Technologies supported by inkjet printing are increasing. You are invited to submit your research and innovation development to this broad spectrum design-to-application event. This symposium is targeted towards enhancing the basic understanding of the functional principles of inkjet with respect to research, design and manufacturing, and also highlighting industrially relevant innovations and success stories. We are looking for papers that describe both the challenges and successes associated with ink jet printhead development and the challenges and successes with functional printing applications. Applications within the fields of printed electronics, nano and micro structured materials, and the biosciences will be covered.
