Conference Announcement

- IUPAC-sponsored event -

21st Discussion Conference and 9th International ERPOS Conference on Electrical and Related Properties of Polymers and Other Organic Solids, 15-18 July 2002, Prague, Czech Republice

> Back to Calendar

This conference pairing will provide an interdisciplinary forum for scientists working in the fields of low-molecular-weight and polymeric molecular materials with emphasis on their electrical, photoelectric, and optical phenomena. Primary objectives of the meeting are to achieve international cooperation of researchers in academia and industry and to stimulate growth in the field of organic materials for electronics and photonics. Discussions will be focused on novel organic materials and their electrical and related properties. Holding the two conferences together provides a unique opportunity for transferring theories and models developed for perfect molecular crystalline systems to the area of disordered phases and for discussing optical properties, nanotechnologies, and dynamics and kinetics of physical and chemical transformations occurring in these media.

Specific topics for discussion will include molecular model systems: single crystals and highly organized structures; liquid crystals; macromolecules and biomolecules; organic nanocomposites and nanostructures; smart molecules; electrical properties: charge generation and transport, photo-conductivity and photovoltaics, electronic processes at interfaces, electroluminescence, and organic conductors and isolators; and optical properties including nonlinear optics and photoinduced processes. Plenary lectures will address supramolecular materials: toward dynamic conbinatorial materials, photoionization in conjugated polymers, luminescence properties of carbazole and oxadiazole units containing low macromolecular organic compounds, transfer states of organic molecular crystals, and interfacial phenomena in organic polymer films and generation of Maxwell displacement current. Approximately 120-150 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend this pair of conferences.
