GraphITA - A workshop on synthesis, characterization and technological exploitation of graphene

(Nanowerk News) This two dimensional "dream" material has come into the main spotlight of fundamental and applied research in diverse nano-science fields, but surprisingly rapidly, it has also attracted the interest of major stakeholders in the private sector (especially industries in the ICT sector). The technological exploitation of graphene can be considered to be based on four fundamental interconnected wide topics: growth and synthesis methods, nano-structuring and tailoring of graphene properties, structural and physical characterization, and device design and applications.
GraphITA - A Multidisciplinary and Intersectorial European Workshop on Synthesis, Characterization and Technological Exploitation of Graphene - will take place on May 15-18, 2011 in Assergi, Italy.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists and engineers working on different technological uses of graphene in a multidisciplinary and multisectorial (academia/industry) environment. Participants will be offered the chance to meet world class leading scientists in the field. The scope of the workshop is to informally network all the participants to enhance their potential research on graphene. Participation of early stage researchers, PhD students and post-docs is strongly encouraged.
COST is a knowledge partner for the programme development of the workshop and will be represented on the speakers panel, in the exhibition as well as on the poster evaluation committee.
