The need for small-size and on-chip integrable and inexpensive detecting systems, including for biological and medical applications, have prompted the development of easily processable organic field-effect transistor (OFET)- and light-emitting diode (OLED)-based sensors integrated with organic or hybrid photodetectors. The growing activity and progress in flexible, organic, printable, and hybrid electronics enable the development of skin display electronic, as well as flexible wearable and implantable sensors. OLEDs and OLED arrays in optogenetics for potential implantable optical-neural interfaces, as well as modulation of neuronal networks activity is a biophotonics platform of growing interest. A better understanding of the organic/living tissue interface, which will lead to the design of better biosensing and biophotonics concepts, remains a challenge.

Overall fast and simultaneous detection of multiple analytes utilizing micro/nano array systems continues to open a plethora of novel applications in key areas such as clinical analysis, environment monitoring, food and beverage safety, and homeland security. 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. Continued research and development efforts are needed, including with newly emerging technologies on hybrid memory devices and logic elements to further improve sensors' performance level and low-cost manufacturability.

This conference will focus on progress in chemical, biological, medical, and physical sensors and actuators, including image sensors and flexible/stretchable e-skin, and large-scale devices from carbon-based, solution processable metal-oxides, and hybrid organic/inorganic materials. Devices such as organic-, quantum dot, 2D semiconductor, and perovskite-based photodetectors and organic bioelectronic devices, including neural interfaces, optogenetics, diagnostics, drug delivery devices, food analysis, water sensing, and tissue engineering concepts using optical and electrical activation will be discussed.

The conference will focus also on the science and technology of next generation memory and logic devices based on organic, hybrid organic/inorganic, and inorganic materials, which are predominately fabricated by printing technologies. It will span a broad spectrum from fundamental science related to novel materials development and processing to addressing issues related to organic and inorganic surfaces and interfaces, to device fabrication, system applications, and integration using novel printing methods.
