Leading researchers and scientists from around the globe present the very latest ideas and findings from the world of science.

What are the latest innovations in the field of printed electronics? What are the recent findings of scientific research teams? At the Scientific Conference, these questions are discussed and defined across a broad range of scientific fields.

Poster Presentations

In addition to the oral presentations, we will also offer a poster exhibition. This means that instead of giving a presentation, you can display the essential information on an A0 poster on both days of the exhibition. During the Poster Session on Wednesday, March 6, 2024 from 18:00 to 19:30, you can communicate with the event participants personally and answer any questions on the spot.

Flexible and Printed Electronics™ Journal – Focus Collection

Furthermore, the LOPEC Scientific Board is collaborating with the academic journal Flexible and Printed Electronics™ by IOP, to publish a special Focus Collection of articles based on the research presented at LOPEC. This gives LOPEC presenters the unique opportunity to publish their research in a peer-reviewed journal. Submitted contributions must contain novel research and are not limited to results presented at the conference. All submitted articles will be peer-reviewed and must meet the high editorial standards of Flexible and Printed Electronics™.
