It is my great pleasure and an honor to welcome you to The 2017 International Conference on Flexible and Printed Electronics (ICFPE2017), to be held September 4~7, 2017 at The Shilla Hotel in Jeju Island, Korea.
The ICFPE 2017 will underpin the need for collaboration and cooperation of individuals from a wide range of professional backgrounds. This rich program will also provide all attendees with the opportunities to meet and interact with the leading scientists, researchers and colleagues as well as sponsors.
Jeju Island is an exceptional location for the Conference. It is renowned as one of the new 7 wonders of nature with the sparkling ocean and towering Halla Mountains providing a unique and spectacular setting. The ICFPE 2017 will be held at The Shilla Hotel which is widely recognized as a resort with an exotic atmosphere and the best facilities.
The previous ICFPEs were held in Jeju, Korea (350 participants, 2009), in Hsinchu, Taiwan (400 participants, 2010) and in Tokyo, Japan (More than 500 participants, 2012). This year, the 8th ICFPE is jointly being organized by the Korea Printed Electronics Association (KoPEA), with supports from Organic Electronics Association (OE-A), research groups in Japan, Taiwan and China. Many leading scientists and engineers invited from Asia, Europe, USA will present relevant and up-to-date overviews of the current development in this field.
On behalf of the International Conference on Flexibleand Printed Electronics Organizing Committee, I thank all thesponsors for their technical and financial support; all the session chairs, speakers and reviewers for their participation and contribution; and all the committee members for their team work and follow-through.
