International Workshop on Charge Transport and Excited State Processes in Organic Materials

University College London. 21-25 June 2021

This virtual workshop will be taking place on Zoom. A link to join in will be sent via email to those that register closer to the date.

Registration is now closed.


The scope of this workshop is to bring together theorists, computational and experimental scientists working in the area of organic materials for electronic applications. The content will cover approaches across different length scales (from molecular to device-level) towards the understanding of phenomena and mechanisms inherent to the function of organic semiconducting materials. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive overview of current state-of-the-art advances in this research field, covering key issues such as: electronic structure methods for excited states calculations, charge transport mechanisms in bulk and nanostructured interfacial systems, energy conversion through light harvesting, and light generation via recombination processes.

Lightning Talks:

In addition to Plenary and Invited Talks, there will be 10 short lightning talks and abstracts for these can be found in the programme. The registration for a flash presentation has now closed. The lightning talks will last for 5 minutes each and will be a great opportunity to get a brief overview of other exciting researchers' work.

Poster Sessions:

There will be 2 poster sessions, held virtually on Gather Town. Further details can be found in the Gather Town section. The registration for a poster submission has now closed.


Wei-Tao Peng, Matt Ellis, Orestis Ziogos, Samuele Giannini, Karen Stoneham, Roohollah Hafizi, Ljiljana Stojanovic, Jochen Blumberger


The conference will be held on London time (UTC+1)


Registration is now closed. All participants will receive an email shortly containing further details such as the zoom link to the conference. If you do not receive this please email Karen Stoneham.

Poster sessions will be held virtually on Gather Town. A link to access the session will be shared during the conference and will be emailed to all participants before we meet.

Main Instructions For Participants

What you need-Hardware:
  • Any computer (laptop/desktop), with a microphone and camera. -Gather Town is not optimized for mobile devices.
  • Web browsers: Google Chrome or Firefox recommended. Safari is currently in Beta.
  • We strongly recommend using headphones to help prevent feedback.
How it works:
  • Gather is a video chat platform that has avatars move around a map. As you get close to other avatars, your video will pop up and you will be able to chat.
  • Move your avatar around the space using thearrows on your keyboard.
  • When your avatar moves closer to an interactable object (e.g. a poster panel) pressx to see the content.
  • If you wish to reduce the number of video call connections your device makes, you can turn on Quiet Mode by pressing CTRL or CMD + U, or by selecting it from your user menu. You can toggle this on and off by clicking on your name on the blue bar at the bottom of your screen.
