This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The program of our GRC meeting spans a range of topics at the frontier of organic and hybrid electronics and optoelectronics. Areas of traditional strength, such as fundamental processes in polymer-based optoelectronics, the photophysics of π-conjugated materials, and device physics will be discussed, along with emerging topics of fundamental processes in metal-halide perovskites, organic bioelectronics, and light-induced quantum phenomena at room temperature with organic materials. Considerable value will arise from creating opportunities for cross-fertilization between these various sub-fields. As an example, the rapid growth of the organic bioelectronics field can be attributed in part to lessons learned over two decades on key aspects of thin-film organic optoelectronics, such as exciton physics, the relationship between electronic function and macromolecular conformation and solid-state microstructure, interface electronic structure, and thin-film solution processing. This conference provides a premier context for researchers at all stages of career, among them leading experts in these various sub-fields, to gather under the same roof for five days of intense, inclusive, and stimulating discussions that will undoubtedly contribute to further understanding and progress in the area of organic and hybrid thin-film optoelectronics and beyond.
