.

Contributions related (but not limited) to the following topics are solicited:
  • organic and hybrid organic/inorganic transistors for chemo- and biosensing
  • carbon-based nanomaterials, including graphene, for sensors and bioelectronic applications
  • solution processable ZnO and other metal oxides for electronic sensing applications
  • bio-inspired systems in organic electronics for biotechnology and medical applications
  • OLEDs and organic semiconductor lasers for analytical applications
  • organic light emitting transistors (OLETs) for chemo- and biosensing
  • multicolor-tunable OLED arrays for absorption measurements in analytical applications
  • flexible OLEDs and OLED-based wearable devices
  • luminescent conjugated polymers in disease detection
  • organic electronics in medical treatment for pain relief
  • organic semiconductors in plasmon-based sensors
  • organic and perovskite-based photodetectors in analytical applications
  • organic biocompatible materials in applications such as cell growth, tissue engineering, and drug delivery
  • synthesis, characterization, and optimization of sensor materials
  • flexible electronics for the manufacturing of large-area sensors and actuators
  • conformable and stretchable electronics for sensing applications
  • array technologies in organic electronics: microfluidics, nanoscale, and lab-on-a-chip for multiple analyte detection.
  • A joint session with the conference on Organic Thin Film Transistors (OTFTs)
  • A joint session with the conference on Biosensing and Nanomedicine

Best Student Paper Awards
Awards will be given to the three best student papers in the Symposium on Organic Photonics + Electronics. The papers will be peer-reviewed and judged on their scientific merit, their technical and broader impact, and their overall quality by a committee of expert scientists in the field. The three winners will be announced and presented with their awards during the plenary session of the Symposium on Organic Photonics + Electronics. Self-nominate when you submit your abstract; see requirements.
