Presently, a paradigm shift of technology from Hard and Dry to Soft and Wet is taking place. That is, the industrial importance is moving from heavy materials and silicon semiconductors to artificial intelligence and life science. Electronics materials of hard and dry technologies are silicon and inorganic semiconductors, electrons are playing the role of functions. On the other hand, the materials for soft and wet are organics, and ions are working with electrons.
Up to date, the symposium on organic iontronics have been held for a few years, and interested in greatly for the importance of human friendly materials and devices. We are sure that our symposium will provide key technologies in the future to solve issues on environment and energy, then should be held successively.
This symposium focus on the biomimetic devices, including enzyme sensors, biodevices, neural network, synapus devices, and artificial muscles and organs, as well as common organic iontronics and electronics devices. The main purpose of this symposium is to provide an opportunity for researchers, who are interested in organic iontronics, to come together in an informal and friendly atmosphere and exchange their technical information and experience.
