Graphene Week 2011: Fundamental Science of Graphene and Applications of Graphene-Based Devices

EU | Posted on November 15th, 2010

The Graphene Week 2011 conference will be devoted to science and technology of graphene, advances in its growth and chemical processing, manufacturing graphene-based devices and studies of electronic transport, investigation of physical properties using ARPES, STM and AFM, emerging applications of this new material. It will also address studies of optical properties of graphene and their applications in optoelectronics, graphene manufacturing by mechanical and chemical exfoliation, synthesis on SiC, and growth on metals and semiconductors. Sessions will also cover the emerging studies of nanomechanical devices incorporating graphene flakes.

The conference programme will incorporate invited reviews, contributing talks, and two poster sessions. The organizers will welcome all researchers working on graphitic systems and scientists and postgraduate students from all countries.

Invited speakers will include:

* Igor Aleiner - Columbia U., US
* Antonio Castro Neto - Boston U., US/ U. of Singapore, SG
* Hongjie Dai ** - U. of Stanford, US
* Yuriy Dedkov - FHI Berlin, DE
* Michael Fuhrer - Maryland U., US
* Roman Gorbachev - Manchester U., UK
* Francisco Guinea - Madrid U., ES
* Byung Hee Hong - Sungkyunkwan U., KR
* Euyheon Hwang - Maryland U., US
* James Hone - Columbia U., US
* Alexey Kuzmenko - Geneve U., CH
* Brian LeRoy - U. of Arizona, US
* Alan MacDonald - U. of Texas, US
* Charles Marcus - Harvard U., US
* Konstantin Novoselov - Manchester U., UK
* Tomás Palacios - MIT, US
* Marcos Pimenta - U. of Minas Gerais, BR
* Aron Pinczuk - Columbia U., US
* Eli Rotenberg - Berkeley U., NL
* Tomas Seyller - U. Erlangen-Nürnberg, DE
* Feng Wang - UC Berkeley, US
* Amir Yacoby - Harvard U., US
* Rozitsa Yakimova - Linköping U., SE
* Alex Zettl ** - Berkeley U., US (** to be confirmed)

The conference is open to scientists world-wide, whether from academia or industry. Attendance is possible only after successful application. A certain number of support grants covering the conference fee (in full or partially) will be available for early stage researchers. Grant requests should be made by ticking appropriate field(s) in the paragraph "Grant application" of the application form.

Full conference programme and applications accessible online from www.esf.org/conferences/11350.

Closing date for applications: 24 January 2011.
