Poster Presentation

In addition to the presentations, the Scientific Conference will also feature Poster Presentations. This is where companies and research organizations show their latest developments on the topic of printed electronics in a compact poster format, partly supplemented by short explanatory videos.
The posters are available to all trade show and conference participants and exhibitors on demand in the Poster Presentations section of the digital event platform during the event. Conference participants can access the Poster Presentations ONLINE until 6 weeks after LOPEC 2021. This year, you will have the opportunity to contact the authors of the posters at any time. This way, you can gain further knowledge and establish useful contacts.

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™.
