Opening Keynote: Materials in the Flatland 
Tuesday September 13th, 9:00 – 10:00

Prof. Kostya Novoselov, Nobel Laureate (2010)
Royal Society Research Fellow
School of Physics & Astronomy, University of Manchester

When one writes by a pencil, thin flakes of graphite are left on a surface. Some of them are only one atom thick and can be viewed as individual atomic planes cleaved away from the bulk. Such one atom thick crystals of graphite (dubbed graphene) turned out to be the strongest crystsals available to us, the most conductive, most thermally conductive, most elastic, flexible, transparent material, etc, etc, etc. Its electronic properties are particularly exciting: its quasiparticles are governed by the Dirac equation so that charge carriers in graphene mimic relativistic particles with zero rest mass.

Still, probably the most important “property” of graphene is that it has opened a floodgate of experiments on many other 2D atomic crystals: BN, NbSe2, TaS2, MoS22, etc. The resulting pool of 2D crystals is huge, and they cover a massive range of properties: from the most insulating to the most conductive, from the strongest to the softest.

If 2D materials provide a large range of different properties, sandwich structures made up of 2, 3, 4 … different layers of such materials can offer even greater scope. Since these 2D-based heterostructures can be tailored with atomic precision and individual layers of very different character can be combined together, the properties of these structures can be tuned to study novel physical phenomena or to fit an enormous range of possible applications, with the functionality of heterostructure stacks is “embedded” in their design.

State-of-the-Art Keynote: HP’s Jet Fusion 3D Printing Technology—Enabling the Next Industrial Revolution
Tuesday September 13, 14:30 – 15:20

Dr. Tim Weber HP, Global Head, 3-D Materials and Advanced Applications

In 2014 Hewlett-Packard announced the development and commercialization of an innovative 3D printing technology that promised to set new standards for performance, quality, reliability and low TCO. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion™ (MJF) technology achieves its breakthrough performance by leveraging the company’s 30+ year history of innovation and market leadership in imaging and digital printing. This presentation will provide an introduction to a new-to-the-world digital fabrication technology that makes it possible to design and print three-dimensional objects that possess both precise geometric and functional characteristics. The MJF technology will radically change the way engineers and designers prototype and produce functional parts and the blending of HP’s MJF 3D printing technology with digital materials design creates a new fabrication paradigm—a paradigm that enables innovation in both form and function.

Wednesday Keynote: Low-Temperature Organic and Oxide Transistors for Printable Electronics
Wednesday September 14th, 9:00 – 10:00

Professor Henning Sirringhaus
Hitachi Professor of Electron Device Physics / Head of Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Group / Fellow of Churchill College
Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge

Over recent years there has been tremendous progress in developing low-temperature processible organic and oxide semiconductors that can be processed by solution-based printing techniques and provide high charge carrier mobilities for both n-type and p-type field-effect transistor operation, good operational stability and other functionalities such as efficient electroluminescence, sensing or memory functions. In this talk I will discuss the basic device and charge transport physics of organic and oxide transistors, review manufacturing approaches and assess their performance in light of a range of applications in displays and integrated systems.

Thursday Keynote: The Objectives of a National Project of ‘Manufacturing Innovation through Development of Next Generation 3D Printers’ in Japan
Thursday, September 15th, 9:00 – 10:00

Professor Hideki Kyogoku
Faculty of Engineering, Kindai University

Technology Research Association for Future Additive Manufacturing (TRAFAM) was established in 2014 to achieve the development of innovative additive manufacturing systems to meet the world's highest standards and the development of manufacturing technologies for high value-added products. In this presentation, the current status of the TRAFAM project is introduced.

Final Keynote: Materials and Fabrication Methods for Biofabrication
Friday, September 16th, 9:00 – 10:00

Professor Jürgen Groll
Chair for Functional Materials in Medicine and Dentistry, University of Würzburg

Within tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, Biofabrication is a young and dynamically evolving field of research. It aims at the automated generation of hierarchical tissue-like structures from cells and materials through Bioprinting or Bioassembly. This approach has the potential to overcome a number of classical challenges relating to organization, personalized shape and mechanical integrity of generated constructs.

Although this has allowed achieving some remarkable successes, it has recently become evident that the lack of variety in printable hydrogel systems is one major drawback for the complete field. In order to be suitable for Biofabrication, hydrogels have to comply with a number of prerequisites with regards to rheological behavior and especially stabilization of the printed structure instantly after printing, while at the same time allowing the cells to proliferate. Also fabrication techniques are often not ideal and need to be optimized for the printing of anatomical structures.

This lecture will briefly introduce the field and the major printing techniques, as well as the most important demands on materials and fabrication techniques. It will then introduce a new method for the rational design of thermoplast fibre constructs by the combination of melt electrospinning with automated movement of the collector (Melt electrospinning writing). This technique allows for the generation of highly regular fibrous constructs with pore sizes in cellular dimensions and fibre diameters down to submicrometer. Printing of anatomical structures that would not be accessible otherwise will be demonstrated at one example.

The lecture will then focus on printable hydrogels. Thiolene cross-linking of poly(glycidyl-co-allylglycidylether) based 3D plotted hydrogels will be introduced as alternative to the often used free radical polymerization to stabilize printed hydrogel structures with high resolution and reproducibility. Furthermore, a purely physically cross-linked system based on recombinant spider silk proteins will be introduced, in which beta-sheet interactions facilitate good printability and stability of the constructs.

Collocation with TDPF

IS&T and The Royal Photographic Society are joining to present the seventh International Symposium on Technologies for Digital Photo Fulfillment (TDPF). TDPF 2016 will have a special session on photobooks, as well as look at the technologies that drive the digital photography ecosystem, from capture to fulfillment. Plans are being made to tour local photographic archives.
