GrapHEL - A multidisciplinary conference/workshop on synthesis, characterization and technological exploitation of graphene

(Nanowerk News) In the past few years, graphene based research has witnessed a tremendous explosion. This two-dimensional "dream" material has come into the main spotlight of fundamental and applied research in diverse nanotechnology 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, nanostructuring and tailoring of graphene properties, structural and physical characterization, and device design and applications.
Building on the huge success of the graphITA workshop in the Gran Sasso Labs in L' Aquila, Italy, we would like to inform you that we are now organising the grapHEL (graphene-Hellas) conference/ workshop, a follow up European event on the synthesis, characterisation and applications of graphene.
The conference will be held on the island of Mykonos, Greece from 27 to 30 September 2012.
The aim of the conference/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 conference/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.
The conception and the organization of this series of workshops/ conferences are based on bottom-up initiatives and are not the result of a commercial drive by a profit-making organization. GrapHEL addresses the real need of scientists of the graphene community for close interaction and for reviewing current progress in a broad range of activities.
