General Information


The 19th International Workshop on Inorganic and Organic Electroluminescence & 2018 International Conference on the Science and Technology of Emissive Displays and Lighting (EL2018) will be held at the Meiji University in Tokyo, Japan from Tuesday, September 11, to Thursday 13, 2018. This is a continuation of a series of international workshops started in 1980 on inorganic electroluminescence, and expanded in 1988 to include organic electroluminescence. In 1995 the International Conference on the Science and Technology of Display Phosphors was initiated. From 2002 the two events merged, and since then they have been held biannually.


The scope of the workshop covers all aspects of basic and applied researches on both inorganic and organic electroluminescence (EL), and other light emitting materials and their science and technologies, as well as the applications. The latest results on materials, preparation, physical properties and application of EL devices and phosphors will be discussed. The following topics of current interests and included, but contributions to other related subjects are also encouraged and welcome.

  1. Organic EL Materials and Devices
    • organic materials and polymer materials
    • device physics and engineering
  2. Inorganic EL Materials and Devices
    • physics and chemistry of inorganic materials
    • characterization and modeling of EL devices
  3. Phosphors and Quantum Dot (QD) Technology
    • inorganic phosphors, processes and devices
    • QD phosphors and QD light emitting diode (QLED)
  4. Application and Other Related Materials
    • displays and lighting, flexible devices
    • insulators, electrodes, substrates and film transistors

The aim of the Workshop is to provide a stimulating and informal atmosphere for discussion on subjects of common interest for scientists and engineers working on inorganic and organic EL and related areas.


EL 2018 will be held at Liberty Hall (Ground floor, Liberty Tower) of Meiji University.
MEIJI university is located at the heart of Tokyo, and can be reached from Narita and Haneda International Airports within 1 hour. From Tokyo Station to Ochanomizu Station (the closest station to Meiji University) takes just 5 minutes by train. The campus is a 6-minute walk from Ochanomizu Station.
