(October 11, 2010) — The 6th edition of the Global Plastic Electronics Conference & Exhibition takes place October 19-21 at Messe Dresden in Dresden, Germany and for the first time it will be held together with the SEMICON Europa 2010. This year’s Physics Noble Laureate, Dr. Kostya Novoselov, will speak about graphene at the show.
Dr. Kostya Novoselov will present, "Graphene: Materials in the Flatland." His talk will be given within the Plastic Electronics Conference on Thursday, October 21 in the plenary hall of Messe Dresden. Novoselov and co-researcher Andre Geim won the Nobel Prize in Physics just days ago for their work on graphene nano material.
This week in Dresden will become an international focus point for new developments in the electronic industries. About 8000 professionals from science and industry are expected to attend the combined event.
The Plastic Electronics Conference program will include speakers from Philips Lighting, Osram, Merck, Samsung, Cambridge University, Stanford University, and more. There will be more than 100 lectures from prominent experts recognized for their outstanding achievements in this field.
The six topics of the conference are: Organic Electronics, Displays, Organic Photovoltaics, Lighting, Smart Integrated Systems, and Novel System Approaches. The adjacent exhibition offers the opportunity to see demonstrators, services and products as well as network.
The Plastic Electronic Conference & Exhibition 2010 and the SEMICON Europa 2010 are combined at the "Converging Electronics Week." Within this dual-hosted and dually organized event, there will be enterprise-tours to local businesses and expert workshops on organic electronics and semiconductor technology.
Dresden is the largest European locations for organic electronics and one of the top locations in the world. More than 850 specialists are working in one of Saxony’s fastest growing high-tech industries today. Saxony’s close network of universities, research-facilities and businesses, encourages excellent knowledge transfer lab-to-fab. The Free State of Saxony will have an opening reception on October 19 for all regular registered attendees of the conference.
OES — Organic Electronics Saxony e.V. represents the interests of the largest European cluster of organic semiconductor. The network combines local, midsize companies as well as some of the most important, global players working in the field of organic electronic research and development in Saxony. OES supports specifically the internal know-how-transfer in R&D and offers a platform to boost the existing global market position successfully and efficiently. www.oes-net.de
