UK Plastic Electronics Research Conference

10th – 11th December 2013

Burleigh Court, Holywell, Loughborough University

The UK Plastic Electronics Research Conference is a two-day event providing researchers from UK universities with the opportunity to showcase their work to industry and academia.

Presentations are sought at postgraduate level on any subject related to printed, plastic, organic and large area electronics. Potential topics could comprise, but are not restricted to, recent developments in applications, materials and processing. Examples include applications, OLEDs, OPVs, smart packaging, printed biosensors, developments in thin film printing or vacuum processing and in understanding of underpinning physics etc.

The conference will be a great opportunity for researchers to present their work and to meet others from around the country who are working in similar fields. As a gathering of leading industry and academia it will offer potential for professional development and possible collaborations.

Abstracts should be max 200 words outlining research highlights to be presented to members of the plastic & printed electronics industry either as a short 10-minute presentation or as a printed poster. It is possible to submit abstracts for more than one poster and we would encourage presenters to submit a poster describing their work.

This event is open to all. The registration for speakers is free of charge and will include lunch, gala dinner and refreshments. Furthermore, funds are available by the IOP Printing and Graphic Science Group for basic travel expenses of speakers. For overnight accommodation special rates will be available.

There will be several prizes awarded for best student presentations at the conference.

Initial deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday 1st November 2013

After the deadline there will be a sifting panel of experts from ESP KTN, the IOP PGS, EPSRC and TSB to select abstracts for presentations and/or poster displays. Due to the short format style we would encourage all delegates to bring a poster regardless of whether they are asked to speak.

Abstracts can be emailed to
