5th International Symposium on Functional p-Electron
Systems (Fp5), 30 May-4 June 2002, Ulm/NeuUlm,
> Back to Calendar
Fp5 aims (1) to combine biology, chemistry,
physics, and applications of functional p
electron systems, and (2) to strengthen interactions between academia
and industrial research laboratories. Although many materials-oriented
symposia (organic, polymeric, etc.) are dominated by physics, Fp5
will be centered around and stress chemical aspects of the field. This
interdisciplinary symposium is designed to stimulate and encourage young
researchers who will be carrying science and technology forward into
the 21st century. Fp5 represents the fifth
consecutive meeting in a series formerly entitled "International Symposium
on Functional Dyes". Previous symposia were held in Osaka, Japan (June
1989); Kobe, Japan (August 1992); Santa Cruz, California, USA (August
1995); and again in Osaka, Japan (June 1999). The total number of participants
for each symposium was 500 to 600 from 12 to 15 nations. The symposium
name has been changed to broaden the scope of the conference and to
adjust to actual developments in academic and industrial research.
Plenary and invited lectures, contributed papers in oral and poster
presentations, and roundtable discussions will focus on the following
synthesis of functional p electron
systems (including combinatorial approaches)
structure/property relationships in functional pelectron
nano-structures comprising functional pelectron
organic electronic devices and molecular electronics
biological p electron systems (including
probing and imaging
Approximately 250-350 scientific participants from around the world
are expected to attend Fp5. For additional
