Posted on March 26, 2013 @ 01:06 pm

Industry leaders throughout the value chain have signed up for LOPE-C, International Conference and Exhibition for the organic and printed electronics industry, which will take place at Messe München in Munich from June 11-13, 2013.

Important international companies from the materials, equipment, production and applications sectors will be participating. During the three-day conference, international speakers, among others from Audi, Thin Film Electronics and the University of Manchester, will present the latest developments in the market.

Printed electronics is increasingly moving into mass market applications. Already, it is used for solar cells, sensors, keyboards, displays and smart objects. The annual exchange of information, ideas and experience between user industries, manufacturers and R&D at LOPE-C is one of the most important factors in further advancing flexible printed electronics and bringing it to mass-producible market maturity. More than 1,500 participants attended the conference in Munich last year.

Featuring as a special highlight at the exhibition is the Demo Line. Bosch-Rexroth, Coatema, DuPont Teijin Films, Felix Schoeller, Fujifilm Dimatix, NovaCentrix and Xenon will be showing the production of functional demonstrators live at the LOPE-C, with new electronics for all participants to take home. The Demo Line is an initiative of the OE-A Working Group “Upscaling Production,” with support from TU Darmstadt and Fraunhofer ENAS, Chemnitz.

The three-day conference is divided into five segments: The Plenary Session, the Business Conference, the Technical Conference, the Scientific Conference and the Short Courses. About
190 international speakers will be giving lectures or holding round-table discussions.

In 2010, scientists from the University of Manchester were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for basic experiments with the two-dimensional material graphene. In the plenary sessions, Dr. Irina Grigorieva, director of the University of Manchester North West Nanoscience Doctoral Training Centre and member of the Nobel Prize-team, will give a lecture on "Graphene: The Magic of Flat Carbon."

Stephan Berlitz, head of lighting technology of German car manufacturer Audi, will give an insight into the requirements and first experiences with this technology in the automotive sector from a user's perspective. The topic of his lecture is: "OLED - Challenges for Automotive Lighting."
