Materials for Organic Electronics 2023


It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 3rd symposium “Materials for Organic Electronics: Synthesis, Spectroscopy and Theory” held in Heidelberg June 16th – 17th, 2023. 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 compounds as functional materials and the road map for future materials and technologies.

Scientific Programme

This conference covers a broad range of topics, including the design of novel molecules and extended structures for charge transport and energy conversion, developments in molecular polaritonics, advanced spectroscopy, organic electronic devices (OLED, OPV, OFET), and computational methods to understand organic semiconductors and their properties.
