In-line with the previous editions, DTIP’2016 will be a scientific event with two main conferences, along with invited talks.

The preliminary Program can be viewed online here

Confirmed Invited Speakers
Dr. Yoshihiro Kawahara, Associate Professor, Department of Information and Communication Engineering, The University of Tokyo – Japan
« Internet of Autonomous Things »
Internet of Things (IoT) and Big data are expected to open up new vista in various scenes. However computers used to constitute IoT infrastructures are inherently delicate and powerless in harsh natural environments because they assume existence of interactive users as caregivers.
We aim at creating universal information network in which sensor network and IoT devices act as more autonomous and active artefacts and forms a symbiotic relation with natural objects. Research challenges include low-cost and rapid digital fabrication technology to produce smart IoT devices such as sensors, robots, and wearable devices, energy harvesting and wireless power transmission technology for sustainable operation of the IoT devices, and design of an autonomous system architecture that harnesses such energy sources. We foster vertical integration of a new interaction technologies dealing with human-to-object and object-to-object relations in the new material systems enabled by our technology.

Yoshihiro Kawahara
is conducting research in the areas of Computer Networks and Ubiquitous Computing. In 2014, he established a company named AgIC, Inc based on his academic research work on printed electronics. In 2015, he established another company named SenSprout Inc, whose mission is to develop low cost agricultural sensors to save the water needed to grow plants.

Dr. Harun H. Solak, EULITHA AG, Switzerland
« Nano-patterning for better and more efficient photonic devices »
Because of its wave nature, light interacts strongly with periodic structures which have length scale on the order of the wavelength. This phenomenon provides the foundation of a very rich area of physics which has led to the development of countless uses from spectrometers to photonic crystals. The fabrication of high quality periodic structures for such applications has been an active area of research for several decades now. The PHABLE photolithography technology developed in recent years enables a new way for production of such structures over large areas at low-cost. The technology has been demonstrated for uniform patterning of 4-inch wafers and it is expected to be used in high volume production of LEDs and other devices in the near future. Other possible applications in the photonics field include production of nanostructures for LCD displays, lasers, biosensors and photovoltaic panels

Dr. Solak has over twenty years of experience in the fields of micro and nano fabrication and x-ray science. He received his Ph.D. from the Electrical Engineering Dept. of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He set up world’s first EUV-IL systems at the UW-Madison and later at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland. He has been heading the lithography startup Eulitha which he founded in 2009 together with his partners. Dr. Solak has more than one hundred technical articles published in the fields of nanolithography, x-ray microscopy and semiconductor device reliability.

Dr. Shimpei Ono, Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry, Kanagawa, Japan
« Development of iontronics – application for energy harvester  »
Electric field control of charge carrier density has long been a key technology to tune the physical properties of condensed matter, exploring the modern semiconductor industry. One of the big challenges is to increase the maximum attainable carrier density, however it is limited by the quality of gate dielectrics.
In this talk, I’m going to show the novel technique to modulate carrier density making use of ionic liquid electrolytes. With electrolyte gating, we can modulate up to 10^15/cm2 of carrier density at the interface which is 2 orders of magnitude larger than conventional gate dielectrics and demonstrate that we can indeed control metal-to-insulator and ferromagnetic-paramagnetic transition by electric-field effect doping. I also will show our recent progress (energy harvester and light emitting device) using ionic liquid electrolytes.

Dr. Shimpei Ono is involved for the last 10 years in the research of novel electronics with ionic liquids. He is a visiting professor at University of Grenoble Alps within the flame work of Chair of Excellence program with LANEF.
