Flexible sensors and electronics have applications ranging from stretchable “smart skin” patches, bendable touchscreen displays, solar panels, and batteries. This workshop focuses on micro-technologies that enable flexible sensors and electronics in medical, consumer, industrial, and military applications.

What are the latest flexible sensor technologies and devices being developed? What are the challenges facing the development, use, and integration of flexible sensors? What factors are driving the market for new applications? What new materials or manufacturing processes are making flexible sensors more viable, cost-effective, and efficient to use?

We hope you will join us as we answer these questions and discuss other exciting flexible sensors topics with industry experts and research leaders. Networking sessions and exhibits will complement speaker presentations and topics.
