Flexible electronics is an emerging technology with far reaching impact in a number of areas including flat-panel displays, OLEDs, sensors, batteries and distributed macroelectronic systems and architectures. Flexible and printed smart devices incorporating organic and printed circuits, sensors and energy sources will enable new approaches in logistics and consumer packaging. New flexible displays with exceptionally low energy consumption will be used anywhere and anytime. It is a disruptive technology, the true impact of which will not become apparent until after it becomes quite pervasive. It is intrinsically interdisciplinary and it will transform the way we make electronics utilizing room temperature, ambient techniques in a roll-to-roll platform. The synergy between materials, device and manufacturing technologies will be the primary driver in pushing flexible large-area electronics and optoelectronics into large-scale applications that will revolutionize the additive manufacturing process for electronic devices. The symposium showcase industrially relevant innovations in the following areas:
