Call for
The impressive improvement in the performance of organic thin film field-effect transistors (OTFTs) during the last two decades, coupled with the processability advantages offered by organic materials, has attracted the interest of the optoelectronics industry and has opened the way for practical, broad-impact applications of such devices. OTFTs are based on various small organic molecules, conjugated polymers and oligomers, blends of such materials, or organic-inorganic hybrids. Potential applications for organic semiconductors are currently aimed at large-area electronics, which almost always involve intermolecular transport mechanisms. They include flexible active-matrix displays with OTFT backplanes, e-paper, low-cost and low-end printable electronic circuits, devices such as RFID tags and smart cards, and sensors. Knowledge accumulated from the study of these organic materials and devices will in the future aid the design, development, and fabrication of molecular and polymeric devices based on intramolecular transport. This year we will expand from organic transistors to other emerging thin-film transistor technologies, which include oxide, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), hybrid organic/inorganic perovskites, and 2D materials.

This conference is intended to provide a platform for discussions and exchanges between scientists with different backgrounds, all experts in the field of organic and organic/inorganic hybrid transistors in an effort to assess the state-of-the-art in this field of research and reflect on the predominant vision(s) for the future of thin-film transistor technologies.
