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.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2019. Please check back for updates.
