The Sixth International Symposium on Functional p-Electron Systems will bring together chemists, physicists, biologists, and engineers to discuss recent developments in the field of p-conjugated materials.
This symposium series began in 1989 in Osaka, Japan, as the “International Symposium on Functional Dyes.” Past symposia were held in Kobe (Japan, 1992), Santa Cruz (California, 1995), Osaka (Japan, 1999) and Ulm (Germany, 2002). The name of the symposium changed several years ago to reflect its broadened scope and align it with recent developments in academic, industrial and government research institutions.
The fp series is a unique forum for the discussion of structure-properties relationships in p-conjugated materials. Over 600 scientists from 29 nations attended the previous symposium in Ulm. The technical program will include 5 keynote lectures, 35 plenary lectures, 60 invited and contributed oral presentations and 3 extensive poster sessions. Papers are solicited on the following topics:
- synthesis of functional p-electron materials (molecular, polymeric, other)
- processing techniques
- structure (bulk, surface/interface)
- properties (electrical, optical, biological, mechanical, other)
- applications (electroluminescent devices, photovoltaic cells, transistors, non-linear optics, sensors, other)
Located in the Finger Lakes region, Ithaca will provide an ideal setting for this meeting. The region features a multitude of scenic gorges, state parks, and award-winning wineries. Combining the best of rural and urban life, Ithaca was voted one of the top 10 best places for families to live in the USA. The state-of-the-art lecture halls of the Cornell campus, the availability of dormitory rooms (in addition to regular hotel rooms) within walking distance of the conference, and easy access to Internet and exercise facilities will add to the quality of the meeting. The proximity to companies such as Xerox, Kodak, IBM, GE, and Corning will ensure a strong interaction with industry. An extensive social program will be organized for persons accompanying conference attendees.
