Innovations in Large-Area Electronics Conference (innoLAE 2018)

The 4th annual Innovations in Large-Area Electronics Conference (innoLAE 2018) will be held at the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK on 23-24 January 2018. The conference programme highlights the most innovative and exciting aspects of large-area electronics (including printable, flexible or organic electronics) emerging technologies, their manufacture and the development of products incorporating large-area electronics (LAE). Through innoLAE, we provide a platform to help bring innovation into the market and accelerate take up of new technologies.

The Call for Papers is now open for the Innovations in Large-Area Electronics (innoLAE) 2018 conference. 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:
  1. Novel manufacturing paradigms for LAE
  2. Emerging materials and technologies for LAE 
  3. Flexible hybrid electronics
  4. Smart wearables and stretchable/ultra-flexible electronics 
  5. Internet of Things and sensor technologies
  6. Bio-electronics 
  7. Energy harvesting and storage by or for LAE
