The first colloquy, »printed physics«, was held from May 12- 14, 2010. It looked at the technological developments with which the physical characteristics of materials can be formally analyzed, technologically constructed and (bio-)chemically synthesized, and which – hence the wording in the title – are meanwhile being industrially produced and distributed worldwide: electronics. It is no exaggeration to call this an actual printing revolution, although unlike in Gutenberg’s day, the printed products do not stand for something specifically, their symbols do not represent, but instead they are functionally operative for articulating what is only generically determined, in a sense that we call pre-specific.

The central phenomenon considered was the production procedure of printing electronics and its economic context and prospect.
