Living organisms are soft and wet, and created at ambient atmosphere. Though the motion is obscure, the function is excellent. On the other hand, manmade structures and devices are hard and dry. For example, electronic devices like transistors are fabricated at high temperature and high vacuum, utilizing high energy. Living organs produce functions by the combination of materials, structures and informatics. In otherwords, living materials are organized by materials and structures to produce functional organs. Future technologies should be based upon mimic of living organisms.
Up to date, the symposium based on organic iontronics have been held and discussed with interests in the future technology 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 in lifes, then should be held successively.
This symposium focuses on organic iontronics for sustainable future, or, propose novel organic devices aiming towards solution of problems related with energy & health. For example, energy devices of biofuel cell and solar cells, biodevices like enzyme sensors, neural network, synapse devices, artificial muscles and organs will be discussed. 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.
