8th International Conference on Organic Electronics

The 8th International Conference on Organic Electronics (ICOE 2012) will be held in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain) on June 25-27 2012. ICOE'12 will be organized by the NEPHOS Group, of the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona). Prof. Benjamin Iñiguez will be the General Chairman of ICOE 2012.

The conference covers all aspects of organic electronics, including materials and chemistry, transistors (OTFTs), OLEDs, photovoltaic cells, circuits and circuit design, manufacturing and inclusion in systems.

"Modeling" is one of the topics, and of course, it includes Compact Modeling.


The venue is the "Aula Magna" in one of the campuses of University Rovira i Virgili (URV) in Tarragona.

Tarragona is located in the south of Catalonia, in the northeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula. Tarraco (its Roman name) was one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire.
On 30 November 2000, the UNESCO committee officially declared the Roman archaeological complex of Tàrraco a World Heritage Site.

Tarragona can be easily reached from Barcelona Airport by bus and train. It is about 100 Km South from Barcelona. Besides, Reus Airport (less than 15 Km from Tarragona) receives flights from many European cities in the summer.

Speaking about Tarraco's climate, the famous Roman poet Virgil wrote: "The climate blends and confuses the seasons singularly, so that all the year seems an eternal spring." Thanks to its temperate climate, with an average yearly temperature of 23ºC, its clean beaches with fine and gloden sand, and its singular artistic and architectural heritage, Tarragona is one of the most important tourism hubs in Europe.

A Gala Dinner will take place in the evening of June 26. I recommend atttendees to go; there will be no match of the Soccer European Cup on that date, so you will have something to enjoy...

Besides, on June 28-29 (just after ICOE 2012), the 2nd Training Course on Compact Modeling will be held also in Tarragona, organized by the same group at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili. ICOE participants will have a reduced fee for that Training Course, which will target many topics related to compact device modeling.

I encourage researchers working on Organic Electronics, including modeling to submit abstracts to ICOE'12.
