4th Annual Innovations in Large-Area Electronics Conference 23-24 January 2018, Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

The Call for Papers is now open for the Innovations in Large-Area Electronics (innoLAE) conference taking place 23-24 January 2018 at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridge, UK.

Large-Area Electronics (LAE) is a new way of making electronics and includes printed, flexible, plastic, organic, and bio- electronics.

In 2017, over 260 delegates representing 140 different organisations in 13 countries attended the three days of conference events. innoLAE has been particularly successful at attracting an equal balance of delegates from industry and academia, facilitating both dissemination and networking opportunities for researchers and key-decision makers in the Large-Area Electronics (LAE) community. Following the success of previous events, the innoLAE 2018 conference and exhibition will present a varied 2-day programme featuring a mix of contributions for academia and industry, highlighting the most recent and exciting innovations in LAE and new products incorporating LAE technologies, including topics such as:

  • Novel manufacturing paradigms for LAE
  • Emerging materials and technologies for LAE
  • Flexible hybrid electronics
  • Smart wearables and stretchable/ultra-flexible electronics
  • Internet of Things and sensor technologies
  • Bio-electronics
  • Energy harvesting and storage by or for LAE
