Organic Semiconductors and Flexible Electronics Workshop

The “KAUST Workshop on Organic Semiconductors and Flexible Electronics” will take place from October 10th – 12th, 2022 in the Library Atrium on the KAUST campus. The workshop will train young scientist on the cutting-edge research on carbon-based semiconductors, focusing on the key technologies toward the development of solution-processable and printable electronics in alignment with the KAUST Semiconductors initiative. The content will cover the four key topics in the field of organic semiconductors:

  • Design and Synthesis
  • Processing, doping, and characterization
  • Theory and Modeling
  • Device prototyping and upscaling
  • Flexible and Printed Electronics

    The workshop will bring together leading scientists in the field, industry partners, as well as young researchers from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and abroad. As such, the workshop is key for the formation and training of junior scientists from KAUST and Saudi Arabia, who will lead the development of the field of organic and printed electronics in the region, allowing them to exchange knowledge with senior scientists leading the field in North America, Europe, and the Pacific, thus paving the way for the kingdom to become a leader in the development of consumable electronics and their democratization.

    The technical program will be held from Monday, October 10 to Wednesday, October 12, 2022. The workshop will also present an opportunity for PhD students and postdocs to develop their skills, through training sessions, as well as present their research work in Pecha Kucha and poster presentations on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.

    This event is co-organized by the PSE division's Laboratory of Organic Materials for Energy Applications (OMEGA Lab) & the BESE division's Laboratory of Organic Bioelectronics (BIOEL). Administrative support is provided by KAUST Solar Center (KSC) with financial support from KAUST Research Funding (KRF).
