Cancellation of ICOT 2020

The safety and comfort of our colleagues is central to the values of the organizing committee, and as such the health and well-being of our members, community and staff are paramount. After consulting with our team we have decided to cancel the International Conference on Organic and Hybrid Thermoelectrics that was scheduled for June 21-24th in Atlanta, GA, USA.

We hope to be able to make this a postponement rather than a cancellation and host the event later in the calendar year, but with the dynamic situation we are unable to offer any more information at this time. We will keep the website updated with any news.

Welcome to ICOT 2020!

Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on Organic and Hybrid Thermoelectrics (ICOT-2020). The conference will be held at the Georgia Institute of Technology, located in the heart of the city of Atlanta (USA) from June 21st to June 24th, 2020.

The field of organic and hybrid thermoelectrics has grown over the last decade and brings together the apparently disparate disciplines of organic electronics and organic thermal science exploring the interconversion of heat and electricity.  This biannual conference brings together researchers from around the world to share their most recent results and cement a legacy of a long lasting research community. 

This year, the theme of the conference is Advancing the Performance of Materials and Devices. 

Please join us as we engage in thoughtful exchanges to advance the performance of thermoelectric materials and devices. Each contribution to this field moves us one step closer to our common goal. 

We are still finalizing some of the Conference details, so check back here soon for updates on speakers and schedules.
