It is our pleasure to welcome you to the symposium “Materials for Organic Electronics: Synthesis, Spectroscopy and Theory” held in Heidelberg June 29th – 30th, 2018. This symposium will bring together scientists from all over the world and allow them to present and discuss recent developments in the understanding and application of organic molecules as semiconductors and the road map for future materials and technologies.

Scientific Programme

This symposium covers a broad range of topics, including the design of novel molecules and extended conjugated structures for charge transport and energy conversion, advanced spectroscopy and microscopy techniques, organic electronic devices (OLED, OPV, OFET), molecular doping and impact of defects, and computational methods to understand organic semiconductors and their properties.
