Flexible electronics have been gaining considerable attention in the past decades, not only at the academic but also at industrial level. The development of electronic components/systems on highly flexible and possibly conformable substrates could allow the integration of smart functionalities, such as sensing capabilities, communication units etc., onto any type of surface (paper, fabrics, etc.), opening up a wide range of possible applications.

The aim of this section is to provide researchers with a highly multidisciplinary platform where they can report and read about i) synthesis and processing of novel materials for flexible electronics; ii) chemical and physical properties of materials, from small molecules to solution processable polymers; iii) design and fabrication of novel devices based on organic materials such as organic field effect transistors, organic solar cells, or light emitting diodes, but also memory elements, thermoelectric generators, and others; iv) novel fabrication procedures, with particular attention towards high-throughput and cost-efficient approaches; v) novel applications, from flexible circuits and displays to smart tags, flexible lab on chip, artificial skin, etc.
