Speakers will include Vahid Akhavan, Ph.D, global applications engineering lead at Novacentrix; Dene H. Taylor, PhD, president, SPF-Inc. and Dan Harrison, PhD, EVP, IIMAK; Frank Wallace, technical director, NANOGAP, Inc.; and Ajay Virkar, PhD, co-founder and CTO at C3Nano.
Presentations will also be given by George Fuchs, director of regulatory affairs and technology for NAPIM; Dr. Rachel Ma, assistant professor, Department of Graphic Communication, Cal Poly; Liam O’Hara, associate professor, Department of Graphic Communications, Clemson University; and David Savastano, editor, Ink World and Printed Electronics Now.
Electronic and conductive inks and materials are found in a growing range of flexible and printed electronics applications, from photovoltaics and flexible displays to sensors, wearables and smart packaging. Major brands such as Ralph Lauren, L’Oreal and GE are among the many companies who are successfully incorporating electronic and conductive inks into their products.
The potential applications for the flexible and printed electronics industry are appearing rapidly, and electronic and conductive inks are driving this fast-growing technology.
Electronic and Conductive Ink is sponsored by the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers (NAPIM) and Rodman Media, which produces Ink World and Printed Electronics Now. The conference will feature experts in the field of electronic and conductive inks, as well as allied fields such as equipment, researchers and end-users. Join us to learn about the opportunities ahead for electronic and conductive inks.
