Printing in an Electronic World
Abstract:The death of print media technology has been predicted again and again over the past decades. Due to the rapid development of electronic technologies, printing today seems to be a mature technology leaving hardly any space for innovation despite all digital advancement in this field. However, the possibilities of new polymer electronic materials will dramatically alter this view as they enable the printing of electronics. Printing will evolve from a graphic art to a micro structuring technology. On the one hand, this will result in completely new requirements for printing processes and machines. On the other hand, entirely new growth markets for printed electronics can be envisaged.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
