Conference Promotion – GRAPCHINA 2017

Materials Horizons and Nanoscale Horizons are proud to be partnering with GRAPCHINA 2017, which takes place on 24 – 26 September 2017 at Nanjing International Exhibition Centre, China.

 

This International Graphene Global Innovation Conference has become a significant commercial and academic event that gathers approximately 2000 representatives for all stakeholders involved in graphene technologies, bringing top level speakers and delegates from the industries, NGOs and academia together with senior policy makers from the EU’s flagship program and national government.

Key speakers include:

  • Sir Andre Geim, Nobel Prize winner
  • Professor Yong Gan, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Engineering
  • Professor Andrea C. Ferrari, Founding Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre (and Associate Editor for Nanoscale)
  • and many more!

The conference will be divided into three parallel symposia, focusing on different topics like graphene and 2D materials frontier research, graphene-related emerging industries, graphene application in traditional industries. The symposia cover areas of fundamental research, graphene manufacturing, energy application, health and environment, sensors and communication, composites application, etc. There will also be three special forums, aiming to push international collaboration, accelerate characterization and standardization method, and promote national graphene industry bases. The topics center on promising commercial projects, graphene characterization method, graphene standardization, and local supports for graphene industry bases.

Important Dates:

  • Early Registration 12 July 2017
  • Poster Submission 15 August 2017

1st European Conference on Chemistry of Two-Dimensional Materials (Chem2DMat)

Materials Horizons will be supporting the 1st European Conference on Chemistry of Two-Dimensional Materials (Chem2DMat), which will take place in Strasbourg on 22-26 August 2017. This conference aims at providing a forum to the rapidly growing community of scientists mastering the chemical approaches to 2D materials in order to fabricate systems and devices exhibiting tunable performance.

 

The conference will cover all areas related to 2D materials’ chemistry spanning their synthesis as well as their functionalization, using covalent and non-covalent approaches, for composites, foams and coatings, membranes, (bio-)sensing, (electro- and photo-)catalysis, energy conversion, harvesting and storage, electronics, nanomedicine, biomaterials, with sessions on the following themes:

  • Synthesis, processing and multiscale characterization
  • Bottom-up growth
  • Covalent and non-covalent functionalization
  • Synthetic two-dimensional materials
  • Design of 3D functional materials from layered systems

 

Some important deadlines:

  • Abstract submission (poster & talks) on 15 June
  • Early-bird registration ends 15 May
