Message from the Chair

 As a follow-up to the 2nd International TADF Workshop in Fukuoka, we are delighted to announce the organization of the 3rd International TADF Workshop to share the recent advances and future direction of TADF science and technologies. We will discuss the latest in TADF materials, device architectures, upconversion mechanisms, and applications. In addition, we have decided to extend the discussion to other excitonic topics, such as singlet fission and perovskite emitters. We are also excited to announce the i3-OPERA Forum, a companion event aimed at industry researchers and focusing on industry-oriented OLED technologies.
 Without a doubt, this truly will be a thermally activated summer in Fukuoka!
