5th International Symposium on Functional p-Electron Systems (Fp5), 30 May-4 June 2002, Ulm/NeuUlm, Germany

> 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 topics:

• synthesis of functional p electron systems (including combinatorial approaches)

• structure/property relationships in functional pelectron systems

• nano-structures comprising functional pelectron systems

• organic electronic devices and molecular electronics

• biological p electron systems (including bio-labeling)

• supra-molecular aspects

• probing and imaging

• industrial aspects

Approximately 250-350 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend Fp5.
