Symposium T

Stretchable Materials and Devices for Wearables and Robotics

Soft and stretchable polymeric devices are emerging as a means to address important challenges for compliant, intelligent sensors systems. These materials enable exciting new classes of electronic devices, sensors, human-machine interfaces and robots that have tremendous impact on a wide variety of applications due to its ability to actively conform to curvilinear surfaces and new capabilities such as self-healing and bioresorbable. Understanding of material properties at multiple length scales and chemistries could enable broader discussion and drive new material processes and applications.

This symposium aims to bring together experts from across disciplines, from physics, chemistry, nanomaterials and device engineering to discuss their latest research, and provide a platform for potential collaborations in the following exciting topics.

  • Electronic and artificial skins
  • Healthcare and biomedical applications
  • Wearable (on-body or in-body) sensors, devices and power sources
  • Highly-stretchable materials and devices: fabrication, application, and mechanics
  • Conformable hybrid sensors and devices
  • Flexible organics and inorganic hybrid electronics
  • Mechanics and design of wearable and stretchable electronics
  • Self-healable devices and systems
  • Soft robotics and actuators
  • Nature inspired devices and systems
  • Multi-scale material fundamentals, modeling and designs
  • Stretchable opto-electronic devices
  • Nanomaterials and nanomechanics for stretchable electronics
